Northwest Pastel Society
The Northwest Pastel Society (NPS) was incorporated on October 5, 1988 as a nonprofit corporation dedicated to promoting pastel as a fine art medium. Through NPS open juried international exhibitions, juried members' exhibitions, workshops, and quarterly newsletters and meetings (except in summer) members enjoy sharing knowledge, learning new painting techniques, and passing on published information. Membership has grown from a small nucleus of Seattle area artists, to a membership drawn from throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
This is by far the best ink I have used for my comics!
Consistency is perfect. Pigment has the tendency to settle at the bottom of the bottle but I just stir it with a brush and it dissolves quickly.
I buy this product in batches,because I am terrified that it will be discontinued.
Joe Kubert's school recommended this ink.
I have used these exact brushes exclusively for over 30 years teaching art to students from kindergarten to college. They hold up extremely well, if washed properly. They also hold a point and can handle a lot of paint at once. If taken care of they can last for years of continuous use. Students appreciate their quality and get much better results with a higher grade of brush, I cannot believe that Loew-Cornell has discontinued making them; so get them while you can find them.
