North East Watercolor Society
The North East Watercolor Society was formed by Babette Roy and Don Selchow at a small bistro in Woodstock, New York. The NEWS was established under the inspiration of internationally famous teacher and artist, John Pike, whose students formed the nucleus of its charter membership. The first formal meeting, at Roy's Warwick home, included the fifteen charter members who named the organization "The Orange County Watercolor Society" and expressed the aim of the organization, the "promotion and preservation of watercolor painting." Membership expanded with the introduction of the National Juried Show in 1976 and, with revision of the by laws, the name of the organization was changed to the North East Watercolor Society to reflect the wide range of membership. The October juried exhibition is held now at the Gallery of the Kent Art Association, Kent, CT, and boasts some of today’s finest and most renowned watercolorists. The Association sponsors two workshops with nationally known artists and two demonstrations as well as at least one member show per year.
I use this tape to hold the Mylar on the drafting table. It's a very good tape! It releases without leaving residue, and it is thin enough to let the rule slide on top. The tape doesn't break while unrolling, unlike many others.
I highly recommend it.
I'm not a stencil artist but a silversmith. I have several of the 1" brushes, and they are perfect for sweeping my bench. I use the brushes to sweep the silver and gold filings off my bench, and they do a superb job of cleaning loose metal bits off my projects. I don't like to use any other brushes. I use the smaller ones ( the 1/2" and 3/8") for gently cleaning wax models and jewelry in progress. These brushes have greater control, stiffness and yet pliable bristles that does the job very well. I'm sticking with these brushes for a very long time.
