Milk paint has been around for centuries, but this type of paint is still popular today for many reasons. It's colorfast, durable, and helps you recreate an aged look in no time at all. We give you the lowdown on milk paint, and show you how to mix it and use it in this week's eNote.
Since modern milk paint is still produced from organic raw materials — like powdered milk protein and clay — it's safe for the environment and your family. It never contains petrochemicals, fungicides, or preservatives, so it's non-toxic and lead-free.
So whether you want a paint that will give your projects a vintage look, or are simply looking for paint with a safe, "green" formula, give milk paint a shot.
