Casein paint is a traditional, ecological diffuse adhesive paint suitable for dry interior locations, mostly for walls and ceilings. Casein paint can be used for mineral surfaces such as plasters, but also for wood, wood fiber boards, paper, cardboard and dry wall. Painting with casein paint is enjoyable, as its natural odor is pleasant, it is fast-drying and water-soluble, tools and stains can also be washed off using water. The result is a velvety matte surface that feels nice to the touch & easy to repaint.
Casein paint is environmentally friendly & economical solution for surfaces that don’t need regular washing with water. (for indoor surfaces that do need more washable finish we recommend Allbäck Linus or Uula iNTO series linseed-emulsion paints)
