Organic milk paint for bare wood and interior walls with a family tradition since 1974. Just add warm water to the milk paint powder and stir. "It’s like making chocolate milk", Charles Thibeau said.
20 rustic tones mixed with water only: lime + cow's milk protein + natural earth pigment. Free of additives, volatile organic solvents, harmful chemicals and odours. 100% biodegradable traditional ecological milk paint for wood and interior walls is ideal for the environment of pregnant women, newborns, babies, children, the whole family and pets. Charles Thibeau from Groton, Massachusetts, began experiments in 1974 to reproduce the original formula of organic powder based on cow's milk protein. American colonists used skim milk or buttermilk, but Charles Thibeau decided to use milk protein in powder form so that the natural ingredients could be stored for a long time and easily mixed with water. The oldest surfaces on Earth were painted with milk paint. Cave drawings and paintings made 20.000 years ago are made with a simple mixture of milk, lime and earth pigments. The original formula for milk paint was so easy to make and use, and for thousands of years, it has been a significant form of decoration all over the world.
The traditional organic milk paint was devised in 1974 in the city of Groton, Massachusetts, USA. Our milk paint warehouse is located in Opatija, Croatia. By using organic milk paint, we're all contributing to a healthier world.

"I am proud of our history, and my father’s innovation in developing a modern version of a very historic, natural paint. I’m proud to make paint that people with multiple chemical sensitivities or allergies to conventional, chemically-based paints can tolerate and add a little colour to their world, a paint that is biodegradable and safe."
Milk paint has been used for thousands of years. It's incredibly durable and often lasts for hundreds of years if it's protected from wear and weather.
