True Gesso versus Acrylic Gesso - Egg Tempera Forums. What are the benefits /drawbacks of true gesso versus an acrylic gesso for egg tempera painting?
What is the viability of tempera painting executed on an acrylic ground? A reply by Ross Merrill, head of the conservation department at the National Gallery of Art in Washington. Let's take the three materials in question, an egg tempera paint film, a tradition glue gesso, and an acrylic "gesso" and look briefly at their properties.
Acrylic "gesso" is a misnomer since "gesso" is gypsum in Italian and there is no gypsum in most acrylic "gesso" formulations. Unfortunately, the term "gesso" was adopted by the acrylic paint industry to promote sales of the acrylic emulsion grounds rather than to indicate a relationship to traditional glue gesso. Egg Tempera Grounds. The ground is the prepared painting surface and for egg tempera this should be a traditional gesso.
This gesso is a mixture of some form of whiting (chalk, gypsum, marble dust or titanium oxide), rabbitskin glue and water. Acrylic gesso is not so absorbent and is certainly not chemically compatible with egg tempera. The support must first be sized with a layer of rabbitskin glue which acts as an isolating coat and helps to bind the gesso to the support. This layer of glue sizing is made up of the same rabbitskin glue mixture that is used in making the gesso. (In a ratio of 1 ounce glue to 16 fluid ounces of water.) There are a number of tried and tested traditional gesso recipes. 16 fluid ounces water1 ounce of glue24 ounces (by volume) of whiting By volume?

The Materials Information and Technical Resources for Artists (MITRA) online resource was inspired by the work of the late Mark Gottsegen who organized and implemented the Artist Materials Information Education Network, otherwise known as AMIEN.
Mark was able to bring together materials experts from the industry, art conservators, and scientists in an effort to make the most up-to-date knowledge regarding artists’ materials readily available. The eventual disappearance of AMIEN was sorely felt throughout the art community, inspiring a handful of individuals to revive Mark’s vision. The Department of Art Conservation at the University of Delaware is honored to participate in this online initiative which now includes educational resources in addition to an interactive forum that will provide independent information on art materials.
MITRA is headed by Assistant Professor, conservator, and art materials expert, Brian Baade, and paintings conservator Dr. Kristin DeGhetaldi. Future Goals. Techniques anciennes - CoursBeauxArts.fr.
