MMS Milk Paint Description: Milk Paint is an ancient paint containing just five simple ingredients – milk protein (casein), limestone, clay, chalk and natural & non-toxic synthetic 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, non-toxic and contains no VOCs.
Milk paint comes in powder form and will need to be mixed with water to make your paint. A one-quart bag of paint will cover approximately 70 sq. ft. and will also require a top coat. Whether that be wax, hemp oil or tough coat, they will all ensure a beautiful and lasting finish on your project.
