Casein Disemper

Leaning slightly cooler than our Yellow Based Neutrals, yet not quite as green as our Traditional Neutrals, Light Stone adds subtle intrigue to any scheme. Despite its complexity, it is wonderfully easy to live with, especially when paired with a lighter neutral on woodwork for a classic combination.

This strengthened distemper is for use on low-traffic walls and ceilings. Casein Distemper offers a very flat matt finish with a breathable, permeable structure.

Key features

Very matt  

Very matt  

Casein Distemper offers a very flat matt finish with a breathable, permeable structure. 2% sheen. 

Our deeper, richer colours are available in a range of finishes with different sheen levels. Sheen always affects how colour appears: the same shade in gloss can look very different in matt. That’s why we specifically adjust the formula for every finish to make sure the balance is exactly right and you get the colour you were expecting. Our colours and finishes are formulated together, so you simply can’t have one without the other. 

For interior lime-based plaster

A traditional specialist finish formulated for use on interior lime-based plaster walls and ceilings in low traffic areas.

Highly breathable

Highly breathable

Carefully sourced casein resins with unique open polymers let moisture pass through this flat matt finish, allowing interior plaster walls and ceiling to breathe. 

100% water based

100% water based

We’re proud to have been the first in the industry to transition to a completely water based range back in 2010. As a result, all of our finishes, including our tough trim and floor paints, are made with a low-odour, low-VOC water base that scores A+ for indoor air quality. 
 
Plus, our water based paint doesn’t discolour over time like solvent based paints can. So your spaces stay beautiful for longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and graceful I used Light Stone in my entry hall and couldn't be happier with it. I have Gervase Yellow on a stairway wall which feeds into the entry hall. Didn't want the intensity of Gervase Yellow in the entry but the spaces needed to flow together. Light Stone is the perfect solution. From there, on we flow to Calke Green in the living room. I am so happy with my choice of Light Stone. Getting the entry hall color perfected so as to connect the two areas while still excelling in and of itself has been a goal for a long time. Finally, Light Stone accomplished it! It's an utterly beautiful and graceful shade.
