This tried and tested recipe works great and should last a while on many surfaces. Here are some other helpful tips:

  • You can conceal a wide brush in range of containers that look quite typical. 😉
  • Though we haven’t had the need, some folks recommend carrying a sharp blade to score (cut lots of random lines) your paste-up after its slightly set. Those who recommend this say it makes your art a lot harder to remove.
