    Milk Paint - The Blue Collection, All Natural VOC-free Finish

    Milk Paint is an eco-friendly, food contact safe paint perfect for any project. Made from milk protein, calcium lime, natural pigment, and plant based filler, Milk Paint is entirely natural and environmentally friendly. Milk Paint works best for raw wood, but can also adhere to other porous surfaces (listed below) and finished wood.   This is our Blue Collection! If you would like to see our most popular colors, check out our Best-selling Collection! If you are looking for a specific color, our other collections include Reds, Oranges, Yellows, Greens, Blues, Pinks and Purples, Whites, Grays, Blacks, and Browns.     Continue reading for more information on Milk Paint, including frequently asked questions and directions on how to use. If you have any other questions, please feel free to message us directly!   Frequently Asked Questions   ♡ Does Milk Paint have to be sealed? ▫ It is recommended that a sealer or finish is used to keep water or dirt from contaminating or dirtying the paint. ▫ While most wood finishes work, we recommend using Pure Tung Oil, Hemp Oil, or Carnauba Wax to finish the paint because all three are all-natural and VOC-free. If you would like to read more about Tung Oil or Hemp Oil, you can check out our Pure Tung Oil Listing.   ♡ Is Milk Paint safe to use outside? ▫ Yes! Milk paint works well outside and remains vibrant! ▫ To keep milk paint clean and preserved, it is recommended to finish. For the best outdoor sealant, we recommend Pure Tung Oil (for more information, check out our Pure Tung Oil Listing).   ♡ Is this safe for children’s toys or for children to use? ▫ Yes! This is entirely non-toxic, VOC-free, and is perfectly safe for children to be around. This paint is perfect for children’s toys because it soaks into the wood (instead of just creating a layer on top), protecting little ones from paint chips.   ♡ What does Milk Paint stick to? ▫ Milk Paint works best on raw wood, drywall, unsealed walls, unsealed brick, concrete or other porous materials the paint can soak into. It also works over old wood finishes. ▫ Milk paint does not stick well to new metal surfaces, plastics, or oil-base paints unless an additive, such as Ultra Bond, is mixed in. For more information on Ultra Bond, check out our Ultra Bond listing! ▫ No primer is needed for raw wood or other porous surfaces! ▫ When refinishing antiques, be sure the surface is very clean, a light sanding would be necessary. Tri-Sodium Phosphate can be used as a cleaner once the furniture is stripped.       Directions for Use ♡ Preparation ▫ Make sure the surface is free of contamination, wax, grease, or oils. We recommend TSP (trisodium phosphate) as a cleaner. For painting over nonporous or previously finished surfaces always test for adhesion or use Ultra Bond to ensure adhesion. Real Milk Paint® is a natural product and sticks best to other natural, porous surfaces like raw wood, concrete, brick, terra cotta, etc. ▫ To remove conventional paints, we recommend Soy Gel. Or use Milk Paint Remover to strip away protein-based paints like milk paint.     ♡ Application ▫ Each Real Milk Paint® package contains the appropriate amount of powdered milk paint to create the stated amount of paint (sample, pint, quart, gallon). The recommended mixture is one part milk paint powder to one part water.   - Sample – 2 tbsp - Pint – 1.25 cups - Quart – 2.5 cups - Gallon – 10 cups   ▫ Remove the bag from the can. Measure the desired amount of Real Milk Paint® powder into the can. Add equal parts of water into the can (tap water can be used). For the best results, use warm or distilled water. Place the marble in the can. Securely place the lid on the can and shake for approximately 5 minutes. Let paint rest for 10-20 minutes so Real Milk Paint® powder fully dissolves in water. Repeat shaking steps if clumps are present in the milk paint.   ▫ Real Milk Paint® should have a creamy consistency. If the paint is too thin, add small amounts of milk paint powder, stirring and shaking as necessary. If the consistency of the paint is too thick, add small amounts of water into the mixture.   ▫ Stir frequently while painting. Apply with a natural bristle brush, painter’s brush, foam brush, or foam roller. Allow the Milk Paint to dry on the surface for 30 minutes (or until dry to the touch) before applying successive coats. For complete and even coverage, two coats are recommended.   ▫ Milk paint is naturally porous and if left unsealed may absorb dirt, greases, and stains. After the paint has dried, it can be sealed with a variety of finishes. Some of our recommendations include Pure Tung Oil, Hemp Oil, and Soft or Carnauba Wax. (For more information, see our Pure Tung Oil listing or Hemp Oil listing).   ▫ Milk Paint has a 3-year shelf life as a dry powder and 14 day-use after mixing with water. Dispose of unwanted milk paint in compost or by local disposal regulations. Clean up with mild soap and water.     ♡ Coverage SAMPLE - 2 sq. ft. Real Milk Paint® Sample size covers approximately 2 sq. feet. This size can paint a small picture frame or add color accents to wooden children’s toys. Perfect for finding the color for your next project!   PINT - 35 sq. ft. Real Milk Paint® Pint size covers approximately 35 sq. feet. Enough paint for a small dresser or two regular chairs.   QUART - 70 sq. ft. Real Milk Paint® Quart size covers approximately 70 sq. feet.

