The canvas for the custom-made work was ready, so I applied the Dosa on it today. Dosa is like a coating agent that is applied to a base material such as Japanese paper or cloth so that Japanese painting materials can be firmly fixed to the base material. The ingredients are alum, animal glue and water. Alum cross-links the protein, which is the main component of animal glue, to form a film on the base material. It’s been a long time to do this process since I almost used wooden board as base material recently.
