First time I heard of it. I just did some search, and it looks interesting.

Thanks for the info!

Dave, this was your comment I was responding to; I took you to mean that you'd never heard of printing with PVA before. Obviously we're miscommunicating, sorry....

What is Mowiol 88?

Hi Dave,
On the box is written:

Polyvinyl alcohol 8-88 ; small clear crystals , if you want to use it and needs some info about percentages etc. just ask.
I ordered it from Kremer Pigmente (on the box the name FLUKA is obviously the manufacturer).
Last time i contacted them, they told me that the 8-88 is not produced anymore, but the 4-44 would be the same , apart from the concentration (!)
