The classic egg white ( glaire) paint is essentially whipped egg white with yolk removed. After settling for 12 hours, I scrape off the crusty material on top of the glaire. it is essentially trapped air bubbles.
I get 25 g , or so, of egg white from a large egg.
I also can add a small amount of aq. guar gum to thicken the base paint , if desired.
The glaire paint was popular in Europe from about the 5th century C.E. It was used with manuscripts.
I like working with this very fast base which is great for small artwork activity.
One approach is to use it with watercolors in pans. I wet the color with water , clean brush and add glaire to the brush. Remove some watercolor and apply to paper, poster-board or wood. it dries quickly. I then clean the watercolor in the pan with a brush with water. You don't want the watercolor in the pan to harden. The gum arabic binder in the watercolor mixes with the glaire with no problems.
Please be aware that many people have allergic repsonses to egg white due to the albumen proteins in the glaire.
"Outline of a Woman"- by Bard ( AI/Google)
A woman's form, a silhouette Against the setting sun, Her beauty like a candlelight That warms my heart and soul.
I long to touch her, to hold her, To feel her skin against my own, But she is just an outline, A shadow on the wall.

I use a 1:2 mol ratio of choline chloride: urea. I heat the mixture for 30 minutes at 80 deg C until a clear liquid forms. Cool to room temperature before use.
I place a few drops of dye ( yellow food coloring is shown here) in 2 ml. of the DES. I then add 1-2 ml of boiled linseed oil and stir well.
It seems the linseed oil is forming a micro-dispersion in the DES/dye. it applies beautifully to poster-board or wood. It will dry over 30 minutes to the touch. No odor. The DES/linseed oil will not change over 2-3 days at 20 deg in an open beaker.

Milk ( casein) paint can be kept refrigerated for one week before use in artwork.
i place 35 g milk powder ( 80% casein) in 125 ml. water. I warm in microwave in 30 second intervals until uniform. I add 35-40 g "air dry" clay and shake for 30 minutes. I then place it in a blender for 4 -5 minutes . I pour the base paint in silicone molds or ice-cube trays and store in the freezer (-15 deg C/ -5 deg F) overnight. I then pop the solids out and keep them in a jiffy bag in the freezer.
When i want to make a paint: I place a unit in the refrigerator overnight to begin to thaw out. The next day, I bring to ambient temperature and stir with dye/ pigment for painting.
YOU can store the units for 1-2 years in the freezer!
There once was an AI named Art, Whose taste was quite sharp and quite tart. It could paint like a master, Or create a new taste, But it never could match the human heart.- Bard ( AI/Google)
