About our Non Toxic Paint
Milk paint is an environmentally friendly paint that is ideal for antique furniture, decks, floors and walls. You can
mix milk paint with pigment powders to create just about any color you
can imagine. And, the Real Milk Paint Company does not stop there. We
also offer milk paint remover, crackle, tung oil, Citrus Solvent (a natural replacement for mineral spirits and paint thinner) and a host of other earth friendly products.
Real Milk Paint® was developed in our antique restoration business based on the need for
authentic, Real Milk Paint® in a traditional color palette that can give a fantastic wood finish. Real Milk Paint®, in 28 colors, is our own exclusive formula made from all organic materials including powdered purified
casein, lime and pigments. Real Milk Paint® is a natural paint and is not a repackaged paint
from another company, or simulated milk paint. Our powdered milk paint formula will remain usable for a minimum of a
two-week period after being mixed with water. Other milk paints have a short pot life and congeal (jell) to a blob
allowing only one day to use the mixed paint or be forced to discard the remainder.
Milk paint, a non toxic paint, was originally made from all organic raw materials, curdled milk, lime, and pigment. Black pigment may have
been derived from coal, soot, or charcoal. Red color comes from the
earth's crust or a crushed brick. Yellow Ochre harvested from
the earth. Our pigments today are harvested in the traditional manner and are completely safe, eco-friendly, non-toxic,
lead free and not radioactive. Real Milk Paint® is a non toxic paint finish made from purified milk protein, lime,
natural fillers and pigment. Other paint companies choose to use Kaolin Clay as filler. Real Milk Paint® does not
contain Kaolin Clay which can be derived from radioactive clays. Our organic paint comes in a water soluble powder and
does not contain solvents (Zero V.O.C. = No Volatile Organic Compounds). Our Formula contains almost one third
pharmaceutical grade high calcium lime. One of the curing properties of lime is that it goes through a process call
carbonization. This means that it absorbs carbon dioxide from the air, thus giving you cleaner indoor air quality when
used on interior walls. Using Real Milk Paint, a non toxic paint,
will REDUCE CARBON EMISSIONS that contribute to Global Warming. Real
Milk Paint can also be used outdoors as well further reducing carbon
Milk paint (casein paint) has been in use for hundreds
of years. Documentation shows early 16th century painters
recognized milk paint as having "much tenacity" along with giving
a great wood finish. Real Milk Paint® colors have been derived from
more than 15 years of
experience restoring and observing antique paint finishes of fine
Our powdered milk paint system allows you to control
the viscosity of the paint. Just add water to make a thick paint
or more water to make a wash coat. Real Milk Paint® will not congeal to an
unusable blob by the next day, but will remain usable for 2 weeks to a month. The richness of colors, combined with the
dry flat look, is unmatched by modern paints. Real Milk Paint® is virtually odorless during application and while
drying. All of the Real Milk Paint® colors can be intermixed to create your own custom shades. Real Milk Paint® will provide a variegated slightly streaky finish giving the look
of antiquity right off the brush. Because the milk paint does not flow
out after application like a latex paint, the brush marks and or roller
marks will remain as part of the textured surface to give a genuine wood finish.
Real Milk Paint® does have a texture feel to the dry paint but can be
sanded for a smoother result. Real Milk Paint® is also a porous paint
which will breathe and allow the exchange of moisture. For high traffic
areas such as kitchens, a sealer is recommended over the dry milk paint.
