Re: caparol: finally a success!!
thanks for the tip. a few hours after the test strips, i remembered the youtube video that was posted earlier and the foam roller.
i will definitely get one, next time i'm in a hardware store.
today i got a good, smooth sizing with two simple painter's brushes. smaller for application and very thick one for smoothing.
the yellow layer (1st) of a 3-color gum printed beautiful and developed effortless (despite large white areas). the size was 1+4.
on the other hand when i sized over an older gelatin size and two passes of gum, the coat flaked horribly and washed off with the slightest touch of a jet of water. i guess the pva does not like to be coated over (hardened) gelatin.
i'm looking forward to making my first try with canvas tomorrow. it's currently drying.
