Old Fashioned Milk Paint
Milk paint is a widely used paint in traditional Windsor chair
making. It is a non-toxic paint that comes in a powder form that
gets mixed with water. When you are ready to paint you only mix
the amount you need for the project you are working on. In my
case, this is usually a Windsor chair.
The paint comes in many colors, but being in a powder form, it can be mixed dry with white or any other color to create almost an unlimited number of colors. Two of my favorites are mixing Pitch Black with Lexington Green 50/50 in the powder form. This gives you a deep hunter green or emerald green. Or consider mixing Pitch Black with Barn Red 50/50 in the powder form which gives you a deep dark red like burgundy. Both of these reflect and change color in different light. There are many types of milk paint out there, but I prefer and sell Old Fashioned Milk Paint.
