Product Information:

The deep rich colors of Milk Paint authentically reflect those colors found on existing antique furniture and buildings. Milk Paint is made in small batches, using earth pigments. Modern paints cannot compare with the colors and the texture of the finish for achieving the “old” or “country look” of Colonial or Shaker furniture and interiors. And, like the paints used hundreds of years ago, the colors in Milk Paint will not fade. Milk Paint will produce an antique uneven matte surface when first applied. You can also create a semi-gloss look by simply burnishing the painted surface. Milk Paint is packaged in a dry powder form allowing you to control the thickness of the paint for use as either a wash/stain, full cover coat, or for stenciling. As in originally produced home-made milk paint, this product uses milk protein, lime, clay, and earth pigments such as ochre, umber, iron oxide, lampblack, etc. Milk Paint is environmentally safe and non-toxic when dry. It's safe for children's furniture and toys, and can also be used for interiors of homes of people who are allergic to modern paints. Packaged as a powder, you add water to make one pint of liquid.

    Comments about Old Fashioned Milk Paint, Marigold Yellow :

    I wanted to make 17 wood boxes as Christmas gifts. My trial boxes took a lot of time to sand to 220 grit, apply polyurethane, sand to 220, poly, sand to 220, and poly. I decided to try one coat of milk paint with no subsequent sanding. The results were great, and the boxes are very colorful. It takes a little practice to add the right amount of water to the powder. Too much and you end up applying two coats, too little and the paint does not cover as much.

    Comments about Old Fashioned Milk Paint, Marigold Yellow :

    I wanted to make some unique wood boxes as Christmas 2011 gifts to family members. I wanted to try using old-fashioned milk paint to reduce the finishing time required for polyurethane and use it as a interesting talking point. It worked fine for the small amounts I need to paint my boxes.