The gallon size is the size you need to cover small kitchen cabinets or large dining room table and chairs.     ♡ Hints and Tips Milk Paint is highly customizable to create the look, texture, and feel you envision. Here are a few ways to manipulate the paint to create different looks; ▫ To create a wash, stain, or pickling effect with the milk paint, simply add more water to the milk paint mixture. ▫ For a crackle or “alligator” look, paint over previously finished surfaces.     ♡ Spraying Milk Paint ▫ It is possible to spray milk paint! Here are a few recommendations when looking to spray milk paint... ▫ Mix milk paint according to the instructions above. Using a blender is also recommended to ensure any clumps get broken up. ▫ Allow mixed paint to rest overnight so that milk paint powder fully dissolves. ▫ Strain the mixed milk paint through a cheesecloth or paint strainer before pouring into the hopper. ▫ Use the largest needle size on spray gun to allow any large particles to pass through the gun.   If you still have questions, remember you can always message us directly!

  • Half & Half, Pre-Mixed Pure Tung Oil and Citrus Solvent Half & Half, Pre-Mixed Pure Tung Oil and Citrus Solvent

    Half & Half, Pre-Mixed Pure Tung Oil and Citrus Solvent

    2 reviews

    ♡ DescriptionA perfect blend of Pure Tung Oil and natural, food grade thinner. One part Pure Tung Oil mixed to one part Citrus Solvent. Most projects require the thick viscosity of Pure Tung Oil to be thinned for better absorption into the surface. Half & Half is the perfect ratio for projects large and small. This is pre-mixed Pure Tung Oil and Citrus Solvent. We found that is most cases the Pure Tung Oil is too thick to penetrate most surfaces. Thinning with a natural solvent helps the oil penetrate deeper into the material. The 1 to 1 or Half & Half ratio works great all-around for most surfaces like new raw wood, butcher block countertops, cutting boards, concrete, terra cotta clay pots, stone, and slate. This finish is also food contact safe! Generally, 3 to 5 coats are needed to seal and waterproof. This all-natural finish does take 7 to 10 days to develop a water resistance and a full 30 days for a complete cure. A quick way to see the color of your surface before oiling is to just wet with water. The way it looks wet but not glossy is the color you have when the oil is dry! Continue below for more information on Half and Half, including its advantages, properties characteristics, and in-depth directions for use. If you have any further questions, feel free to message us directly!**Shipping NoteThis product cannot ship UPS Air or USPS International.What is Tung Oil? ▫ Tung Oil is a hard drying wood oil that provides a lustrous and beautiful finish. It resists marring, penetrates well, and is environmentally friendly. Our tung oil is 100% pure and of the highest quality you’ll find. It’s all-natural, food safe, and creates a matte finish. FDA approved for food contact.▫ The Tung Oil offered by Real Milk Paint is a 100% pure oil meaning it comes without any heavy metals, additives, or distillates. Most other oils can be anything from a thinned down varnish to polymerized tung, and most have petroleum distillates added. Ours will not build a gloss finish or heavy finish but will penetrate deeply into the wood to enhance character and water resistance while creating a great wood finish.▫ This makes our pure tung oil perfect for uses such as wood counter tops, bowls, butcher blocks, cutting boards, chopping blocks, outdoor furniture, decks, wood siding, wood flooring, concrete, brick and just about any porous surface that needs an environmentally friendly product.