1 part white glue (I used cheap white glue from the Dollar Store - you can also use PVA glue or Elmer's)
3 parts water (since I used the cheap white glue I should have decreased the water to 2 parts)
parts baby powder (since I used way more water than what I should have,
I used more baby powder. I did not measure I tilted the baby powder
container and squeezed - scientific I know)
I added some Titanium White from the an almost empty 2 oz. tube of Liquitex (there was maybe a TBSP left in it.)
mixed everything in a air tight container the constancy is like a
pancake batter - it will settle (like normal Gesso) so you will need to
mixed it before use. Surprisingly it takes paint really well, it also
sands nicely. It also way cheaper than "real" gesso - lol.
