Homemade Gesso

Recipe for homemade "Gesso":

1 Part Glue-All (Elmer's Glue)
3 Parts Joint Compound

Add ingredients into bowl and use electric mixer to blend.  Store in tightly sealed plastic container.

Note:  The Joint Compound I use is the Pro-Form All Pupose Ready Mix at Walmart.  I bought a 3 lbs containter for less than 5.00.  Makes a ton of "Gesso" and is a great base coat for painting Paper Mache / Clay projects.
