Kreidezeit Vega Wall Paint is an interior paint suitable for vegans that is easy to use. It is nearly odourless, has high diffusion and excellent coverage.
Use Kreidezeit Vega Wall Paint on interior walls and ceilings. Suitable for all structurally-sound, absorbent indoor renders (clay, lime, gypsum and cement), fillers, ingrain wallpaper, pure wallpaper, paper fleece, plasterboard and concrete.
Also suitable for firmly ingrained, matt and absorbent emulsion paints (please always test on a small sample area first.) On wallpaper one coating is often sufficient.
Italian marble powder gives these colours their unobtrusively, harmonic bright white colour, without the use of titanium dioxide.
Soda turns vegetable casein into a protein glue, which is the binder of the paint. The production as a powder paint reduces transport costs and packaging waste, prolongs shelf life, chemical preservation is unnecessary.
The only difference compared to Casein Marble Paint is the binder (plant and animal casein respectively) – the technical characteristics are the same.
- Powder for mixing with water
- Easy to use
- Very open to diffusion
- Excellent opacity
- Natural white due to fine marble powder (without Titanium White)
- Wipe resistant and can be over-coated

- Free of antidegradants
- Free of synthetic resin binders
- Residues are compostable
Apply a base coat to all renders, fillers, levelled drywall, concrete and old emulsion paints with Vega Primer or Casein Primer and leave to dry completely. Do not apply to paper fleece/wallpaper.
Stir in the specified amount of powder into clean, cold water, until the mixture is smooth. Use a powerful drill with agitator. Leave to expand for at least 30 minutes and stir well again before processing.
Adjust paint/water mixture to suit the surface; i.e. a little more water may be required for a particular application.
…if applying with a paint roller:
Mix 1 kg of paint powder with 550 ml of water. Dilute with up to 150 ml of water if necessary.
…if applying with a paint brush:
Mix 1 kg of paint powder with 650 ml of water. Dilute with up to 150 ml of water if necessary.
Application temperature at least 8°C. Stir occasionally during application.
Two coats are typically required for full opacity. Do not attempt to cover dark and high-contrast substrates with only one coat of paint; excessive application thicknesses can lead to damage to the coating! Allow previous coats to dry completely before applying another coat.
During the application, the wet paint is translucent; it only becomes fully opaque once drying is complete.
…by paint brush:
Apply evenly with a facade brush in a criss-cross pattern.
Apply the paint liberally and evenly in a criss-cross pattern. Then immediately use a roller in a single direction, without applying any further paint.
The Paint must be applied on the same day as mixing. Do not use paint that smells bad or rotten under any circumstances: danger of prolonged odour problems even after drying!
Approximately 7 m² per kg per coat.
