This is the new work I have been producing for the group exhibition at Artistic License gallery. The work is modelled in clay and bisqued fired, then coated with gesso and painted with thin washes of Casein paint. The paint is allowed to dry and then subsequently more washes applied. You have to take care in applying the washes. The paint will eventually become waterproof after some time. These are my efforts in applying this new medium.
