Schmincke | Casein binder — borax emulsified, 500ml

Casein is the main protein found in milk. By adding another substance - ammonia, borax or slaked lime - you get one of the oldest and most stable binders. You call this process unlocking. Think of it as a kind of two-component glue.

This ready-to-use variant from Schmincke is emulsified with borax. Dilute it with water and mix your pigments with it - that's it! You can also use it as an ingredient of a tempera paint. Experiment with it. No other binder does pigments such justice, with all their characteristics and differences.

The product specifications of the Casein binder from Schmincke:

  • borax emulsified
  • dilutable with water
  • remains good for a long time
  • can be used on non-flexible substrates
  • less suitable for flexible substrates
  • dries up wiping resistant, but remains water-soluble

Basic use information:

  • for a standard casein tempera binder — please mix 10 parts of casein binding medium with 1 part stand linseed oil (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).

TIP! — You can also add it to acrylic colours to improve adhesion on smooth grounds

Price per bottle ( 500 ml).
