No - not confusing at all. Thanks for clarifying for me. I do landscapes generally, so a good 'sky routine' is important for me. I will definitely give your technique a try.

HAH! I found the reference to my water question

Yesterday I was re-reading Koo's fine book, and voila - I found the 'use all the water you want' quote in there. It apparently wasn't in these Forums as I first thought.

Thanks Bron and Mona. I did remember about the glass/razor blade test for tempera, but I thought you had to wait overnight for it. ? Where do I get this stuff from? :doh2:

How to make a thin thin glaze

If I understand what I read (here in the Forums) properly - really thin glazes are the secret to outstanding ET paintings. And to achieve this, first you get your tempera mixture concocted. Mix a...

Thanks for the info. I'm puzzled, however, as to why an acrylic gesso is so damaging to ET, but someone can use an acrylic underpainting. Acrylic is acrylic, no?

Wow

I am forever amazed at how much more creative so many artists are than I am. In a zillion years I wouldn't have thought of doing something so daring and wild. Actually I would never even attempt a...

ET with acrylic polymer emulsion?

Hi all. Been a long time (1 year) since I've posted. Just when I got ready to actually paint - bang, my partner has a stroke. Then another. So it's been a busy year. All is well now - not even any...

I Have a Theory!

I warned you earlier - I read a few books, and already I have a 'theory.' LOL I'm sure it's not a new one though. But I thought one of you might shed some light.

First I read Sultan's book. Then...

Cracked gesso

Koo - I appreciate your concern. I did check my panels (I made 6 of them) for cracks. Only 1 had a tiny section (2 square inches) in one corner that was cracked. And you're right - it was because the...

Hi Stephen. I think a video is a great idea. Not sure what you're asking for when you say "Please let me know" however. I think I'm getting dense in my dotage. Please clarify for me.

Oops - okay, I take back the 'mishandled' part. Allergies you can't do anything much about. I can't imagine what it would be in acrylic paints that would cause a reaction though - let's hope it's not...
