Size is a glue used as preparation of the ground before priming. The glue is usually made from animal products but can be any fairly weak glue. It is used in art mainly for filling the porous surface of wooden panels or canvases to provide a suitable foundation for the priming. Size is also sometimes used as a painting medium and paint mixed with it is called distemper. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
