We have started trying out alternative paints.  First up is casein paint.  This is a highly breathable paint free from VOCs, acrylics, oils and solvents.  It comes as a powder which you mix with water.  Two coats are recommended and it is more expensive than limewash per coat but less expensive than earthborne clay paint.  The paint produced a nice mat finish but it did not fill into the cracks in the lime plaster, but sat on top similar to a more conventional paint.
