Details

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.

    Good quality and the real deal

    Works very well and can be combined easily with other colors to get just the right shade. Requires two to three coats for complete coverage and a topcoat for protection. Sand between coats, an application of BLO on top followed by some wax and it looks great. Need higher water resistance, use some wiping varnish instead. Layer colors to get a really nice "distressed" look as it wears away from sharp edges, dings and dents.
