I wish I could give credit to where I saw this but I dont remember. It was a guy artist used a refillable soap bottle to store Gesso in. He squeazed the gesso right out of the bottle onto his art.
I filled up all my soap containers. I even bought a large one for the bathroom to fill up faster. He he its a Christmas polar bear. I think I will keep it... doesnt run out of soap as fast!
I washed the bottle in the dish washer. Advice... dont do that. It warps the bottle even on the top shelve.
So I had to get another bottle and fill up all the soal containers again and again.
This time I just rinsed and rinsed and rinsed it out till it didnt bubble any more.
Some spilled on the table, some got on my clothes some got on the carpet a lot got on my hands.
Apparrently my gesso was very clumpy at the bottom so I had to role my sleeves up (I was wearing short sleeves) and scoop out the mess.
As you can see the soap bottle is much smaller then the gesso bottle. I had used a great deal of it already.
The first thing I cleaned off was my hands. I mean come on I couldnt clean anything else if my hands were covered in gesso right?
Then my shirt.
The dog licked the gesso off the carpet. Is Gesso toxic? Then I did scrub the gesso off the carpet too.
Then I wiped it off the table and the bottle.
Its easier to shake so maybe it will mix better.
