The Old Fashioned Milk Paint is a natural chemically safe and environmentally friendly paint
Milk paint is a nontoxic water-based paint. It can be made from milk and lime, generally with pigments added for colour. In 1974, after much experimentation, The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co. recreated an old Milk Paint formula to provide an authentic finish for the primary business of building reproduction furniture. Since then the company has sold paint to professionals who are either restoring original Colonial or Shaker furniture, making reproductions or striving for an interior design look that is both authentic and beautiful. Milk Paint is now gaining an even wider usage because it contains only ingredients that are all-natural and will not harm the environment. Authentic real milk paint is truly a "green paint" that comes in 20 colours.