▫ We guarantee our Tung Oil is ASTM Quality Tested to be light in color with the highest amount of reactive sites to ensure drying and a great wood finish. We use only the freshest, highest quality product. All of our oils are “fresh” pumped from a drum just before shipping.What is Citrus Solvent?▫ Natural Citrus Solvent is used as a direct replacement for mineral spirits and odorless mineral spirits. Citrus Solvent can be used wherever paint thinner or mineral spirits are required as a natural, safer alternative. Citrus Solvent is not the same as any of the other “citrus-branded” cleaning products on the market, including Citrus Solve or Citri-Solve. It is, however, an excellent degreaser, paint thinner alternative, and can be used to replace petroleum chemicals such as mineral spirits.▫ Citrus Solvent is 98% pure citrus peel oil extracted from the peel of the orange fruit; the other 2% is water. This small amount of water is emulsified in the solvent and will not raise wood grain but is released into the air as the solvent evaporates.♡ Advantages of Half and Half▫ Pre-thinned and pre-mixed▫ Zero VOC’s▫ All Natural means “Green”▫ Best Available, Grade 1 yellow▫ Naturally polymerizing finish▫ Cures by oxidation, not evaporation▫ Does not form a glossy finish no matter the number of coats▫ Form a flexible waterproof finish▫ Resists abrasion and acids▫ Does not blister and peel (properly applied)▫ Does not mold like linseed oil▫ Long shelf life (will last for years, properly sealed)▫ Does not darken with time like linseed oil▫ FDA approved for food contact▫ Does not go rancid▫ 7 to 10 days partial cure, 15 to 30 days full cure♡ Properties and Characteristics▫ All natural finish that is both water and alkali resistant as well as offers a protective barrier.▫ Will not darken with age as other finishes will.▫ Resists marring, penetrates well, elastic and unlikely to check.▫ It builds quickly, consolidates the wood surface, and builds a transparent matte finish.▫ It will not mildew or bleed like linseed oil when dry which makes it an excellent candidate for outdoor finishes.▫ It should be kept in an airtight container with minimum airspace.▫ A Pure Tung Oil finish mixed with Citrus Solvent is an all-natural organic finish that is environmentally safe and food safe.♡ Coverage▫ Sample oz. covers 1 sq. foot▫ 16 oz. covers 50 sq. feet▫ 32 oz. covers 100 sq. feet▫ Gallon covers 400 sq. feet▫ Example: One Gallon would cover 400 sq. feet one time.♡ Directions for Use▫ There are four phases when it comes to using Pure Tung Oil for your projects.PreparationApplicationCuringMaintenance♡ Preparation▫ Be sure the surface of your project is free of dust, debris, or grime.▫ Check to see if the surface is porous. (Pure Tung Oil works by absorbing into the material and filling the open pores. Therefore, if your material is not porous, it will not accept Pure Tung Oil. To test if your surface is porous or not, place a small amount of water on the surface. If the water absorbs, it is porous. If it does not and beads on the surface, you may need to sand and/or strip the surface.)▫ If you need to sand your surface, we recommend not going above 220 grit sandpaper. Too high of a sandpaper grit will “polish” the surface, hindering proper absorption of Pure Tung Oil.▫ If stripping your surface is needed, we recommend using Soy Gel: Paint and Urethane Stripper.▫ If you are looking for a darker color finish, take a look at our Dark Tung Oil.▫ We recommend using water or alcohol-based stains on the wood before the Pure Tung Oil is applied. Most oil-based stains should be avoided as they tend to seal the wood and prevent absorption of the Pure Tung Oil.▫ Quick Tip: DO NOT use a wood conditioner. This will seal the wood and prevent the tung oil from absorbing.