Re: fabriano artistico EW

Thanks, will try to acidify soon, with hydrochloric acid -> I once coated
traditional white with oxalic acid rich ferric oxalate (there was 1 part
oxalic acid per 2 parts ferric oxalate in the solution) and it got pretty
gritty. Maybe EW is different than the traditional white I got?
Unfortunately the distributor doesn't stock EW, perhaps painters around
here don't like the EW...

:) Scattering? Try 1+1 diluted hydrocote polyshield clear gloss wood
finish (if you don't mind a little glossy print) and you'll be surprised!
