Mr. Charles Thibeau of the American city of Groton, Massachusetts, began experiments in 1974 to reproduce the original formula of organic colour powder based on cow's milk protein. American colonists used skim milk or buttermilk, but Mr. Charles Thibeau decided to use milk protein in powder form so that the natural ingredients of the dye could be stored for a long time and easily mixed with water. The oldest surfaces on Earth were painted with milk-based paint. Cave drawings and paintings made 8000 years ago, even 20,000 years ago, are made with a simple mixture of milk, lime and earth pigments. The original formula for milk paint was so easy to make and use, and for thousands of years, it has been a significant form of decoration all over the world. The colours on the walls painted in Denderas, although exhibited in the open for centuries, are as beautiful today as they were 2000 years ago.
The traditional organic milk paint was devised in 1974 in Groton, Massachusetts, USA. Our warehouse is located in Rijeka, Croatia.
