Boy,I haven't been on WetCanvas in a good while so hello to all. Apologies in advance I have a rotten space bar on laptop
On casein paints and their application.
I made a Jerry's order of casein paints, 2 reds, 2 blues , 2 yellows black and white...plus a bottle of emulsion. I have watched up on James Gurney vids and several others but haven't heard much mention on one or two topics.
Can casein be spritzed with water while working when I get slowed down and should it be? Is it better to use some emulsion with water for thinning the consistency or with emulsion added for that as well. I had read off a user review on Blick site that using the emulsion works well for fine detail work rather than water alone.
Any help/thoughts on this area will be appreciated as I'd like to begin to try to have something going before holiday season if poss.
Plus thanks for all those showing their works...its an inspiration to me.
Darn it, just read there is a thread for these questions!!!
