Re: Useful Casein Text

Excellent point David, Casein does indeed have that touch dry feel in minutes and remain curing for up to weeks when mixed with oil. One can even use mostly oil paint and add just enough Casein to that paint to reduce the sheen and glossiness of oil paint. Proportions of Casein to Oil alter the resulting touch dry times and handling qualities. In the above proposed composition, heavily oil, it will remain open and act like oil paint longer but dry with less surface sheen.

Casein may well be the most versatile paint on the planet, able to function like most any other paint, without some of the negatives that are sometimes present in other paints. Itís major failing point is just not being flexible, which restricts it to rigid surfaces, and sometime prone to cracks or chipping.
