Experience the satisfaction of making over an old home decor item with a fresh Milk Paint color. At James T. Davis, we carry Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint as the perfect product for both distressed and antiqued design transformations. To show the simplicity of the process, we’ve put together a tutorial below. Additionally, we regularly host workshops at our store, to guide you through the steps.
About Milk Paint
As an all-natural paint choice, Milk Paint contains milk protein (casein), limestone, clay, chalk, and natural pigments. So, the application is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and contains no VOCs. Naturally mold resistant, the paint can be used for both interior and exterior applications. Additionally, milk paint works on a variety of surfaces, such as, painting wood, plaster, drywall, and a variety of other surfaces.
Just add water to the powder to create your paint. Also, prepare difficult surfaces using a Milk Paint Bonding Agent. Without the bonding agent, Milk Paint will resist some prefinished or prepainted surfaces to achieve an authentic distressed or chippy look.
