Milk Paint

Porter's Milk Paint is a traditional finish, first used in the 18th and 19th centuries on Shaker and country style furniture, doors, skirting boards and architraves. It is made from milk by-products mixed with powdered oxide pigment to produce subtle, mellow colours. Milk Paint has a rustic, chalky appearance that instantly softens and ages the look of new furniture.
