RE: My own PVA glue sizing experience (preliminary)

David, yes I feel so. Unfortunately my dimroom is a mess right now (I'm
about to move), therefore I can't elaborate further. (I may not be able to
print for a couple of weeks.) In case you want to try it yourself the full
product name is "Fil-fix Şeffaf" (şeffaf = transparent in Turkish), ask
specifically for this one. (Fil-fix is a product family name actually.)
Istanbul price for the 750g container is TRY 8.50 (~ GBP 3.50, USD 5.80).
See the label for production date; it keeps only 1 year unopened, under
ideal conditions. BTW, the odor is agreeable and it doesn't change the color
of the surface. (It's white when applying it, then it becomes transparent
when dry.)

It's helpful to me Loris. It looks like you could get away with a more
dilute application doesn't it? I would love to see how it holds up to three
or four coats. Let us know how you get on. Many thanks
