Thank you all for your detail and thoughtfulness about
methyl cellulose, I appreciate it. My interpretation of
Frank's response is that the methyl cellulose mixed with
acrylic paint could move when water is introduced, even
though the acrylic paint is dry, and that it is important to
use purified water in order to avoid acidity. Is that right?
