Toulouse-Lautrec and Vuillard used tan card stock for oil painting. This thin, pH neutral, resin-sized card stock is far more permanent than that used by the famous painters of past centuries. Great under-color for oil, acrylic, gouache, casein or pastel paintings.
Many artists paint directly on them, but for most oil techniques, we recommend a coat of Golden GAC-100 Multi-Purpose Acrylic Polymer (see video below) as a sizing to reduce absorbency while retaining the beautiful color.
Alternatively, clear gesso, acrylic gel medium, a thin coat of linseed oil or Galkyd will also work well. You can also use regular gesso or Gamblin Oil Ground, but you would loose the pleasant warm undercolor.
Cartón is very lightweight and compact, good for use while traveling. Use Miracle Muck to mount your finished paintings on Museum Board or Gatorfoam to make them more substantial.
