Patricia,
Do note the location of Real Gesso is Athens, Georgia, USA; not Athens, Greece. Postage from both sites in the US might be about the same, but I suppose you would know better than me....

Enrico,
A very fine painting. I love the intricate pattern of the basket against the more random pattern of the cherries. Despite such attention to linear movement and contours, you still achieve a...

Andrei,
Yes. Panels are often stored lying horizontally, in cabinets or on open shelves. Ideally they would not be stacked on top each other, especially if they are wood. For vertical storage it's...

Have you tried painting with a little quicklime, as is used in fresco? Maybe that would work for you on stone, although you would be starting from a white vehicle rather than a colorless one. You'd...

MatG,
If the cracks are running parallel to the wood grain, that's an easy thing to prevent on the next panel. After you size your plywood panel with skin glue, soak some thin cotton or linen in...

That's a good-looking painting so far. You mind shooting some details?

Phil and Jeff,
Many works by Toulouse-Lautrec were painted in distemper on cardboard. Vuillard used it, too. It really is a nice looking medium.

I second Claudio's comment. I use both titanium and zinc. I'll use the former when I need an opaque light color, and the latter when I need a tint that is semi-transparent. Perhaps more time will...

Jeff,
If you were using whiting as a glaze to soften colors, you may want to try terra bianca di Vicenza. It carries very little tinting strength, but makes a nice wash to warm up colors slightly....

Matt,
It does sound like you're using a little rich egg-to-water ratio. I'd back off the yolk a bit and just continue to work on top of it. Perhaps do let it dry a couple of days first; it may...

I can't see any benefit to pouncing except perhaps on very large works, like frescos. Even then, a lot of muralists trace/incise their cartoons into the wet plaster rather than pounce.
For tempera...

Jason,
I'm with you -- I've bought a few Shiva tube colors that were almost unusable. I found their green earth was thick and pasty with nearly no tinting strength, even less than you'd expect for...

Jeff,
I haven't used glair for making paint, but I read that it was a favored vehicle for manuscript illuminators. I've used it to stick down little bits of missing gilding. It has a bit of tack to...

Hi Jeff,
I don't know exact proportions, I've just sort of diluted yolk by look and feel to make a clear "glaze." (I know glaze isn't the right term -- clear coat, maybe?) My guess is it's about 10...

Mayer has the proportions all wrong for slaking quicklime as well -- at least in the edition I own. While useful, his books are not infallible.
