General Finishes Milk Paint is a premium self-sealing interior/exterior waterbased mineral based paint named for its low-lustre sheen, now made with more than 50% RENEWABLE RESOURCES formulated from sustainable materials that decrease the carbon footprint.
It is adaptable and UV resistant. It may be applied via brush or spray and possesses excellent flow and levelling properties.
You can mix it, lighten it, distress it, glaze it, layer different colours or antique it - perfect for upcycling or repurposing furniture.
High use flat surfaces such as dining tables and desks will over time develop the patina of everyday life due to the flat matte finish of this paint. If you want a solid consistent colour and do not want this natural distressing over time we recommend top coating with High Performance Topcoat. This topcoat comes in 6 different sheens, so you can choose the perfect finish to suit your taste.
How Does General Finishes Milk Paint Differ To Milk Paint By Fusion
Milk Paint By Fusion is a traditional Milk Paint, it comes as a powder and you mix it easily with water to create a paint. This creates a thinner stain-like consistency which will achieve lots of authentic vintage effects, such as chippy, crackle and distressing. Milk Paint by Fusion will also create a sueded effect across your surface, with beautiful variations of pigment and texture. Its a stunningly creative paint! Milk Paint by Fusion requires sealing with a wax, oil or varnish.
General Finishes Milk Paint is not a true "casein-based milk paint" (there is no milk in it), but a modern version of old world paint with a strong mineral base. It is designed to give you the same flat matte texture as traditional Milk Paint but it is premixed and will give you a flat consistent colour instead of the vintage pigment variations you will acheive across your surface with Milk Paint by Fusion.
