January 29, 2010, Newsletter Issue #175: What are Casein Paints?

Tip of the Week

Casein is derived from milk. It is a paint that has been around since the early Egyptians first used it as a form of tempera paint. Casein drives evenly which makes it a favorite for those who paint murals. It also dries to a matte finish and resembles the look of an oil-painted canvas when compared to other types of paints that are water-based.
