What is Milk Paint?
Milk Paint is the oldest natural paint known to man and can still be found in some cave paintings. It comes in sealed bags as a powder and contains just 5 all-natural ingredients: milk protein (casein), limestone, clay, chalk and natural non-toxic pigments. When mixed only with water and absorbed into a 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 mould 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 prefinished or prepainted surfaces to achieve an authentic “chippy” look.
