<< Try adding a dollop of glycerin to your paste when mixing in the
pigment. It gives the paste a nice slippery texture for mark making
and also helps with the cracking. Also the type of paper used could
be a factor. Thick and/or heavily sized papers or coated papers that
don't fold easily anyway will definitely crack the paste surface.
Definitely don't use tempera, acryli paint or water based block
printing ink is best.
What type of paper do you recommend using for paste papers that will be used
for book covers?
