The hydrangeas are still blooming with a little help from me watering them. I used one of my Ball jars for this painting. Growing up we had a garden and I learned canning from my aunt Adelaide. She also liked flowers so she would still like this use.
I have been trying to find a mdf or masonite board that is formadehyde free and moisture resistant. Currently I use Ampersand hardboard panel and cut to size on a table saw. I will then coat with Golden GCA100 then 2 coats of gessoe. Sometimes a final coat of Liquitex transparent gessoe with colored acrylic added which gives a nice grainy finish that works well for my style of painting. During my internet search I found a product called Medite II which is formadahyde free. Does anyone use this and where can you find it.?
