So tonight I began experimenting with et for oil paints. My emulsion is 30ml yolk + 10 ml oil of spike lavender. This is to be mixed with tube oil paints. I have found that, with the more intensive 'bite' of the spike lavender, the emulsion mixes quite easily by brush with the tube paints. Handling was pretty good, and in about 2 hours it is fairly dry already. The ground I'm using is Arches 140lb OIl paper. Tomorrow,... I'll second layer it all.
