Finally starting on them. Mixed of a Qt of Rabbit Skin Glue. Got hold of some good % 100 cotton. Now a lot of these screens are wrapped with the cotton. So to repair the foot areas of this 4 panel screen that had years of moister damage and the smooth coat was deteriorated to powder so most of the foot area needed full warping. A couple panels only needed sections done.
1st after cleaning and repairing missing areas I brushed on the HOT Rabbit skin glue and let site a couple minutes and them stretched the cotton over the the area. After that dries good a few coats of gesso and then the glazed Lacquering coats. I have a slight idea how many it will take , somewhere between 7-12.
By then I should have the cut stones in to start shaping to fit the missing pieces.

I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
