Re: [BKARTS] acrylic medium

Acrylic medium is archival and safe. It won't yellow overtime. It dries
flexible and clear. Basically once any acrylic based medium dries, it is
dried plastic. My favorite brand is Golden soft gel gloss...but locally in
L.A. I've also used "Nova Color" brand paints and they have been around for
decades. I tend to stick, however, though with Acrylic medium for
"collaging/painting and using PVA glue for bookbinding. But that said,
there shouldn't be any reason why you can't use acrylic medium for
bookbinding...just remember a little goes a long way.

and I have been making art for a long time,(before Yes! I used acrylic
medium)  still...I consider my self warned...so what's the word on Acrylic
medium? Is that better? If so, is there a brand that's better to use?  I
don't want repositionable I want things to stay put and not turn color or
become lumpy and brittle.
