The traditional painting surface, that has been in use for centuries. Simply add water to the granules at a ratio of approximately 12 parts of water to 1 part of granules and allow to stand overnight. This will result in an expansion of the granules. Place the mixture on indirect heat such as Bain Marie or double boiler – DO NOT allow to boil as it will embrittle the glue size. The resulting size can be applied hot as many artists feel there is better penetration of the cotton or linen surface. Apply two coats and allow to dry thoroughly. When storing keep in a refrigerator as this will increase the lifetime of the size. When reheating add some granules soaked in water as the size weakens on each reheating. To test if you have the correct consistency the glue when cold should like thick jelly when a finger is pushed across the surface.
