Casein Paint Demonstration Press Release

June 17, 2010

It’s official! In connection with the current gallery exhibition of my artwork at ARTSPACE in Round Rock TX, next week I will be demonstrating how I make my own casein paint. Here is the official press release issued about the event:

Who knew you could make your own paint?

Purpose:
This demonstration will be an introduction into the procedures artists can use to make their own casein paints. There will be a presentation of necessary tools and supplies, as well as a thorough description of how they are used, and where they may be purchased locally or online. Finished paintings will be on display, and a small selection of paint samples will be available for purchase.
 
History:  
Although the paint medium of casein has an ancient history, not many people are familiar with it, even artists. It is amazingly simple to use and to make into a professional grade medium that is as stable as any other and more versatile with its multiple applications. The source of this paint binder is milk, one of the most easily accessible materials on the planet. Using a few simple tools and supplies the artist is able to make their own paints that can rival the quality of any available on the market, safely and economically.

About the Artist:
David Blaine Clemons has been a practicing professional artist for more than 30 years. He has an exhibition history in galleries across the country, and has been a commercial artist in print, film, theatre, and video games. He invites artists of all skill levels to come and discover the simplicity found in the powerful painting medium of casein.

  2. Well, the demo tonight went smoothly. No spills or explosions, and no hecklers. It was a small crowd but I think they enjoyed it, as did I.
