The Ultimate Guide to Milk Paint

Ultimate Guide to Milk PaintRecapture the tradition of early American craftsmen. Reflect on a gracious past, while looking ahead at the contemporary elegance of farmhouse chic. With easy-to-use FolkArt Milk Paint, it is all possible! FolkArt Milk Paint is truly the only pre-mixed, non-toxic, casein-based milk paint on the market today. Perfect for use on raw, unfinished furniture, it penetrates the surface and becomes one with the wood rather than a film that rests on the surface like latex paints.

FolkArt Milk Paint can also be used on previously painted, stained or varnished surfaces when combined with FolkArt Bonding Primer & Sealer, which can give new life to a second-hand piece of furniture. There is a lot to share. Come, be inspired by the many DIY enthusiasts, crafters and makers who are already enjoying the velvety, smooth dead flat finish FolkArt Milk Paint gives the painted surface. Read through the carefully written instructions, view the step-by-step photography and be inspired to give FolkArt Milk Paint a try, you will not be disappointed!
