American Society of Contemporary Artists
The American Society of Contemporary Artists, originally the Brooklyn Society of Artists, was established in 1917 by forty-four Brooklyn artists. These founding members were committed to creating new opportunities for local artists to exhibit their work. Membership was initially limited to artists working in Brooklyn, but in 1919 was extended to artists living elsewhere. ASCA provides its members opportunities to exhibit and sell their art. Networking and community are also part of the ASCA experience. At various receptions, meetings, and studio visits, exchanges of ideas and friendships occur, adding to the vitality of the organization. ASCA is comprised of approximately 100 professional artists who strive to advance painting, graphics, and sculpture. This objective is achieved in works that range from traditional representation to the completely non-figurative.
you should buy this ink if:
- you want waterproof ink (needs special solution to clean nibs, hot water does not suffice)
- you want ink that runs through pens easily (it's quite viscous)
- you want affordable ink (i got it cheap with a coupon at michael's)
- you want volume/value (i
I think this is a lot of ink, wrote two pages' worth of text, and i haven't even noticed the absence of ink)
you shouldn't buy this ink if:
- you're looking for a rich black (i think the color's around 50% gray, it's pretty consistently one shade of gray, at least with one layer)
Be very sure you have selected the colors/ pattern you will be using. Have found push molds are not very tolerant. I have read in numerous places that a thin coating of cornstarch for easy clay removal will help. This doesn't work for me(tried different molds). The result is film on piece that I need to then use thin paint brush to remove. Anxious for suggestion, as I find this very time consuming.
