What is milk paint exactly?
Milk Paint is an organic, biodegradable, zero VOC paint formulated from raw and natural ingredients such as chalk, clay, limestone, casein -a milk protein- and natural earth based pigments for color. Milk paint is provided in powder form and by simply adding water you have milk paint. It’s that simple! A milk paint finish is unique and can range range from a stain or wash to a solid color, depending on how much water is added. It can be used on any porous surface without the need for a primer.
When absorbed into a porous surface such as raw wood, Milk Paint soaks in and will never chip or peel. Milk Paint is suitable for both interior and exterior applications and is naturally mold resistant. Milk paint provides a completely breathable coating and is ideal for painting plaster, drywall and a variety of other surfaces.
Bonding Agent = No Sanding, No Priming! It’s True!
Yes, you can really just paint right over that! When added to pre-mixed milk paint, the bonding agent allows the milk paint to adhere to non-porous surfaces such as glass, metal and existing finishes, like polyurethane or glossy top coats. For optimum adhesion, we recommend thoroughly cleaning the surface to be painted with T. S. P. and lightly sanding to roughen up the surface.
To use with milk paint: Mix one part of the bonding agent and two parts of pre-mixed milk paint. For an even stronger adhesion mix equal parts bonding agent to pre-mixed milk paint.
