The Homestead House Milk Paint is made of casein, a milk protein. It is a 100% natural and environmentally friendly product, blended with natural colouring materials, such as coal, natural earth and berries. This is what allows us to offer a range of 30 colours, imitating Canada’s historic colours. Milk paint perfectly imitate old painting processes. It leaves the wood pattern appearing while being opaque, and gives an antique and worn look finish, like Quebec’s old furniture.
Made in Canada by Homestead House, our milk paint is a powder that just needs warm water to be added before its application. Easy to apply, it is a non-toxic recommended painting for children’s toys.
