Our 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 our 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.
Our 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.

ENJOY THE TIMELESS QUALITY OF MILK PAINT!
Our 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.
Old Fashioned 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.
SIMPLE TO USE:
- Mix: Measure about equal amounts of water and powder into separate containers. The one pint package contains about 1-1/2 cups of powder, and when mixed with 1-1/2 cups of water it will make about 1 pint of paint. (Note: warm water helps.)
- Apply: Apply with a dry brush, roller or spray gun. (Natural bristle brushes are fine, but foam brushes may require less effort and leave fewer brush marks.) Milk paint is naturally somewhat streaky in color. This is normal. Mix colors as you like! Milk Paint is also perfect for creating a weathered look!
- Clean up: Clean all tools with warm water and soap so that the paint doesn’t dry on them.
