Thanks, Regina, who knows...longevity may be an issue??

Something about this that captures me...it's layered maybe that's it.????

Regina Valluzzi replied:

Hiya, I think that the natural texture of the primed surface gets punched up a bit in the mini pieces. They're tiny and the image you see is either life size or even magnified on the scanner. Sort of like looking at a painting with a magnifier - and you see the whole thing thru the lens. So all of the textures and tiny peculiarities of pigment become much more of a focus, and there are more "layers" than the 3 or 4 layers of human painting. It's oil on clay with particulates in there for tooth.

Regina Valluzzi replied:

Thanks for popping in Charlie, and for commenting. Do you gesso your own surfaces? I've started trying out this absorbent gesso - absorbent surfaces seem to give lichen-like patterns. I noticed that the (very pricey) gesso looks, feels, and smells exactly like quick-dry paintable spackle from the hardware store. might be worth an experiment or two.
