Boafamily and Artist_By_Accident - Thank you! If you are interested, you can see a few more examples of my work at this link (http://chuckgrieb.com/
) and I'll be sure to post more as I make 'em! For those interested, I also have some fairly extensive process posts you can find on my blog, one of which can be found here:
I've actually found Casein to be very forgiving. The more I work with it, the more flexible I find it to be.
I do of wish there were more options in so far as ready to use resources as the color selection from Richeson is limited and I can relate to some of the varied quality concerns I've read others have experienced (thick/dried out paint with some tubes/colors and very watery paint from others). I have tried mixing watercolors and gouache with Casein Emulsion to expand my palette with mixed results. I may try making some of my own Casein paint and see how that changes my perspective.
