Milk Paint Stripper.
As in originally produced
home-made milk paint, we use milk
protein, lime, clay, and earth
pigments such as ochre, umber,
iron oxide, lampblack, etc. The
lime is alkaline but becomes
totally inert when mixed with the
slightly acid milk. We use no
lead, no chemical preservatives,
no fungicides. Milk paint
contains no hydrocarbons or any
other petroleum derivatives.
Milk Paint is environmentally
safe and non-toxic. There is a
slight milky odor when it is
applied, but it is completely
odorless when dry. The paint is
safe for children's furniture and
toys, and can also be used for
interiors of homes of people who
are allergic to modern paints.
The deep rich colors of Milk
Paint authentically reflect those
colors found on existing antique
furniture and buildings. Our
paint is made in small batches,
using earth pigments. Modern
paints cannot compare with the
colors and the texture of the
finish for achieving the
"old" or "country
look" of Colonial or Shaker
furniture and interiors. And,
like the paints used hundreds of
years ago, the colors in our Milk
Paint will not fade.
Many variations in color can
be easily achieved. Milk Paint
will produce an antique uneven
matte surface when first applied.
You can also create a semi-gloss
look by simply burnishing the
painted surface. When used with
our Antique Crackle, Milk Paint
will result in a textured surface
with a "time worn" look
to accent country interiors.
We package Milk Paint in a dry
powder form allowing you to
control the thickness of the
paint for use as either a
wash/stain, full cover coat, or
for stenciling. Also, colors can
be mixed to form various other
hues and tones. For example: 6
tablespoons of Pitch Black to one
pint of Lexington Green makes a
wonderful dark green for Windsor
Over 35 years ago at this same
location, we founded our other
company, Craftsman Lumber
Co., which specializes in
wide pine and oak flooring,
paneling and custom mill work.
Today, after an unbroken 350 year
history of practical use, these
wide pine and oak boards are hard
to find. All of the pine and native hardwoods we mill are sustainably harvested. For more information
