Milk Paint

Hi, Milkfans

Yes, you read that right!

You can paint you house with milk. Or your furniture for that matter. Milk Paint was used quite a lot in history. It is in vogue again as a child friendly paint – it can be chewed off the building blocks without poisoning the child.

It consists mainly of skim milk, alkaline, end some color. The alkaline, like sodium hydroxide denatures the milk protein and fixes it, while being neutralized in the process  – well you can read more, as well as get contact details for suppliers at

Kind Regards,

Leon the Milkman
