Re: "OIL OF EGG"



Grant,
A quick look through the artist's handbooks of Doerner, Mayer, and Wehlte
did not turn up anything about extracting "Oil of Egg" using ether +
acetone, but Massey's _Formulas for Painters_ does contain eleven recipes
for preparing egg tempera emulsions, some of which are oil based.

Could you provide some more information?

Jack
