Old Fashioned Milk Paint is water-based, solvent-free, fade resistant, quick drying, colors can be blended, suitable for porous surfaces.
As in originally produced home-made milk paint, we use milk protein, lime, clay, and earth pigments such as ochre, umber, iron oxide, lampblack, etc. The lime is alkaline but becomes totally inert when mixed with the slightly acid milk. We use no lead, no chemical preservatives, no fungicides. Milk paint contains no hydrocarbons or any other petroleum derivatives.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLYOur 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 childrens 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 a vintage look on furniture and interiors. And, like the paints used hundreds of years ago, the colors in our Milk Paint will not fade.
