Unfortunately after nearly a year of working with it I came out in hives, I didn’t even know what they were at first but I certainly didn’t like having red itchy bumps allover my elbow pits. After a month of trying various remedies I saw the word casein and hives in the same sentence in an online post about supplements for body builders (go google). A light went on, and when I stopped using casein the hives went away.

I had just purchased a substantial quantity of  paint when I made the discovery, so I was fortunate to find a fellow painter who was interested enough to purchase it from me.

So its back to gouache for my opaque work.

I like gouache and it has some wonderful qualities but I miss my casein
