Re: Art Boards Gesso???
Ah, the veils of hardened gum lifting off the substrate, what a
lovely sight.... (ducking and running). Thanks for report, Keith.
I've been trying out a PVA size recommended by gum printers Steve
Dowell and Jim Larimer; so far I've tried it on masa paper and didn't
find it at all satisfactory, at least at the dilution Steve
recommended (1:2). But I'll try it again at different strengths and
on different paper before rejecting it altogether. Glad I just
bought a small bottle.

Art Boards is the worst gesso I've ever used. Emulsion beads up, so
difficult to coat. I tried it on aluminum and this was the result
That was just putting in the water. No agitation.

I found a product which sounds interesting for those who want to
on impermeable and/or rigid surfaces like Yupo, aluminum sheets,
painting boards ect. ect... This product is also interesing for
since gumoil is done with oil paints on paper -> which is not a good
combination for those who like / want longevity with their works.
If I can
print on wood I want to try gumoils. (Have tried with paper, got
interesting / promising results but didn't like the oil stain on
of the paper at all!)
See the product page here: http://tinyurl.com/3s3w9e (read to bottom)
Has anyone used this (or any similar) product before? I'm still
interested in printing on impermeable media like Yupo or aluminum
giving me five important advantages: 1. cheaper price (Fabriano
is quite expensive to me compared to Yupo or aluminum sheets), 2.
dimensional stability (no shrinking step / no registration
quick drying (faster working), 4. easier reusability in case of
(you can be harsh while erasing with Yupo / aluminum and such), 5.
longevity compared to paper - but haven't found a reliable / easy
method. Keith, I envy your ability and patience in printing on
Any suggestions for / experience with similar products?
Thanks in advance,
