Default Casein Gesso from Sinopia

I happened to pop over Sinopia's website recently, and noticed they are now selling casein gesso. For many years they have offered the raw material for making casein and gesso yourself, but now they are also offering it pre-mixed, which came as quite a pleasant surprise. As some of you may know, it offers the same look and feel as gesso made from rabbit skin glue. The major difference is they claim this gesso has no limited shelf life, possibly due to the oil content.

I've been making my own casein paints and gesso for many years, so I was curious to see what their's looks like and ordered a small sample. As soon as I get it, I'll test it out and let you know what I think. If anyone here has already tried it, let me know.

Here's a link:
