Distemper paint is also known as cement paint as it can be applied directly on cement walls without any other coating. Distemper is regarded as the early form of whitewash, also used for artistic painting, usually made from powdered chalk or lime. The binder used in distemper may be glues of vegetable or animal origin. 

Distemper is better than whitewash but inferior to oil paints and emulsion paints. It gives elegant, smooth, attractive, and slightly uneven look. Soft distemper is not abrasion resistant and may include binders such as chalk, ground pigments, and animal glue. Hard distemper is stronger and wear-resistant and can include casein or linseed oil as binders. It has a distinctive smell, and does not dry or crack in sunlight.

Three or more coats have to be applied to give a smooth finish.

Distemper paint has the ability to breathe; hence, it allows underlying moisture to escape from the surface and away from the masonry, unlike oil paints. It is an ideal paint that sets well on the plastered wall. Other paints such as oil-based paints can react with the high lime content of the traditional plaster. It causes the paint to go viscous. It can also easily react with alkalis to form a soapy mess.