▫ You can thin Pure Tung Oil with a variety of thinners. If you are doing a project where you want to use natural, food contact safe products, try Citrus Solvent. NOTE: Most projects DO require this thinning. Only very old, dry wood or concrete tend to use unthinned Pure Tung Oil.▫ Don’t want to deal with the hassle of thinning it yourself? Look no further than our Half & Half! Pre-mixed Pure Tung Oil and Citrus Solvent mean you can use it right from the bottle without any mixing!♡ APPLICATION▫ When applying Half and Half, here’s a handy thing to remember: Apply, Absorb, Repeat or RemoveApply – Apply the oil to the surface.Absorb – Let the oil absorb into the material.Repeat – Do what you just did, apply the oil and let it absorb.Remove – When the oil isn’t absorbing and pooling on the surface, remove it with a rag.Cure – Let the Half and Half go through its natural curing process.▫ For the best results, you want to saturate the material with the tung oil to the point where a majority of the surface is no longer absorbing the oil. This will look like puddles on the surface even after waiting 40 minutes. Just like a sponge, the wood (or other porous surfaces) will only absorb so much oil before it can’t anymore. This saturation is achieved by doing multiple coats.▫ You can apply Half and Half with a brush, rag, roller, or even a pump sprayer depending on your project and needs. We recommend brushes and/or foam rollers for most projects.▫ Apply a generous first coat.▫ Let the oil absorb into the surface, waiting if needed, up to 40 minutes.▫ Apply another coat, let it absorb, and repeat the previous steps.▫ Continue this process until you reach the desired amount of coats or have fully saturated the wood. You can tell the wood is saturated when the oil puddles on the surface and no longer absorbs oil across a majority of the surface. To be sure, wait 40 minutes. If the oil is still puddling, then you will know the surface is saturated.▫ Taking a clean rag or cloth, remove any excess tung oil that is puddling or pooling on the surface.▫ Hang those oil-soaked rags outdoors to dry. DO NOT pile the rags or put them in a container.▫ For the best finish, we recommend letting this application rest and settle overnight. The following day, apply one or two more coats of Tung Oil to the surface of your project, following the same steps outlined above.♡ Curing▫ Half and Half does not contain any additives to speed the drying process, such as heavy metallic dryers. Because of this, it can take up to 30 days to completely/thoroughly cure by its natural polymerization process. Provided below are some guidelines to follow during the curing phase.▫ Pure Tung Oil cures best in warm, well-ventilated places. The warmer and more ventilated the area, the faster it will cure.▫ Placing objects on the surface will “suffocate” and prevent the Pure Tung Oil from curing properly. If there is no airflow between the surface and the object, it should be removed until the curing is complete (30 days).▫ During the first 7-15 days of curing, you can use the surface. However, you will want to avoid getting it dirty or allowing liquids to puddle on the surface.▫ As the Pure Tung Oil cures, its durability and resistance to liquids and dirt will also increase. The first 7-15 days is when the oil is at its freshest and weakest state. After that point, increased regular use of the surface can take place.▫ As Pure Tung Oil cures, it slightly expands and may push fresh oil back to the surface. Check for oil that may be seeping to the surface and remove it, if found, with a rag.If you have any other questions feel free to message us directly!

