Ridgefield Guild of Artists
Established in 1974 by fourteen local artists, the Ridgefield Guild of Artists is a non-profit volunteer organization, open to all, which promotes the visual arts and arts education by providing high quality gallery space for exhibition, art classes for children and adults, opportunities for artist-in residency programs, and art lectures on-site and in collaboration with other cultural organizations. Located in a turn of the century barn on Halpin Lane off Prospect Ridge Road in Ridgefield, Connecticut, the Guild contains three large gallery rooms and a studio loft. The Guild is governed by an elected board of directors and new members are always welcome.
Love the copper and will be buying the others!I have been wanting copper post cap solar lights and they are just too pricey, I found a 2 pack of inexpensive solar lights, they were brown and we all know what happens to that plastic after baking in the Sun, then it occurred to me that I had the copper and I figured I'd try it on the lights, it covered beautifully in 2 coats. I wasn't sure if I had to seal them until now, but I used Krylon Maxx Clear Satin Spray Paint on them,and to my surprise, the spray instantly turned the copper a beautiful pinkish patina that happens naturally on copper. I will be doing this on my new deck lights before they are mounted, it is really beautiful!
I have been using Fluid paper for a few years now and find that it's a great value for the price. The quality is suitable for beginner to intermediate level painters. Very easy to work with, accepts watercolor paints, pencils, aqua crayons and markers well.
Working with Pebeo products is so much fun and I love the different affects that can be achieved by using Prisme, Vitrail and glitter together.
Cons: Some colors in the Pebeo Prisme line became thick and gooey after 4 to 6 months of storage. I attempted to thin the paint with paint thinner but it was still too thick. I wrote the Pebeo Customer Service Department and have yet to hear from them (it's been approximately one week now).
Regardless, when I want to create something unique I will continue to use them.
