Old Fashioned Milk Paint SafePaint

SafePaint can be painted on most clean, dry surfaces. Where our traditional Old Fashioned Milk Paint prefers a porous surface, SafePaint prefers a nonporous surface. Once cured it develops good water resistance. This genuine, environmentally-safe, non-toxic, zero-VOC Milk Paint is available in twenty colors that dry to a beautiful velvet finish. Comes in powder form that mixes with water to make pints, quarts or gallons.

SafePaint, while still a true milk paint, has a more uniform appearance, while still very flat. It is fine for all interior wall applications both residential and commercial, including hospitals, retirement homes, schools, nurseries, offices, stores and public areas used by people allergic or otherwise sensitive to chemically based paints.
