Milk Paint Wood Stain

Homestead House Milk Paint is a natural paint made with 5 ingredients. Lime, Chalk, Clay, Casein (Milk protein) and Pigments. It is an ancient paint formula! A version of this paint can be found in cave drawings and the Pyramids.

Milk paint is a natural, eco-friendly and sustainable way to paint your home and furniture. It’s also easy to use and produces an amazingly durable finish that enhances the character of any surface. The milk protein in it acts as a binding agent for the pigment particles that provide colour, creating a smooth texture with low flat sheen. Milk paint can be used on furniture, walls or wood surfaces, but is best suited for absorbent materials such as raw wood, plaster and drywall because of its water-sensitive properties on furniture and other surfaces that may come into contact with water this paint needs to be sealed with a topcoat.
