Hi thank you for making this available! I have five questions.
How do you store your shells so they don’t flake into each other? Little shelf? Plastic baggies?
Do you add any gum to that dot of shell gold? I have some just like it from ages ago and it put sparkles over my page when I tried to burnish it.
For tezhib is it also watercolors that you would use in this thick way or gouache?
How thickly is starch size to go onto paper on average?
When you use liquid or granular gum Arabic when making paint?
