This is great for exterior decks chairs or furniture as it will never chip or peel. Over time slight wearing will occur with lots of rain on horizontal surfaces. Vertical surfaces are hardly impacted. Available in 4 colors: Pacific Redwood, Provincial Walnut, Quebec Maple, and Sherwood Brown. Many people custom blend colors together to create a custom shade variation. Any milk paint color can be turned into a stain by following the stain mixing instructions.

Simply mix with water and apply it to wood. 1 bag which mixes into a quart covers approximately 120 square feet.

After 3-5 years you can re-mix some stain and re-apply. There is no sanding required, no preparation work necessary. Just mix, apply, and seal!

To create a washed look or stain out of milk paint, simply add more water to your mixture! See below for tips and techniques on how to achieve your desired finish. Whichever technique you use, the finish will be unlike any other!

Step 1. Preparation
Make sure that your project is free of any previous top coats so that the Milk Paint Stain can properly absorb into the surface. This may require that you remove the previous layers by sanding them away, or using our nontoxic Soy Gel Paint and Urethane Stripper.

Step 2. Staining
Mixture for Stain: Mix 3 parts water to 1 part powder. Mix with a blender, or stir by hand. The consistency will be very thin, like water. Apply with even strokes from end to end for consistency. The stain will completely dry in approximately 15 minutes.
Tip. Add Homestead House Milk Paint Extender to your stain to keep the pigments suspended so that your color remains even. Stir your Milk Paint every 10 minutes.

Step 3. Finishing
Once you are satisfied with the application of your Milk Paint Stain you can gently sand with a 300 grit sandpaper to smooth out any raised wood grain. Once you are satisfied, you may continue with your desired topcoat. Hemp oil, tung oil, or beeswax are all excellent topcoat finishes that are 100% natural and food safe. The oil helps to seal and protect the surface and to saturate the Milk Paint so it appears vibrant and not chalky. Hemp oil and beeswax are recommended for interior applications. Tung oil is recommended for the exterior. Two coats of oil and you’re done! A varnish or urethane may also be used.
