@PaulB - What thickness do you use? Its available in 2,3 and 4 mm.
has anyone mixed plaster of paris with oil primer for a ground? My mother and aunts did this but I don't know the particulars. I don't think they mixed it with water and the paint consistincy wasn't that different from the tube paint with a little linseed oil.
@Richard_P I am confused too. That's why I keep flailing around trying all these different techniques. The difference here is that it's fairly rough cotton canvas. There is plenty of tooth and it's working fine. But I want to use smooth media. I want control such that if texture is required I can do it and get coverage. If I need it smooth I can do that and get coverage. It's the inconsistency that is making me crazy.
Have you counted the dots yet @PaulB?
