For Brayers I use Rembrant 12" for every size. They give a nice even layer of ink. I don't like the speedball brayers because the ink dries quickly on them and they are hard to keep clean. Someone mentioned using an offset blanket as a roller. I've never tried that but I have an offset press and the roller gives great impressions. -Amanda Lebel

Dan (and anyone else interested),

With regard to finishing your BFA online, you have two separate issues going on. One is getting accepted to a college or university as a transfer student. As you look at a potential school (or schools), you will need to work with the people at that school to find out how to apply as a transfer student, how many of your previous credits would be considered transferable, and also, the limit on how many credits are allowed to be transferred. Also, the school you pick might have additional (or at least different) degree requirements than your original school.

The second issue has to do specifically with regard to the quality and the reputation of distance education programs. I would suggest that you select a school which has both traditional and online programs. In most cases, such a school would have a better reputation than a solely distance education school.

Perhaps a library trip would be in order.

I looked online at the catalog of the main library in the Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library system--the John F. Germany Public Library in downtown Tampa.

It looks like this library has some good sources to help you, including:

The College blue book. Distance learning programs (378.73 COLLEGE)
Barron's guide to distance learning : degrees, certificates, courses (378.175 CRISCITO 2002)

Sorry if this is more than you want to think about. If you want to email me off list, that would be ok. Otherwise, we should probably take this to "After 5".
