I've a book at school on art materials (really weighty--goes into chemical
compounding) which may help. I'm going by this afternoon and will e-mail
you the title.
Can anyone direct me to a book or books that deals with archival issues in
painting. A book that answer questions like is masonite a suitable
material to paint on? What kind of glue is best to use in gluing canvas to
a board? Should oil paints only be painted on an oil primed surface?
