Re: Art Boards Gesso???

Yikes! Sorry for the USD 27 I have made you spend... (If you brought the
quart size.)

Have you diluted the gesso? I've read somewhere that diluting gesso more
than 2:1 (gesso:water) is not a good idea...

I guess I will have to find rabbit skin glue (never saw in my suppliers)
in order to make my own gesso (I mean the good old formula, not modern
acrylic based ones...)

Thanks for trying...
