Polyvinyl Acetate Emulsion - Colors - Equipment - Supports and Grounds - Painting Procedure

Rag paper, untempered Masonite Presdwood, and wood panels are suitable as supports for PVA painting.

Supports primed with standard glue gesso can be used, as in egg tempera. Gesso grounds can also be prepared using the PVA emulsion instead of rabbitskin glue.
