I am curious about your glue thing though, how did you come across this as sizing? how about permanence? ...</td></tr></table><span id='postcolor'>

I tried glue sizing after starting to oil paint and reading the literature on materials used in that medium. It is the traditional size for canvas through the ages and so I would consider it quite permanent.

In terms of permanence, hardening in formaldehyde also adds to the longevity of prints on paper. Keeps those critters from chomping on the paper.
