What is Milk Paint?
It’s a powdered, all natural paint (no VOC’s) that has been around for thousands of years. It was found in the pyramids in Egypt and on ancient cave paintings. It’s been used in America for years on furniture, walls, barns, etc. It is a versatile paint that gives a beautiful, smooth finish and a beautiful antique look.
Is Milk Paint good for raw wood?
Yes, it’s the best paint for raw wood. It acts like a stain, but looks like a paint. The color will penetrate the wood for a lasting finish that won’t chip or flake. This makes it an ideal paint for raw wood cabinets or floors.
Do I have to prime before using Milk Paint?
No. You can simply apply the bonding agent to the first coat of paint. That will make the first coat act almost like a colored primer. You do not need to add the bonding agent to the second coat.

Furniture Wax & Antiquing Wax is a great sealer commonly used on antiques to revive old wood effects, protect and condition the wood to prevent aging. Our beeswax is completely food safe, ideal for counter tops, salad bowls, cooking utensils, furniture, stone or cast iron. It’s very similar to other waxes on the market (Annie Sloan, Fiddes, Briwax), except it’s a little creamier
and very low odor.
