Another thought. I store all my acrylics and ink and markers and anything that has a hint of a possibility of drying out in a ziplock bag inside another ziplock bag with all the air pushed out and sealed when not using them. Been able to keep things useable for years.

Subject: Re: [SCIART] Gesso without a screw cap?

Michelle Schwengala:  I have put a dollup of thought into a different cap, but to date it involves a separate removable cap liner. :)

Linda:  I'm with you on the small is beautiful.  I wish someone would make a liquid mask in a 10ml size, perhaps in a bag of 5 or 10 of these.  I've tried putting a film of water on Pro White....another substance I wish came in 10ml size, and it does work.  But draining it off to put 4 or 5 thin layers on a piece of masonite seems more trouble than it's worth.  I'm going to try saran wrap screwed on under the lid and over the cap threads.  At least that has the advantage of being lifted off before the dried flecks begin falling.  Thanks for the suggestion, though.

You bring up a good point, Bruce. Why by the "economy vat" when you know you aren't going to use it.  It's the same way I feel about maskoid or liquit frisket, or super glue. It's going to dry up after a few uses and be wasted if I by the large size. So I get the small size, pay a wee more, and start fresh each time.
We become "trained" when small to economize, and it works for toothpaste, but not sure it works for some art materials.

Have you thought of filling the gesso container with water on top of the gesso. gently gently, so it doesn't soak into the product, but displaces the air that dries it out?  It doesn't have to be filled to the brim, just a 1/2" coat. Then gently suction, absorb with a paper towel,  or pour it off.  If some water gets in, at least it will just make the gesso thinner, not degraded.

Cheers, and I hope you work it out.
Linda

Thanks, all.  If the jar gets tipped it undoes any attempts at cleaning the cap before closing it.  However the saran wrap sounds like a great idea, and I'll give it a try.  I have an artist friend in SCarolina that began buying gesso in gallon jugs for this very reason, but a gallon is much more than I'd probably ever use.

Thanks again,
Bruce

If you have a suggestion for an alternate product design, consider dropping the folks at Golden a line about it. Over the last few years, some of their staff members  (including someone in the Golden family) have done product demos at my local (very small!) art supply store and they sound very receptive to thoughtful input from customers.  Be (or at least suggest) the change you want to see!




Carry on, beetle.

Hi,

I'm so annoyed with Golden Gesso.....not the product especially, but the container in which it's sold.  Unscrew the cap and cured gesso immediately cracks into hard chips.  A few of which always seem to find their way into the coat I'm applying.  Suggestions?
