Hi Camilla,

My apologies for taking so long to get back with you. We use Becker's Latexspackle where I work. You might have access to it where you live. But it can also be ordered from here:...

Hi Camilla,

The pH of the glue is just fine. Linen is slightly acidic anyway--if I remember correctly it's around a 6 or 5, too. Not sure what pH cotton duck is, but I wouldn't worry.

Good luck!! :grin: I think once you've tried the procedure on a scrap piece of canvas, things will make more sense and you'll feel more confident about it. It's really not that difficult.

That's right, Camilla. Just try to put the yarns back into place as best you can. Sometimes it's impossible if they've been distorted or ruptured too badly. If some overlap, clip them so that they...

Hi again, Camilla,

Sorry for the confusion--I always leave something out by accident. :)

Your definition of archival glue is correct. It can also be reversed fairly easily. You want to use a...

Hi LaurieO,

I would suggest mixing zinc white, cad yellow (try light and medium and see what you prefer) and a little Venetian red to get a color approximating naples yellow. You can also try...

Chinese white is the same thing as zinc white--ZnO--zinc oxide. It was first introduced as a watercolor pigment in 1834 by Winsor and Newton under the name 'Chinese White'.

I agree with Rob completely--if the paper is kept attached to a solid support you have a very good chance of long term survival of your work. This is true of oil paint as well. Stable environmental...

Hi Rob,

Did you prepare the paste yourself from dry pigment or is this a proprietary mixture? Are you seeing this happen with *all* your paintings where you used this pigment or is it this one...

Hi again, David,

Just found a diagram of the main constituent of turpentine, which is called alpha-Pinene. Wish I could post it here, but I'm not sure how. The molecular shape is indeed a benzene...

Dear David,
