Royal Photographic Society
The Royal Photographic Society was formed as The Photographic Society in 1853 with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as patrons. It was granted the use of the title 'Royal' by decree in 1894 and was presented the Royal Charter in 2004. The Society's mission today, as in 1853, is 'to promote the Art and Science of Photography'. Membership is open to everyone with a real interest in photography, including newcomers to photography, teachers, historians and scientists, as well as dedicated amateurs and full-time professionals. The Society runs the highly acclaimed Octagon Galleries in the heart of historic Bath, England which house four changing exhibitions of photography and a museum of the history of photography drawn from the Society's internationally important Collection.
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 paint with a knife and I paint a lot. I have been using Galleria exclusively for several years. I think I can say with confidence that there is not a better paint to use if you paint with a knife. I'm new to Mister Art. I'm sure their service will be as good as their paint.
