What is Farmhouse Finishes?
FARMHOUSE FINISHES ORGANIC MILK PAINT FOR WALLS is a newly formulated milk paint designed for use on walls. Our original formula was created for porous surfaces like wood and masonry. Farmhouse Finishes was formulated for use on non-porous surfaces such as previously painted walls or plaster. It will also adhere to other surfaces such as metal, or prior finished wood, cabinetry, furniture, etc. And you can certainly use it on porous surfaces like bare wood as well. It is easily mixed, especially at higher speeds with a drill paint paddle or a portable kitchen beater. You just add water and mix.
Farmhouse Finishes doesn't have the "old world", uneven, mottled look of our original formula. It's flat, but much more uniform and consistent over a large area. It is more water resistant than our original paint, but on surfaces expected to take a lot of abuse you may want to put a clear sealer over the paint. SafePaint is washable once cured.
Like original milk paint, Farmhouse Finishes is made from elements that pre-date the use of petrochemicals and other toxic bases and solvents, it is biodegradable, non-toxic, and odor-free when dry. SafePaint is perfect by those who are chemically sensitive and those sensitive to the need to protect the environment.
Farmhouse Finishes for Walls arrives in powder form, but It is easily mixed, especially at higher speeds with a drill paint paddle or a portable kitchen beater. You just add water and mix. Farmhouse Finishes is available in all twenty colours of our existing palette of Milk Paint. And just like our original formula, Farmhouse Finishes powders may be blended together to create other colors.
