Hi paul I find it easier to buy the power and start from there.
Although a lot of people think casein was used a lot, it had a short life in the painting trade. In the A E hurst book and the Practical painter both around 1945 -1950 depending on what edition the product is mentioned. But both seem to favour oil bound distemper.
In earlier publications ie Practical Painter by Paul Hasluck 1909 and house painting by E A Davidson 1911 neither get a mention. Both were trade bibles at the time. And I find it strange neither are mentioned. It is not mentioned in the crace papers or the journal of decorative arts. Again both bibles. There are references to it in early art books and small distemper projects.
We tried it graining on several doors in the Royal Palace of Stirling on plaster. These were faux doors with success purely because of the lime content in the plaster and it worked well.
Personally I think F and B and Rose of Jerico are jumping on the band wagon of traditional paints.
The most used, apart from distemper paint around the turn of the century, was a product called Duresco. This was a silicate paint similar to Keim and died out in the 1950s. In 1893 enough was made to cover 4 million m2 and in trade journals of the period they wrote poems about the stuff. It was produced by the silicate paint company.
