Re: Old masters

I'd be very dubious of any resin base for ET. If you want to experiment, try making varnish and using that to provide a protective layer on top of ET. That would be much more in keeping with...

Re: Painting that violin

If people are going to be handling the violin in any way, then you should varnish it (after giving it 8-12 months to cure). If it's just going to hang on a wall, then your regular procedure is...

Re: spices for pigment?

Not every colored powder makes an acceptable pigment. While some ground plant matter has historically been used for painting (saffron and genuine sap green come to mind), most of it is unlikely to...

This is not an exact science, and there is a range of acceptable pigment to binder ratios that will make a workable paint. After a bit of experience, you have a sense of what works and what doesn't....

You can do it that way if you like. I have some jars of premixed pigment paste with pigments in blended mixtures I commonly use.

You can also mix paint that is already tempered. I use a ceramic or...

I haven't tried it, but all of the references I've seen indicate that egg tempera does not adhere reliably to acrylic primer.

I've never had a problem with gesso being too absorbent for ink. What kind of ink are you using? What was your gesso recipe?

Generally, there is no need for an isolating layer between ink and...

Crayons are bound in wax. Spirits of turpentine dissolve wax, but not tempera.

Re: Casein over ET

I don't know. I've never heard of cassein being used over ET. The question is whether cassein will bind properly to an ET substrate. What properties of cassein and ET make you want to do this?

Even though Rosemary has had success doing this, I would caution against it. Acrylic primer is not compatible with glue-chalk gesso. Just because it works in one environment does not mean it is a...

Re: verditer

I'm not sure what you mean by "elusive."

It is chemically similar to azurite, which is fairly stable in an egg tempera medium.

It was hardly unusual at the time. It was common in the 15th century to use powdered gold as a pigment. This was called "shell gold" because it was often kept in a mussel shell like other pigments....

Re: Bole under gold leaf?

It also provides a smooth cushion on which the gold can lay. The bole is mixed with glue and applied in layers over areas where the gold is to be applied.

A good summary of water gilding technique...

Re: gold leaf over tempera

I haven't done it, but I know people who do. Historically it was not uncommon to apply leaf over tempera or oil paint. This would be done by oil gilding, since water gilding on top of paint would be...

I haven't used MDF at that size. If it were me, I'd use masonite or birch plywood. If you want to use MDF, I would suggest the thicker kind to help resist warping (even though it will be heavier) and...
