An authentic finish, if you are either restoring original Colonial or Shaker furniture, making reproductions, or striving for an interior design look that is both authentic and beautiful. Milk Paint is now gaining an even wider usage because it contains only ingredients that are all-natural and will not harm the environment. This is truly a "green paint".
Old Fashioned Milk Paint is environmentally safe and non-toxic. There is a slight milky odor when it is applied, but it is completely odorless when dry. The paint is safe for children's furniture and toys, and can also be used for interiors of homes of people who are allergic to modern paints.
The deep rich colors of Milk Paint authentically reflect those colors found on existing antique furniture and buildings. Our 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 our Milk Paint will not fade.
Many variations in color can be easily achieved. 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. When used with our Antique Crackle, Milk Paint will result in a textured surface with a "time worn" look to accent country interiors.
We package Milk Paint 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. Also, colors can be mixed to form various other hues and tones. For example: 6 tablespoons of Pitch Black to one pint of Lexington Green makes a wonderful dark green for Windsor chairs.
Best for porous surfaces such as bare wood and raw masonry. (Adding Extra-Bond into first coat will help adhesion to most clean, sound non-porous surfaces.) Packaged as a powder, you add water to make a pint, quart, or gallon.
We are a family owned business and earth friendly by repurposing, salvaging and up-cycling one of a kind pieces, while being customer centric and providing anyone with the tools to create beautiful things.
