The Original Milk Paint ~ Authentic, Durable, Beautiful, Safe

Milk Paint is an ancient organic paint made using basic, natural ingredients; milk protein (casein), lime, clay, and earth pigments such as ochre, umber, iron oxide, lampblack. It makes the most colour-durable finish available ~ it goes on like a stain, but dries like a paint, and will never fade. Best of all it is totally environmentally friendly, non-toxic, odourless and food safe, containing no chemicals, VOCS, preservatives, fungicides or petroleum derivatives. It comes in powder form for mixing with water. There are twenty base historic colours, in classic colonial hues, but many more can be easily achieved, by mixing colours together, or diluting with Snow White.

Milk Paint has always been loved by woodworkers, furniture restorers, decorative artists and crafters, but in recent years Milk Paint has been discovered by upcyclers to achieve the rich colours and matt, chalky finish desired in furniture makeover projects.
