If you're wondering what milk paint is, you're not alone, A LOT of people ask what it is. It's the most asked question at the store! Milk Paint is a really cool ancient paint containing five simple ingredients – milk protein (casein), limestone, clay, chalk and natural & non-toxic synthetic pigments.
When absorbed into the surface, Milk Paint will never chip or peel when applied to a raw wood surface. It is suitable for both interior and exterior applications and is naturally mold resistant. Milk paint provides a completely breathable coating and is ideal for painting wood, plaster, drywall and a variety of other surfaces. It is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and contains no VOCs.
With the Milk Paint Bonding Agent you can use Milk Paint on even more surfaces such as previously painted walls, varnished surfaces, ceramic tiles, metal, glass etc. Without the bonding agent, Milk Paint will resist some pre-finished or pre-painted surfaces to achieve an authentic “chippy” look.
Milk Paint is a powder that's mixed with equal parts water, which makes a rich & creamy paint. It dries in 15-20 minutes, can be distressed easily and layers of colours can be created. It such a fun paint to use and it leaves a lovely rich finish to be enjoyed!
