    Thanks for your comment and info. BTW, this was an old video and I have been using silicone film paper for dry mounting for three years. Please see my other videos on dry mounting with silicone paper. Thanks!

    Flower is cellulose and is a VERY bad substance for conservation of old scrolls. Especially in himid cointries, cellulose attracts moulds and insects. One better uses a BEVA 371 film as a glue (NOT the paste with tolene…).

    I just started watching your videos today – the’re great, and super helpful. I only found it because I was trying look up how to dye edible rice paper, I didnt find that but I was glad to find this. I think I want to try sumi-e on rice paper because of it. Thanks – these are fantastic!

    You need to cover the backing paper with at least two layers of newspaper. Change the newspaper when it gets wet.

    The consistancy …
    The consistancy could be thicker than you need during cooking with hot water. You may add more cold water to dilute it before using.

    I made the paste twice so far. I’m not sure if I added enough hot water because the colour didn’t change as you describe. I stopped adding hot water when I reached the maximum volume you recommend. Should I be bold and add more?

    Thanks so much for this video. I purchased the 2 brushes: the soft for getting rid of the bubbles, and the harder brush for pressing the backing paper on to the painting. When I used the hard brush, I damaged the backing paper. Was I pressing too hard?

    yeah i think you use the wrong flour cuz there are a varieties of wheat flour… whole wheat flour has a brawish color, maybe it caused your painting to have brown spots…try the white kind and see if it helps.

    Hope my comment is not too late !!!

    I don’t know what I did wrong. I used whole wheat flour and there are little brown seeds all over the painting. Did I use the wrong flour? Please help me out

    No, it is an old traditional method. Alum is also used as a size to make raw Xuan paper(Sheng-Xuan) into a no-absorbent Xuan(Shu-Xuan) for elaborated style of Chinese painting.

    I’ve never heard of using Alum in the mounting paste. Is this a recent method? I actually boil the flour/water mixture in a pot on the stove. Thanks for posting!
