Casein Paint

Casein paint is made from milk casein(milk protein).  It’s dries quickly leaving a moderately water-resistant, matte surface.  The Art Store has Richeson/Shiva Casein Paint.  We’ve sold casein to be used in restoration of color and design on ancient pottery pieces.  With canvas being too flexible of a surface, casein paint is best used on rigid or firm surfaces.  The Art Store carries a number of boards appropriate for this medium, we’d be happy to help you choose the right surface for you.
