General Finishes Milk Paint is a premium interior/exterior mineral based paint named for its low-luster sheen, which mimics the look of old-world furniture paint. It is not a powdered, casein-based milk paint, but a premixed modern version that is so durable it does not require a topcoat unless you want to increase the sheen.
You can mix it, lighten it, distress it, glaze it, layer different colours or antique it - perfect for upcycling or repurposing furniture. You can also intermix our Milk Paints with our varnishes and top coats.
Follow with our Glaze Effects for a distressed or antiqued look or Pearl Effects to create a pearlescent finish.
High use flat surfaces such as dining tables and desks will develop the patina of everyday life over time so we recommend top coating with High Performance to our customers who are patina-adverse or wish extra stain protection.
