Milk Paint is an all-natural paint containing basic ingredients: milk protein (casein), limestone, clay and natural pigments. Milk Paint comes as a powder, which is quite different than what most people are used to! Mixing paint yourself allows you to be in full control of what you want the paint to be. Do you want your finish to be watery and act more like a wash? Do you want it to be thick and textured? Or do you want it to be regular old paint? All can be accomplished with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint!
It is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and contains no VOCs!
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.
Don’t be intimidated, it’s a lot easier than it sounds. Just add ordinary water from your tap and mix with a small whisk, hand mixer or designated blender. And don’t worry, there’s detailed instruction on the bag too! For a full mixing tutorial click here.
With the Bonding Agent you can use Milk Paint on even more surfaces such as previously painted pieces, varnished surfaces, metal, etc. Without the bonding agent, Milk Paint will resist some prefinished or prepainted surfaces to achieve an authentic “chippy” look.
