On to the real news:
More new designs have gone up, and a few new artists have been introduced:
I've also got an exciting new product introduced to the ACEO blanks line for artist – watercolor blocks! Just like the full sized blocks, these 2.5" x 3.5" blocks are glue-bound on all sides with just enough free space to slip in a pallet knife and pry the sheets apart. Available in hot or cold press Arches 140 watercolor paper, these have been tested and given thumbs up by a number of artists – they will take a lot of abuse and resist curling as you work. They also give you something to grab onto while you're painting. Wondering what the heck ACEOs are? Eliza Leahy tells us in this issue of EMG-Zine!
It's really great watching the new site come together. Still no definite ETA on when it will go public, but watch this space!
Our fourth issue, and a quarter of the year is past us. I'm really, terribly proud of our staff and regular contributors. And don't worry, this is not our last issue. The PA Spotlight is on hold until the coding is finished for our administrative backend, as is the Critique Corner. I'm still piecing together these page individually every month, and though I may have been teasing about closing EMG, I'm not fooling when I say I've got plenty on my plate right now!
Danger Will Robinson! Danger! Print prices are a-going up! The wonderful, lovely paper that I used to carry has been discontinued by Hahnemuhle, and my stash has finally begun to run dry. I've moved up to Hahnemuhle's next grade of paper, and oh my. I'm a convert, and suspect you will be, too! The new paper is their Photo Rag 188 gm, a tree-free paper which is heavier and richer than the previous kind. Of course, with the upgrade in quality comes a higher price. Small prints will be going up by $0.50, large prints by $1.50. Order now to lock in the lower pricing.
