Kreidezeit Distemper Paint is a traditional chalk and marble based interior paint. It creates a matt finish, is almost odourless and exceptionally breathable.
Distemper paint was the standard choice for interior paint in many parts of Europe until the 1960’s. Due to the wide spread usage of ready-to-use synthetic dispersion paint, distemper paint vanished from the market despite its many advantages. Kreidezeit have managed to preserve this treasure!
You can use it for almost all interior wall construction materials: all plasters, wallpaper, stone, dry wall. But is particularly suited to ceilings because of its evenly cloth-matt look.
Use distemper paint on to stucco plasters, cornices and decorative finishes as it can easily be removed with water. This would prevent the fine detailing from being clogged by many layers of paint which can damage the plaster when removed.
Because of their simple emission-free and odourless ingredients many of Kreidezeit’s range of natural paints are better for people suffering from allergies or chemical sensitivity.
Despite all these advantages there is one disadvantage for some applications: distemper paint is bound weakly and not waterproof – so cannot be over-painted with other types of paint (it need to be washed off).
