David J Teter replied to Linnea Lahlum's discussion Looking for an archival white acrylic paint
"Yes, Shiva is a lower quality brand, especially an old tube but that usually won't apply to yellowing. The mediums in all paints, oil, acrylics, gouache etc will separate so it could be you did not 're-mix' it. Knead the tube or use a…"

David J Teter replied to Linnea Lahlum's discussion Does gesso re-hydrate once dry?
"No, gesso and modeling paste are permanent once dry. Neither will re-activate or rehydrate like watercolor, gouache or poster paint (tempera)."

David J Teter replied to Linnea Lahlum's discussion Smoothing cut edges of Gatorfoam?

David J Teter replied to Linnea Lahlum's discussion Smoothing cut edges of Gatorfoam?
"You could ask Connie Mettler why you are not able to upload the photos. Ok, so these are already glued together. If you do more later try doing the edges together as a stack all at once before assembly. Your squeeze bottle is a good idea. Hopefully…"

David J Teter replied to Linnea Lahlum's discussion Smoothing cut edges of Gatorfoam?
"Aaargh! part of my edited comment got lost. Can you post a photo of one of them? I think I understand now. It sounds like you have assembled a box (drawer or tray) similar to a stretched canvas frame where you will be wrapping the Japanese…"

David J Teter replied to Linnea Lahlum's discussion Smoothing cut edges of Gatorfoam?
"Thought about it. The only problem with taping/tying them together is only 2 sides can be done at a time. What about still doing a stack of them laying flat on a 'lazy susan' then weight the stack with heavy books or something to compress…"

David J Teter replied to Linnea Lahlum's discussion Smoothing cut edges of Gatorfoam?
"Well, it is a matter of problem solving. If its me I would give up the one at a time and the system you are using now and find a way. This kind of thing is not the artistic side of making art but the production that goes onto it. You want to…"

David J Teter replied to Ryan Rabbass's discussion Best way to build out wood shelves in a cargo van?
"2x4's and chicken wire sounds like a bad idea. Google 'cargo van built in shelving' and you'll see plenty of examples from DIYers building from scratch or adapting existing shelving. Buying shelving from companies who specialize…"

David J Teter replied to Tony burns's discussion Brazen people with high def cell phones video recording booths
"I thought it was too good to be true. That explains why the ads were so vague.  with no real tech data. I guess the only place we'll ever see it is in the movies."

David J Teter replied to Tony burns's discussion Brazen people with high def cell phones video recording booths
"You could look into these camera jammers. Of course cell phone jammers are not legal but maybe camera jammers are. It might depend on the state. So I'm NOT advocating anything illegal. The first link is an app for android which sets up a field…"

David J Teter replied to Chris King's discussion How to cover curtains in convention center?
"I may be picturing it wrong in my head but if their grotty curtains are part of the dividers and your booth can't you use magnets? One on the backside of grotty, the other on your side. Any home center or hardware store has them in various…"
