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, Buttermilk :

    This stuff is awesonme! I have painted furniture that I've made for my children and always get compliments on the finish. The instructions are good and have helpful hints. A word of caution on milk paint: If it doesn't some in a powder form, IT AIN'T MILK PAINT. Milk paint is lime-based, so as soon as you mix it with water, there's a chemical reaction that takes place and starts to harden the paint. That's why you only mix as much paint as you will use in a day. Shame on those General guys trying to sell you "milk paint in can." You're just better off diluting your cheap latex paint with water.

    Comments about Old Fashioned Milk Paint, Buttermilk :

    Mixing the powder with water was so easy using a kitchen hand mixer. The texture was about like cake batter and it went on like cake batter! But it brushed out beautifully and gave a very light, almost unpainted look to the wood. I remember milk paint used on cabinets when I was a girl and the wonderful smell in the kitchens on hot summer's day. I'm hoping for that bit of nostalgia to return.
