View Full Version : Kitty in egg tempera on paper

12-31-2006, 02:52 PM
Here is a small work, 5 by 7 ins, ET on ivorex paper glued to foam board.

I didn't size the paper, but I expect it has some size in it as its recommended for watercolour, inks, etc. But gluing it to the foam board kept the support rigid. And as I am just a beginner with ET, I am still using the baby version of watercolours mixed with egg yolk, for now.

Ordering dry pigments in the New year.



Happy New Year everyone!!:clap: :clap: :thumbsup:

Dear Kitty:

I came across your old posting- I plan to glue thick watercolour paper to aluminium composite board for egg tempera- any idea how I would glue the paper to aluminium?

Kind regards


(Also Scottish living in England!)

PS How is your egg tempera work progressing?

I suspect that an acrylic medium or PVA glue would adhere paper well enough to aluminum. You'd need to sand it some to give it a roughed surface to stick to, and then degrease it with denatured alcohol. Aluminum is not a support I've used, but this is what I've read about it.
