Milk Paint is an ancient all-natural paint containing five all-natural ingredients – milk protein (casein), limestone, clay, chalk and natural pigments. When absorbed into the 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 mold 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, organic, biodegradable, non-toxic and contains no VOCs.

Forget the idea that Milk Paint should only be used to achieve the “primitive look.” We’ve given this versatile, time-tested paint a facelift with new color options and fresh ideas on using it to fit your style. These are just a few of the ways Milk Paint can be used:

– Use it on porous surfaces to create a finish that doesn’t chip or flake with time.

– Increase the ratio of water to paint to create a colored stain or wash.

– Add the Bonding Agent when painting non-porous surfaces to increase adhesion. 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 pre-finished or pre-painted surfaces to achieve an authentic “chippy” look.


If the idea of using a powdered paint sounds intimidating, don’t worry! We’ve made video tutorials to walk you through every step of the process, so you can get the look you want and feel confident in your project.
