Old Fashioned Milk Paint
The deep rich colors of Milk Paint authentically reflect those colors found on existing antique furniture and buildings. Our paint is made in small batches, using earth pigments. Modern paints cannot compare with the colors and the texture of the finish for achieving the "old" or "country look" of Colonial or Shaker furniture and interiors. And, like the paints used hundreds of years ago, the colors in our Milk Paint will not fade.
Many variations in color can be easily achieved. Milk Paint will produce an antique uneven matte surface when first applied. You can also create a semi-gloss look by simply burnishing the painted surface. When used with our Antique Crackle, Milk Paint will result in a textured surface with a "time worn" look to accent country interiors.
We package Milk Paint in a dry powder form allowing you to control the thickness of the paint for use as either a wash/stain, full cover coat, or for stenciling. Also, colors can be mixed to form various other hues and tones. For example: 6 tablespoons of Pitch Black to one pint of Lexington Green makes a wonderful dark green for Windsor chairs.
