          That is a very good looking piece. Especially like how the eyes came out.
          Well done.

                I use Golden's Absorbent Ground in place of gesso (which I absolutely hate!) and to cover discolorations (repairs, wood flaws, etc.). Painting on Absorbent Ground is like painting on watercolor paper.

                I like this material because, unlike gesso, it does not leave a "slick" surface. I paint with watercolor and am a wildlife carver. Generally, I do not want sharp lines of division between colors and I want a "soft, matte" look to the fur or feathers. If I want a "hard, shiny" finish such as beaks or claws, I will coat these areas after painting with varnish or such.

                I am planning to use it on this bust to cover the mane and, depending on the color I desire, I will use it to cover the body also.
