Experiment of wallpaper mix acrylic and water
The next experiment I carried out was the mixture of wallpaper mix, acrylic glue and water. This combination was suggested by Gwyneth – textiles technician– as this is something that doesn’t set, staying liquefied for a long period of time. This was successful in that after 24 hours the solution did not set, neither did it separate, however this solution was very dense, giving it a gloopy appearance, which to me did not represent milk.
As a result, to improve this experiment for next time, I am going to water down the solution. Hopefully this will allow it to keep it properties that it has at the moment, but make the solution thinner and more milk like.
