Re: My own PVA glue sizing experience (attn: marek + the gum woesagain)
yes! great idea.
i have a pack of marble dust (same thing, iirc) around! i bought it for mixing with gesso, but results were not too good, better than without though. completely forgot about it. thanks for the reminding me.
and i can totally understand you. i get wet eyes a lot, when i look at the prices in the usa.
since you know a lot more about the subject than me,
do you think a change in weather (from a normal, sunny autumn day, to a rainy day) could change the humidity within my apartment in a way that it affects the drying of the gum emulsion?
iirc, you humidify your paper before coating and/ or printing?
