Re: Miracle size for gum
i recently looked through the b&s forum archives to find the product rich is using. it's called "gac100" from golden.
it should be something similar to the gamblin pva size. i think i remember reading that he got somewhat mixed results with it, but still uses it. another product not available in europe, btw.
for me, i could never get any size based on acrylic to work with gum - fish eyes, horrible coating and flaking. but i haven't tried the medium from golden. only gessos and "acrylic medium 1: glossy" from lascaux.
