OLD-FASHIONED MILK PAINTS

Non-toxic and environmentally safe, a modern version of the traditional paint much favoured by the Shakers.  Made from natural materials, milk protein, lime, earth pigments and clay fillers... no petrochemicals, leads, solvents or other harmful additives.  Safe for bedrooms, hospital rooms, hotel rooms and other areas for the environmentally sensitive.  You can achieve the "old" look immediately without the use of complicated antiquing kits.  This is an excellent painted finish for all types of furniture, wood floors and cupboards, woodwork and new plaster walls or stenciling.  In powder form, add to water to make up.

Americana Satins Furniture Paint

 

Fantastic quality paint developed specifically for furniture, available in Colonial/Shaker colours.  Suitable for all furniture, including kitchen cabinetry, with a wipeable satin finish.  Can be used both indoors and out ~ totally weather proof.  But the BEST THING is, unlike many other store bought satin paints, Americana Satins clean up with soap and water ~ no stinky, harsh chemicals!  Completely non-toxic so great for painting children's furniture and toys.  IN STOCK and available to purchase on-line through Calico Crafts (click here to visit the Paint Department).


All colours are reproduced as accurately as possible. However due to limitations and different monitors, resolutions etc these colours may not exactly match the actual paint or stain colours.
