An accurate polymer picture…

As a guest blogger, I would like to direct your attention to an issue that affects the polymer community and to offer you the opportunity to have your opinion heard.

The manufacturers are grappling with many issues that center around reformulating polymer and bringing the best product to market. Your response to this comprehensive survey allows you to rank which issues are most important to you. With an accurate picture of our needs manufacturers may make products that suit us better.

Grab your favorite beverage and expect to invest 10 to 15 minutes of your time to answer 40 questions. The responses will be tallied and sent as one document to all the polymer manufacturers. Here’s the survey.

As a thank you for your efforts, you will have a chance to win an autographed copy of Terra Nova – Polymer Art at the Crossroads, released in conjunction with the opening of the Racine Art Museum’s exhibition. This special book has been signed by all the boundary-breakers! To enter the drawing, fill out the survey and comment on this post “I took the survey.” Then check next Monday to see if you won.

Editor’s Note: Congratulations to Carol Dotin, winner of this giveaway. Thanks to all who participated.

                  I took the survey. Can’t wait to see how it turns out. Maybe there’s hope for Cobalt Blue and Zinc Yellow, after all (fingers crossed).

                              I took the survey but the link at the end did not work on 2 different browsers. A reply to my email about this said to leave this comment here to be entered into the drawing. Thank you!

Even though the drawing for the Terra Nova book has closed- Carol Dotin was the winner- the survey is still open. Mags Bonham has let me know that as of this morning 947 artists have participated, including the 480 that have posted here on PCD.
