Dear readers,


Today I worked again on a mini of 20/20 cm. It is a perfect size for me: I start one and usually can finish it the same day. Unlike when I work on the bigger paintings I don’t need to prepare much. Just sit, paint, brushes, hairdryer and a cup of tea at hand, and go!

    I was hoping you’d say wallpaper!

    I was further wondering if you would mount it on something, and now I have an answer without even having had to ask.

    Do you use matte medium to mount these wallpaper paintings?

      Yes, I might use matte medium. That is what JD uses. But I have also something that is called ‘Acrylaatbinder’. It is sort of the acrylic paint without the pigment. It can work as a kind of glue.
      I only mounted something once, so I only used the acrylaatbinder until now.
      One thing that I am asking myself: can I remove the painting from the panel after glueing it. If nobody wants it, or I get bored of it: will the panel be lost? I will found out (or not, if everything sells and I never get bored of my work …;-))

    My good old wallpaper 😉 It still works fantastic, It is heavy, does not curl, easy to mount on a panel. I then seal the whole thing.
    Still lots of rolls to go 😉

    Thank you!!!
