(kay'seen) 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 & 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.
