Binders/ resins


Casein binding medium

dries water-soluble


Binder for own production of casein colours and casein-tempera. Dilutable with water; dries to a wiping resistant film, but remains water-soluble.

Thinner: Water


    • Shake well before use.
    • For a standard casein tempera binder please mix 10 parts of casein binding medium with 1 part stand linseed oil, 50005 (per volume).
    • For an oil-rich casein tempera the amount of casein binding medium to stand linseed oil can be raised up to 10 : 3 (per volume).
    • For a small-oil-volume casein tempera please add 1 part of a resin-solution to 10 parts of the standard casein tempera binder (per volume). Suitable resin solutions are 1 : 3 dilutions of venetian turpentine resin 50073 or dammar in pieces 50093 in oil of turpentine 50024 / 50102 (per weight).
    • The mixing ratio of binder to pigment very much depends on the type of dyestuff. Our recommendation: Start off with the same amount of binder and pigment, than add binder or pigment until the required consistency. The dried streaks of paint should have a smooth surface and do not come off when rubbed with the dry heel of the hand. The self-mixed colours can be diluted with tree time the amount of water if necessary.
    • The self-mixed tempera binders and the self-grinded tempera colours are intended to be used as soon as possible and should only be stored in screw-top jars for a few days at a cool place.
    • Please clean working tools as soon as possible with water or water and soap.
    • Close immediately after use.
    • Store in a cool and dry place.
    • The pure casein binding medium is allowed to get freeze – optimally in small portions – to rise its storage life.
    • Individual pre-tests are required.
