Charcoal and distemper paint on paper

Distemper is an ancient form of paint made of water, chalk and pigment, bound with either an animal glue or casein, a resin that comes from solidified milk (see cheese making).  Being inexpensive, distemper is often used in elementary schools and familiar to many as a chalky paint your teacher poured from a wide-mouthed plastic jar.
