Greg Sigworth Posted January 30 Report Share Posted January 30 I wanted to experiment with this ground and possibly use it on the current violin I am making. Being a bit lazy I did not want to spend a week making the Gypsum using Mr. Hargrave's method. There are many sources which sell a powered gypsum, ie. gardening fertilizer, and can any of these work or should I just bite the bullet I do the work described by Mr. Hargrave? There is a local artist's store which sells an Italian Gesso kit including white powder, I think gypsum, and rabbit glue as the binder. I am going to see what the white powder is made of. I have used a number of times the ground described by Greg Alf in Trade Secrets #1 and I would like to try Hargrave's method. Any advice will be helpful. Thank you.
