Artist: David S. Soriano. (Bradford, PA., USA)

"Night On The Town"/ Developmental Mediums

Acrylic, milk paint and watercolor gels.
The green color is delivered by an interesting unstable emulsion consisting of milk paint, green watercolor, halloystite (clay family) , dammar resin in turpentine and linseed oil. it is fast-drying and turns the 140 lb. bristol foundation into a thick parchment. The clay amount will be increased to generate a stucco surface.

Evonik Pigment Dispersant

The modified polyacrylic dispersant that is effective with pigments in paint formulation.
Evonik Industries

"Milk Paint Formulation"

I use: milk powder, commercial watercolors, kaolin clay group and dispersant along with some buffer ( PH=10).  A trace of celite (diatomaceous earth) is added which minimizes bubbling. A smooth delivery from the brush and fast-drying. The only synthetic used is a few drops of a water-soluble modified polyacrylic which effectively disperses the pigment particles.

"The Night Call"/ Painting

Milk paint/ acrylics and milk paint on 9" x11" bristol.

Art's Potential

You probably are deceived by the frequent simplicity
Created by the use of trickery
Daunted by occasional complexity
Joyful of its potential
Its capacity
To convey
Art-  D.S.S.
