Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint is BACK and better then ever before! We are so excited to announce a new formulation with only 4 ingredients which make this paint Eco friendly, 100% Natural, Non-Toxic and No VOCS. It is completely food contact safe so feel free to paint baby furniture or spoons without having to think twice. Best of all the paint is now made in the USA!
Read below on how to mix the paint. A few name changes happened as well, Eulalie's Sky is now Aqua Sky, Artissimo is now Ink Blue and Kitchen Scale is now Teal Ocean.

This classic shade of red reminds us of the shiny finish on a brand new tricycle with streamers dangling from the handlebars, candy apples at the state fair, and your favorite metal wagon you had as a child. Compared with Ruby, Tricycle is a bit more subdued, but it's not as dark as Schoolhouse Red. 

MMS Milk Paint Description: Milk Paint is a powdered paint that has been around for thousands of years. It was found in the pyramids in Egypt and has been used in America for years on furniture, walls, barns, etc. It is a versatile paint that can be used to achieve a variety of looks from chippy and distressed to smooth and sleek. Our new MilkPaint™ formula is made from four 100% natural ingredients that you can actually pronounce - casein (milk protein), lime (calcium hydroxide), natural pigments, and plant-based filler.


  1. Mix approximately 1 part water to 1 part milk paint powder with a blender (strictly used for paint), by shaking in a lidded container, hand mixing with a whisk, stir stick, or with a motorized paint mixer.

  2. Add warm water to container first, then add milk paint powder slowly and mix for 3-5 minutes.

  3. Paint a test swatch to make sure desired consistency has been achieved. If the paint is translucent or runny, it is too thin.  If the brush drags and the paint appears gritty or chunky, it is too thick.  Add more water or powder accordingly and mix again.

  4. Stir paint occasionally while painting, as pigments may settle at the bottom of the container.
MilkPaint™ can be applied to any porous surface without a primer. For adhesion to previously finished surfaces, sand with medium grit paper prior to application. For additional adhesion, add MilkGrip™ bonding agent. Shake bag to evenly disperse the pigments prior to mixing.

-Clean project thoroughly prior to painting with soap and water

-Mix equal parts water and milk paint powder

-Stir and allow to rest until pigments are fully dissolved

-Test before using to ensure the pigments are fully dissolved

-Adjust consistency as need by adding more water or powder
