Started making casein with borax and began with dry pigments but switched pretty quick to pigment dispersions from guerra paints. I am loving this stuff. I've tried various supports, including panel with casein gesso, but what I like best so far is watercolor paper, since the paint really sits on top and that makes it pretty vibrant. Plus for me it is less likely to lift. I also messed around a bit with adding casein binder to oil paints, and wow--the paint dried almost immediately, faster than acrylic, and also became matte. I might play around more with that later, but meanwhile I am enjoying learning about casein binder + pigments dispersions on 140# CP paper. Using a different medium is giving me permission to change my style, make it more abstract. This is my most recent, finished this morning, "Forest on the Edge," 18 x 24". Did a lot more glazing here.
