Re: My own PVA glue sizing experience (attn: marek + the gum woesagain)
two more things i forgot to add.:
i've noticed that the strength of the pva-size affects the thickness of the emulsion layer. with a 1+4 size the emulsion is noticeably thinner than the same emulsion on a 1+20 size. most likely because with the thinner size, there are more paper fibers for the emulsion to adhere to.
and the caparol binder size on (unprimed) canvas didn't work at all. not even the brightest highlights came off.
caparol 1+4 on primed canvas and wood (a layer of white acrylic primer beneath) did print fine, but the exposed gum had nothing to adhere to and washed off completely. the situation was a little better on the canvas than on the wood.
maybe this is interesting to someone.
