Default grassa recipes

Just thought I'd share this with you.

My last recipe:
2/3 yolk
1/3 - 1/2 walnut oil, 1/2 Venice turpentine , 1 drop oil if spike lavender.
I didn't like so much. Tended to lift the previous layers readily.

Better ET recipe
2/3 yolk
1/3-1/2 dammar, 1/2venice
1drop spike

When mixed with no water it slowly became the consistency of maroger's but slightly thicker.
I then thinned it a bit with water.
When mixing to paint, I thinned it a bit more. Then added it to watercolors or gouache , and then thinned as needed.

This one works pretty well
