Sweet Pickins Milk Paint is a true milk paint which comes in a powder form. Our Milk Paint is environmentally safe, non-toxic and is food safe. There is a slight milky odor when it is applied, but it is completely odorless when dry. Our Milk paint is 100% VOC free and is made with all natural earth materials.
Mixing & Coverage
To make the paint, you simply mix the powder with warm water. How far the paint goes will depend upon your painting technique, how thick/thin you mix the paint, how many coats you do and the contrast between the color your are painting compared to the piece your are painting.
- 2 oz. sample – covers approx 12 sq ft.
- 6 oz. pint – covers approx 36 sq ft.
- 12 oz. quart – covers approx 72 sq ft.
- Because milk paint comes in a powder form, you can control how thick/thin you mix the paint. You can use it as you would regular paint, thinner for a wash/stain or thicker to create texture.
- Milk Paint can naturally chip or crackle when applied over some existing finishes. This can result in an authentic look reminiscent of a chippy/aged/timeworn piece of furniture.
- Sweet Pickins Milk Paint colors can be mixed together to achieve your own custom colors. You can also add white to lighten or black to darken. Remember to keep your ratios if you want to recreate the color!
- Sweet Pickins Milk Paint can be top coated with any available product on the market. To protect milk paint from water spots and make it easier to clean, it must be top coated.
- Many variations in color and texture naturally occur on milk painted pieces and this is completely normal. These unique variations which only come with true milk paint, add depth and dimension to each project.
- You can use the same techniques for distressing and glazing milk paint as you would any other paint. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
