Hell my lovelies, I ran out of my gesso, only having used it
sparingly :).  This is a money saving recipe..
I made the last batch but found it a little to runny so I
started out with the same recipe
1 part white paint,
1 part talc powder,
half part liqued glue,
Just kept adding a bit at a time and stopped when I like the consistency.. To paint over something and still see some of
the images..

Now I wanted some a little thicker more like a paste
I then added Backing soda, this seemed okay to me :)
even though I really haven't seen what it looks like, well
in videos, not with my magpie eyes ^-^.
 You can decide how much to add your self.

I tried to take the pic, so you could see all the
ingredients, but it was falling as you can see :O),
 then splat made a mess, but that's okay..

I didn't want to waste what was on my tiny whip,
I whacked it to let drops land on a paper, which I
have been putting the gold ink I was using,
 by rubbing my paint brush on the paper.
I ran a plastic card through the dots,  slashes going
the opposite way, I'll put this lovely piece in with
my stash to use another day....
 I hope this help, any question
let me know,THANKS for stopping by.
Hope you have a wonderful creative day..

You are so inventive - what a fabulous experiment to make your own gesso - and I love your "whacked, whipped" tag background - so cool!
