Homestead House Milk Paints are beautiful & practical.

Milk Paint is a natural paint made with 5 ingredients. Lime, Chalk, Clay, Casein (Milk protein) and Pigments.

It is an ancient paint formula! A version of this paint can be found in cave drawings and the Pyramids.

Milk paint is a natural, eco-friendly and sustainable way to paint your home and furniture. It’s also easy to use and produces an amazingly durable finish that enhances the character of any surface.

The milk protein in it acts as a binding agent for the pigment particles that provide colour, creating a smooth texture with a low flat sheen. The Lime reconstitutes to give a super hard-wearing finish.

Achieving the Chippy Look 

Milk Paint is famous for its ‘Chippy’ look. This happens when the paint is applied to a previously painted surface without sanding. It chips off in certain areas creating this time-worn authentic look. No other paint on the market can achieve this. To achieve a chippy look on a prepped or raw wood surface just add a little Salad Bowl Finish WaxHemp Oil or our Beeswax Block will also work to provide a resist and get that chippy look.
