Milk Paint - Woodworking
Early settlers painted their furniture with milk paint. With the same ingredients of casein (a type of milk protein), clay, lime and earth pigments or vegetable dyes, these milk paints yield the same deep, rich colors as those used in a previous era. The lime and casein react to make a tough, non-fading paint that penetrates and bonds to the wood fibers for a durable finish that can be removed only by sanding.

Milk paint is perfect for finishing country crafts, Shaker boxes, signs and cupboards, for stencilling walls and restoring antique furniture, but it is most popular for reproduction colonial or Shaker furniture. Supplied as a dry powder, it is mixed with water and applied with a brush, roller or spray gun. The second coat can be applied in an hour or so. For a top coat, apply a finishing oil, paste wax or water-based acrylic finish.

Instructions supplied (snow white is used as a reducer). Not recommended for exterior use. The 170g (6 oz) package will mix about 17 oz of paint. Coverage is approximately 30 to 40 sq.ft. for three solid coats. An excellent and easy-to-use finish.

Made in USA.