Mineral spirits, methyl ethyl ketone, acetone, toluene, glycol ethers, and fluorinated or chlorinated organic solvents are all caustic chemicals that can be detrimental to health.▫ Citrus Solvent can be used as an effective replacement for toxic chlorinated solvents, glycol ether, MEK (methyl ethyl ketone), xylene, and Freon.▫ Its cleaning and degreasing properties make it a wonderful alternative to CFC-laden cleaners, engine degreaser (automotive, aircraft and aerospace industries), tar and asphalt remover, asbestos shingle remover, graffiti remover, grease trap maintainer, and lift station and sewage treatment applications.▫ It is also perfect for cleaning the surfaces of items before using our non-toxic paint to paint them. Citrus Solvent’s safe, gentle nature makes it an excellent hand cleaner, electronics cleaner, and floor cleaner.▫ The specific industrial applications for Citrus Solvent are virtually endless:Printing press cleanerCarpet stain cleanerMetal cleanerAerosol ingredientFragrance additiveDeodorant for petroleumHeat transfer medium♡ How does Citrus Solvent differ Mineral Spirits?▫ Citrus Natural Solvent is an excellent Alternative to Odorless Mineral Spirits▫ Odorless mineral spirits is a sub-category of mineral spirits, a widely used paint thinning substitute for turpentine. First developed for the dry cleaning industry and known as Stoddard solvent, mineral spirits has been around since the 1920’s.▫ Mineral spirits is a mild petroleum distillate with a low volatility. It is typically used today for lubrication, cleaning, and degreasing. The variety of mineral spirits most commonly used in painting is type II odorless mineral spirits. With the following of certain precautionary measures, the use of both mineral spirits and odorless mineral spirits is considered safe for cleaning applications. While odorless mineral spirits is treated to remove the aromatic elements, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) still advises of potential health effects associated with the use of all types of mineral spirits. These effects include eye and skin irritation, as well as dangers from inhalation or ingestion. Prolonged exposure, such as the repeated use of odorless mineral spirits in the workplace, can lead to organ damage.▫ Real Milk Paint Citrus Natural Solvent is an excellent alternative to odorless mineral spirits. It is safe to use and environmentally friendly, but powerful enough to effectively do the work of odorless mineral spirits. The 98% pure citrus peel oil, 2% water formula is tough enough to remove paint, degrease, clean tar and asphalt, and a host of other challenging jobs, for which odorless mineral spirits is often used.▫ Citrus Natural Solvent offers the following advantages over odorless mineral spirits:Citrus Natural Solvent can be easily disposed of with no harm to the environmentOdorless Mineral Spirits must be disposed of in accordance with local regulationsCitrus Natural Solvent has a safe and pleasant aromaOdorless Mineral Spirits can be harmful to the respiratory systemCitrus Natural Solvent does not contribute to smog or air pollutionOdorless Mineral Spirits releases toxins that contaminate the airCitrus Natural Solvent does not require special regulation in consumer quantizes.Odorless Mineral Spirits must be disposed of in accordance with local regulationsCitrus Natural Solvent is 100% natural, with no emulsions or surfactantsOdorless Mineral Spirits contain potentially harmful chemical additives♡ History and Facts▫ Citrus Natural Solvent is a biodegradable, naturally-occurring solvent, as the main component is simply citrus peel oil. Citrus Solvent’s interesting chemical properties, pleasant citrus aroma, and FDA-GRAS rating (“generally recognized as safe”) have earned the product phenomenal acceptance in many diverse chemical applications. Citrus Solvent can be used in its pure form, or blended with most other solvents and drying oils.▫ Citrus Natural Solvent is the major component of the oil extracted from citrus rind. When citrus fruits are juiced, the oil is pressed out of the rind. This oil is separated from the juice, and distilled to recover certain flavor and fragrance compounds. The bulk of the oil is left behind and collected as “food grade” citrus oil. After the juicing process, the peels are conveyed to a steam extractor. This extracts more of the oil from the peel. When the steam has been condensed, a layer of oil then floats on the surface of the condensed water. The result is technical grade citrus solvent, which is the main ingredient in our Citrus Solvent.▫ In the past decade, the use of citrus natural solvent has expanded tremendously. Much of the product goes into making paint solids, used into impart an orange fragrance to products, and used as a secondary cooling fluid. But the largest growth segment has been the use of citrus solvent in cleaning products. This has occurred in both industrial uses and in household/institutional products. Citrus solvent can be used either as a straight solvent, or as a water-diluted product.▫ As with most organic solvents, citrus natural solvent is not water-soluble, so it can be used in ordinary water separation units. With a KB value of 67, citrus solvent has solubility properties close to that of CFCs. This fact, combined with the environmentally-friendly and non-toxic nature of the substance, is a clear indication that it is a much better alternative to typical caustic mineral spirits or paint thinners. Straight citrus solvent can be used as a wipe cleaner, in a dip bath, or in spray systems as a direct substitute for most other organic solvents.

