Milk Paint & Natural Finishes
We now carry Milk Paint, Hemp Oil, Beeswax and Tung Oil!
Milk paint is bought in a powder form and it is mixed with water. It is an amazing finish for furniture when used with the hemp oil and beeswax finishes as top coats. I put a link to a milk paint tutorial on our Facebook page, but I don’t know if it is allowed to link to our website without permission. You can get a very nice “aged” look. It is very easy to work with, and dries super-quick so you could potentially finish all coats in one day – minus the top coats, of course.
All of these products are food safe, biodegradable, chemical free and zero VOC. They are great to use for the chemically sensitive and for people who want to use natural products that don’t harm the environment.
A few benefits of milk paint:
- 100% natural & biodegradable

- No primer required
- Virtually odourless
- Fast drying

When absorbed into the surfcace, Milk Paint will never chip or peel. Milk Paint is suitable for both interior and exterior applications and is naturally mould resistant. Milk pain provides a completely breathable coating and is ideal for painting plasters, drywall, straw bale houses and a variety of other surfaces.
