World Organization of China Painters
The World Organization of China Painters (WOCP) is a non-profit group dedicated to the appreciation and enrichment of the fine art of painting on porcelain. On January 17, 1962, Pauline A. Salyer started a china painting organization in the state of Oklahoma. In April 1967, she founded the World Organization of China Painters. One of the many objectives of the WOCP is to preserve a collection of fine hand painted porcelain. The collection serves to educate and deepen the appreciation of this fine art for posterity. The Organization publishes a bimonthly magazine, "The China Painter". It features educational material, colored photos of hand painted porcelain by members and photos of state and country porcelain exhibits on display in the Museum. The magazine serves as a communication network for members providing information about states, clubs, china shows and conventions.
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.
MisterArt.com has the absolute lowest price on the 20x26 size! I use them to protect my sample artwork on gallery wrapped canvas (18x24) and these help in transport to protect from scratching/marring. Plus, when it impresses the client when they see the canvas arrives protected in one of these. I'm waiting for them to get back in stock to order more. They are VERY popular for the reason I stated.

Not the world's greatest, but nice, especially given the price. More than adequate for practice pieces, and students. I pay more per tube for the professional quality paints I use now, than for this entire 18-piece collection, so if you need paints for practice, go for it! Not especially great for making custom colors- mixes tend to get muddy. Stays wet in tubes for years!
