Homestead House Milk Paint


Made in Canada by Homestead house, a Canadian Family run company, since 1988, Milk paint is an ancient all-natural paint containing milk protein (casein), limestone, clay, chalk and natural pigments. It 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 wood, plastering, drywall and a variety of other surfaces. It is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and contains no VOCs. Milk paint comes in powder.

Milk paint gives you the ability to easily add distressing, chipping, flaking, rubbed or otherwise cottage chic appearance to give your pieces a one-of-a-kind vintage look. OR use the bonding agent for a non-distressed finish. A Milk Paint finish is unique and can range from a solid color to a stain, it all depends on how much water you add

Each 230g ziplock bag (one Quart) will contain enough powder to mix up a full-quart of paint, witch covers approximately 70 sq. feet. With the sample bag (30g) you will be able to do a small project of approx. 10sq. feet. Simply mix this powder with water- it’s that easy!

If you have a large project (kitchen cabinets, walls...) or paint furniture as your business you might be interested in our 5 Pound bags available on request. They will cover approx. 700 to 750 sq. feet.

This listing is for One pack of paint to choose from 30 different colours and 4 different sizes (Sample, 1 Quart, 2 Quarts, 5 Quarts). Please make your choice at check out.

Mixing: Mix approximately 1 part water to 1 part milk paint powder. Drying time is approximately 30 minutes. Lightly sand with a 220 grit sandpaper to smooth surface. Remove dust. A top coat is required to protect the paint and bring out the richness and depth of the color. We recommend MMS Hemp Oil for a 100% natural finish or MMS Furniture Wax for a hand-rubbed appearance.
