Various types of aluminum sheets are available. Which material is best suited as a foundation for oil painting?
I'm thinking about painting directly on a sandblasted surface (the first layer with titanium white (linseed)).
Move this whole section up, swapping places with the section above it.
I don't have a definitive answer, but here are two references that may help: A chart with comparative ratings for various applications, including surface treatment: https://www.normalien.de/pdf/en/Content_Alu14_E.pdfAn overview of technique for preparing aircraft aluminum to receive paint: http://www.zenithair.com/kit-data/ra/paint2.htmlHope this helps!
Sorry for the delay. Dr. Rosie Grayburn at the Scientific Research Laboratory located at Winterthur Museum has suggested the following:
"I wouldn’t recommend anything anodized as a support as this potentially can give rise to cracks in the paint/ground later on. AlSi alloys are used for casting, so probably not a good candidate. Apart from that I would suggest any of the following that fit these categories:
- Alloyed with magnesium will have good corrosion resistance
- Alloyed with zinc will be very hard, copper less so but still very tough."If it were me I would opt to go with Mg over Zinc in this case. It probably will not be an issue, but if there is the SLIGHTEST chance of Zn ions somehow leaching into your ground/paint why risk that as we now know there are so many problems associated with zinc.
Thank you very much for the answers.
I would be curious to know if oil paint applied to panels composed
of AlMgMn0 dried quicker than paint applied to AlMg, since Mn can be such an
effective siccative. It has long been stated that linseed oil on lead sheets or
in lead trays oxidizes at a far faster rate. This is a separate issue from
which is more appropriate as a substrate for oil painting. However, I would
avoid using a metal panel containing Zn for the caution stated above and for
any possible anti-oxidative effects.
