Eh, I didn't want to open a new thread, but I figured it was better than waiting for a dead thread to ressurect
I have some white house paint (the label says latex satin) that my mom gave to me, and I was wondering if you good folks have any opinion about using it as a primer on paper. My plan was to coat this 98 lb paper a few times and use it for oil studies and sketches. However, in the past people have bought oil sketches of mine - I didn't charge a lot because I was concerned about yellowing, but I want to be mindful of archival work in the event people want to purchase some more of my sketches in the future. I'm on a student budget, so I thought it would be advantageous because it's cheap, doesn't take up space, and I won't care if I mess a painting up. Still, I want it to be somewhat durable in the event someone wants to take it home. I also have some clear gesso to coat it with again, but I really don't like how rough it is. Thoughts?
