Alastair, give Stevenson's a try. They sell a very good quality calcium carbonate that I've used for many years. They also sell hide glue. I don't believe it is rabbit skin though I've used it. You can download a PDF of their catalogue, page11 has their pigment list. They sell fairly good brushes, Series A-300 are great for egg tempera. Buy enough supplies and you'll get a discount. If you go to the warehouse and have any questions the owner is more than very helpful.

Phil, I too have had the experience of the glue not being able to dissolve into a solution, I made the mistake of stockpiling an excellent batch of glue (loved it because it never created pinholes). If only the RSG containers were marked with a best before date ;-)
