Rye, not only for food

I picked up a tid bit today while watching a documentary.  A very traditional paint used in scandinavian countries combines mineral color (hardware store) like iron red with water and rye flour.  Said to last 50 years.   I think it familiar with "Barn Red" in color. 

I knew that sticky rye flour was good for some major jobs.
