Did anyone else know that Gesso could MOLD?????????
I like to think that I’m a pretty tough chick… I’ve fearlessly faced the diarrhea of a 120+ lb Akita just this month and did not gag:
(though I did squeal like a sissy girl when I got it on my hand cleaning up)
I’ve dealt with snakes in my garage door:
and all manner of cat nonsense (from snot to runny poo) BUT WHEN FACED WITH MOLDY GESSO I ABOUT LOST MY COOL COMPLETELY!!!
I really had NO idea that Gesso could mold… why don’t they tell you this?
As I went innocently to my Garden Book to create some lovely Mandrake underpaintings & layouts, I was met with the foulest speckly SSSSSSSSSlime! UUugh! I’ve been violated! And I don’t know if my humble studio will recover — betrayed by my allies, my art supplies!! And where does it end? Does paint mold? Or glue? This opens a whole new horizon of awful. I knew sometimes fluids dry up — but I guard against that with tight seals, plastic bagging, and simply USE-ing my stuff before the air has its way — but MOLD??? I’m completely revealed as a big SISSY! *horrors* I feel like Garfield looking at an empty lasagna pan… or worse… a MOLDY one!
I wanna be sedated…
