After years of trying to find a linoleum product that would be easier for artists of all ages to carve on, we have developed an innovative material that seems to be the answer and it can be worked mounted or unmounted. Working with traditional lino tools, it cuts like butter. It leaves beautiful, clean edges and works well on curves and tight corners. It is really an answer for those who have wrestled with tough or hard linoleum in the past. One of its real advantages is that it has a long shelf life - as much as ten times longer than that of traditional lino - so it will stay workable for much longer.
• Cuts like butter
• Creates clean edges
• Has a long shelf life
• Unmounted is carvable on both sides

Casein Emulsion is the pure casein binder that is used to make casein paints. As such, it can be mixed with casein paints to improve the brushability or flow without altering any other characteristics. When using casein paints for very thin washes, mix one part Casein Emulsion with five parts water to ensure color brilliance and to maintain adhesion and integrity of the paint film.
