Product Description

Casein is a quick-drying, aqueous medium using a milk-based binding agent, and
is one of the most durable mediums known to man. Nine thousand year old Casein
cave paintings have been discovered in Asia, and later, the medium was used by
Byzantine, Roman and Renaissance artists including the Old Masters. In 1933,
Casein pigments in tubes were developed by Ramon Shiva who relied on the
expertise of the artists who used them to help perfect his high-quality
paints. Today, Jack Richeson and Co., Inc. manufactures Shiva's Casein colors
and is dedicated to bringing back the original quality and formulation of the
pigments. Known for their versatility and array of capabilities, Casein paints
can be used to create a variety of effects from the rich opaques of oil to
thin watercolor washes. Casein paints may be applied to almost any rigid, non-
oily surface such as canvas panel, illustration board, heavy watercolor paper,
plaster, metal, wood, masonite, or canvas, or linen mounted on masonite. And
they can be reworked or layered repeatedly and be used for underpainting.
Because Casein has an exceptional integrity of color and always dries to a
perfect matte finish, it is unexcelled for art reproduction. The velvety matte
finish can also be buffed to a satin sheen or varnished to produce a
resemblance to oils. Over time, Casein pigments become resistant to moisture
and as history has proven, the medium has a durability and permanence which
has easily stood the test of time.
