Gouache Paint Development
Hard/ soft pastels powdered. Mulled with large excess of water / linseed oil saponified gel/ gel methyl cellulose. Rapid blending occurs. The paint is poured in plastic pans and food dehydrator concentrates the product. The saponified linseed gel has glycerol which aids brushing to surface. I am seeing the possibility of impasto technique (no cracking seen- so far) . The saponified linseed oil can still dry ( polymerize) and this may aid impasto!
