First coat of paint with the egg white glare and ultramarine blue pigment. It has a nice purity to the value if the pigment. It’s got a smoother feel coming off the brush than the Gum Arabic has.

By the way, the glare I have is about 4 years old and doesn’t even smell anymore. I did some research a few years back that once it settles out, and doesn’t smell anymore, and the older the better, then it’s a real delight to work with. I’m thinking that research was absolutely correct. I’m loving it so far. We’ll see how it adheres to this piece of vellum. So far, so very good!
