Actually, Blood and Milk based Paints were still common in the 19th Century
in most areas where people made their own things.
These, and Egg Yoke based Paints are the 'old' traditions, I am certain,
dating back well before the last Ice Age, to which one of course added such
pigments or other ingredients as one saw fit.
Very durable if made right...
