Milk Paint

Source

As in the originally produced home-made milk paint, Milk Paint combines milk protein, lime, clay, and earth pigments such as ochre, umber, iron oxide, lampblack, etc. The lime is alkaline but becomes totally inert when mixed with the slightly acid milk. We use no lead, no chemical preservatives, no fungicides. Milk paint contains no hydrocarbons or any other petroleum derivatives. Milk Paint is environmentally safe and non-toxic - it is an all natural, biodegradable paint in powder form containing no preservatives and zero VOC's. There is a slight milky odor when it is applied, but it is completely odorless when dry. The paint is safe for children's furniture and toys, and can also be used for interiors of homes of people who are allergic to modern paints. 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. And, like the paints used hundreds of years ago, the colors of Milk Paint will not fade.