    ♡ Description ▫ Tung Oil is a hard drying wood oil that provides a lustrous and beautiful finish. It resists marring, penetrates well, and is environmentally friendly. Our tung oil is 100% pure and of the highest quality you’ll find. It’s all-natural, food safe, and creates a matte finish. FDA approved for food contact. ▫ The Tung Oil offered by Real Milk Paint is a 100% pure oil meaning it comes without any heavy metals, additives, or distillates. Most other oils can be anything from a thinned down varnish to polymerized tung, and most have petroleum distillates added. Ours will not build a gloss finish or heavy finish but will penetrate deeply into the wood to enhance character and water resistance while creating a great wood finish. ▫ This makes our pure tung oil perfect for uses such as wood counter tops, bowls, butcher blocks, cutting boards, chopping blocks, outdoor furniture, decks, wood siding, wood flooring, concrete, brick and just about any porous surface that needs an environmentally friendly product. ▫ We guarantee our Tung Oil is ASTM Quality Tested to be light in color with the highest amount of reactive sites to ensure drying and a great wood finish. We use only the freshest, highest quality product. All of our oils are “fresh” pumped from a drum just before shipping. Continue below for more information on Pure Tung Oil, including advantages, properties and characteristics, and in-depth directions for use.    ♡ Advantages ▫ Zero VOC’s ▫ All Natural means “Green” ▫ Freshness Guaranteed (fresh pumped daily)! ▫ Best Available, Grade 1 yellow ▫ Naturally polymerizing finish ▫ Cures by oxidation, not evaporation ▫ Does not form a glossy finish no matter the number of coats ▫ Form a flexible waterproof finish ▫ Resists abrasion and acids ▫ Does not blister and peel (properly applied) ▫ Does not mold like linseed oil ▫ Long shelf life (will last for years, properly sealed) ▫ Does not darken with time like linseed oil ▫ Concentrated (thin one to one, doubles the coverage) ▫ Combined with “Citrus Solvent” makes an all-natural finish ▫ FDA approved for food contact ▫ Does not go rancid ▫ 7 to 10 days partial cure, 15 to 30 days full cure ♡ Properties and Characteristics ▫ All natural finish that is water and alkali resistant and offers a protective barrier. ▫ Will not darken with age as other finishes will. ▫ It resists marring, penetrates well, elastic and unlikely to check. ▫ It builds quickly, consolidates the wood surface, and builds a transparent matte finish. ▫ It will not mildew or bleed like linseed oil when dry which makes it an excellent candidate for outdoor finishes. ▫ It should be kept in an airtight container with minimum airspace. ▫ It contains no thinners or driers and has a light nutty odor. ▫ A Pure Tung Oil finish mixed with Citrus Solvent is an all-natural organic finish that is environmentally safe and food safe.   ♡ Coverage ▫ Sample oz. covers 1 sq. foot ▫ 8 oz. covers 25 sq. feet ▫ 16 oz. covers 50 sq. feet ▫ 32 oz. covers 100 sq. feet ▫ Gallon covers 400 sq. feet ▫ Example: One Gallon would cover 400 sq. feet one time. ♡ Directions for Use ▫ There are four phases when it comes to using Pure Tung Oil for your projects. - Preparation - Application - Curing - Maintenance   ♡ Preparation ▫ Be sure the surface of your project is free of dust, debris, or grime. ▫ Check to see if the surface is porous. (Pure Tung Oil works by absorbing into the material and filling the open pores. Therefore, if your material is not porous, it will not accept Pure Tung Oil. To test if your surface is porous or not, place a small amount of water on the surface. If the water absorbs, it is porous. If it does not and beads on the surface, you may need to sand and/or strip the surface.) ▫ If you need to sand your surface, we recommend not going above 220 grit sandpaper. Too high of a sandpaper grit will “polish” the surface, hindering proper absorption of Pure Tung Oil. ▫ If stripping your surface is needed, we recommend using Soy Gel: Paint and Urethane Stripper. ▫ If you are looking for a darker color finish, take a look at our Dark Tung Oil. ▫ We recommend using water or alcohol-based stains on the wood