homemade gesso!

here is a pic of my first trial batch of homemeade gesso! i found the recipe on you-tube(of course) and since it was simple, used all household products, and the artist that had the recipe really did all the leg work, she was very picky and did a great testing of many recipes and this one was her favorite too. equal parts baby powder, elmer type glue, and white paint, i used white acrylic as it was all i had but she used leftover household paint. i used it for the base of the above collage, i always add paper and a piece of fabric to my base layer for texture, i loved the consistency, better than the recent cheap gesso i bought, i am a huge fan of gesso and use it alot, but it is expensive so u can imagine how happy i am! i also found a recipe for modeling paste, i will let u know how it turns out after i try it1 aloha, angi in hana
