Get that old country look with ease
The milk paint usually made in limited series and we use only earth pigments in ours. On the other hand, modern paints can’t compare their colors or the texture of the finish to achieve that “old country look” which became very popular lately. It’s also good to know that the milk paint is the same one that has been used centuries ago, and it won’t fade like modern paints do. Speaking of the color, many variations are possible. Milk paint can give you an antique matte surface, on its first applying. For making a semi-gloss look, you just simply need to burnish the painted surface. If you want to get a “time worn” looking textured surface, use our milk paint with an Antique Crackle and this kind of result is guaranteed.
