New Mexico Watercolor Society
The New Mexico Watercolor Society (NMWS) was founded May 2, 1969, as a statewide chapter of the Southwestern Watercolor Society of Dallas, Texas. In January 1975, the NMWS became an independent entity. The purpose of the Society is the elevation of the stature of watercolor as an art medium and the education of the public as to the significance of watercolor as an important creative permanent painting medium. The ultimate goal is to make New Mexico known nationally for its watercolorists. NMWS members participate in annual exhibits sponsored by the society, educational workshops conducted by nationally known artists, and enjoy the fellowship of other artists during the monthly Paint Out sponsored by the society. Non-juried exhibits are scheduled throughout the year at various alternate space venues for members to exhibit their work.
This stuff is amazing! I have used it on many different mediums over the years with fantastic results; glass, metal, wood and a little fabric.
It pays to read up on the product before you use it. There are many little tips that artists have discovered that aren't given with the manufacturers instructions. MisterArt.com has the best price going for Lazertran.
I've had one of these for about 15yrs. Still works like new.I have used it for everything I have ever painted. The sustained pressure is about 20- 25 psi (according to my gauge) The control knob is a bit small though, and many times I've had to use pliers if I tighten it to much and it gets stuck, so I added my own flow control. Quite noisy for it's size, and I like to work at night in my garage, so I have to be mindful of the time (for the neighbors). Because it vibrates; it is noisier on a hollow floor vs a concrete floor etc. It also lacks an on/off switch which I solved by plugging it into a power bar that I could use my toe to start and stop. I paid $80 for mine. Completely maintenance free. The cord is longer than what is pictured here.
ease of use 5/5
Noise Level 2/5
Used Acrylics, latex, enamels
For Illustrations, helmets, models, fridges, small murals etc.
In addition to my first review about krylon fusion clear u v protection ; the directions say that if you use a krylon base that the clear will go on white and after 24 hours it will turn clear . Well 4 days later my plastic gun stock is still a pretty pearl white ; not the neat camo paint job I intended . I gave it a far sight more than 24 hours ; I guess it's back to the drawing board !!!!!
