40,000 Years Ago, Cave Dwellers combined various substances with animal fat to make paint, which they used to add pictures and colors to the walls of their crude homes. This of course is The Cave of Lascaux. Red and yellow ochre, hematite, manganese oxide, and charcoal were all employed as color elements. Starting around 3150 B.C., ancient Egyptian painters mixed a base of oil or fat with color elements like ground glass or semiprecious stones, lead, earth, or animal blood. White, black, blue, red, yellow, and green were their hues of choice. During the 1600,

Pilgrims viewed those who painted their house as vain and sacrilegious. As colonies developed, these attitudes changed.

Despite the shift in attitude, the high cost of house paint allowed only the rich to use it at first. This made house painting more of a status symbol than it is today. Early house paint was often homemade. Lime and oyster shells were used to create a whitewash. Red oxide found in iron was used to develop red paint. Vivid greens were made from copper oxide. Early paints were also made from a combination of boiled rice, skim milk, egg whites and coffee. 

Today Green Paint Technology has come a very long way from the Cave man days. Years ago, Eco-Friendly paint was very limited in it's availability of shades. Today companies offer environmentally friendly paint in an extensive range of color and shade options.
