Old Fashioned Milk Paint is a re-creation of the ancient Milk Paint formula used for centuries before the sale of commercially made paints. It is an authentic finish for use in the restoration of antiques or in the reproduction of antique furniture. It comes in rich colors that are durable and do not fade.
Also, since real Milk Paint is made from elements that pre-date the use of petrochemicals and other toxic bases and solvents, it is biodegradable, non-toxic, and odor-free when dry.
Milk Paint is preferred by custom furniture builders, interior designers, artists, craftsmen, do-it-yourselfers, and those who are sensitive to the need to protect the environment.
Applications: Milk Paint is used to achieve an authentic "old look" for furniture, floors, cupboards, woodwork, walls, signs, toys, and stenciling. It penetrates into all clean, porous (unfinished) surfaces. Mixed with our Extra-Bond, it will also adhere to just about any non-porous surface. With a topcoat finish of Clear Coat, to seal the painted surface, it can be used for furniture subject to fingerprints and spills. For surfaces expected to receive heavier wear, we recommend using a heavy-duty topcoat. An oil or solvent-based sealer is recommended for kitchen cabinets as acrylics may not protect against certain kitchen oils such as grease splatters and olive oil spills.
Milk Paint is used by artists and craftsmen to create decorative results that cannot be achieved with other paints. The dead flat, uneven, grainy look is quite distinctive. Milk Paint is also used for interior walls, floors and woodwork in homes, offices and public areas used by people allergic or otherwise sensitive to chemically based paints.