before the Pure Tung Oil is applied. Most oil-based stains should be avoided as they tend to seal the wood and prevent absorption of the Pure Tung Oil. ▫ Quick Tip: DO NOT use a wood conditioner. This will seal the wood and prevent the tung oil from absorbing. ▫ You can thin Pure Tung Oil with a variety of thinners. If you are doing a project where you want to use natural, food contact safe products, try Citrus Solvent. NOTE: Most projects DO require this thinning. Only very old, dry wood or concrete tend to use unthinned Pure Tung Oil. ▫ Don’t want to deal with the hassle of thinning it yourself? Look no further than our Half & Half! Pre-mixed Pure Tung Oil and Citrus Solvent mean you can use it right from the bottle without any mixing!   ♡ APPLICATION ▫ When applying thinned Pure Tung Oil, here’s a handy thing to remember: Apply, Absorb, Repeat or Remove Apply – Apply the Pure Tung Oil to the surface. Absorb – Let the Pure Tung Oil absorb into the material. Repeat – Do what you just did, apply the oil and let it absorb. Remove – When the oil isn’t absorbing and pooling on the surface, remove it with a rag. Cure – Let the Pure Tung Oil go through its natural curing process. ▫ For the best results, you want to saturate the material with the tung oil to the point where a majority of the surface is no longer absorbing the oil. This will look like puddles on the surface even after waiting 40 minutes. Just like a sponge, the wood (or other porous surfaces) will only absorb so much oil before it can’t anymore. This saturation is achieved by doing multiple coats. ▫ You can apply Pure Tung Oil with a brush, rag, roller, or even a pump sprayer depending on your project and needs. We recommend brushes and/or foam rollers for most projects. ▫ Apply a generous first coat. ▫ Let the tung oil absorb into the surface, waiting if needed, up to 40 minutes. ▫ Apply another coat, let it absorb, and repeat the previous steps. ▫ Continue this process until you reach the desired amount of coats or have fully saturated the wood. You can tell the wood is saturated when the oil puddles on the surface and no longer absorbs oil across a majority of the surface. To be sure, wait 40 minutes. If the oil is still puddling, then you will know the surface is saturated. ▫ Taking a clean rag or cloth, remove any excess tung oil that is puddling or pooling on the surface. ▫ Hang those oil-soaked rags outdoors to dry. DO NOT pile the rags or put them in a container. ▫ For the best finish, we recommend letting this application rest and settle overnight. The following day, apply one or two more coats of Tung Oil to the surface of your project, following the same steps outlined above.   ♡ Curing ▫ Pure Tung Oil does not contain any additives to speed the drying process, such as heavy metallic dryers. Because of this, it can take up to 30 days to completely/thoroughly cure by its natural polymerization process. Provided below are some guidelines to follow during the curing phase. ▫ Pure Tung Oil cures best in warm, well-ventilated places. The warmer and more ventilated the area, the faster it will cure. ▫ Placing objects on the surface will “suffocate” and prevent the Pure Tung Oil from curing properly. If there is no airflow between the surface and the object, it should be removed until the curing is complete (30 days). ▫ During the first 7-15 days of curing, you can use the surface. However, you will want to avoid getting it dirty or allowing liquids to puddle on the surface. ▫ As the Pure Tung Oil cures, its durability and resistance to liquids and dirt will also increase. The first 7-15 days is when the oil is at its freshest and weakest state. After that point, increased regular use of the surface can take place. ▫ As Pure Tung Oil cures, it slightly expands and may push fresh oil back to the surface. Check for oil that may be seeping to the surface and remove it, if found, with a rag.

Outdoor projects may require more maintenance than indoor. Heavily used areas can be expected to require more maintenance than lightly used areas. Typically, surfaces that need maintenance have a very dry, or lackluster appearance compared to when the finish was originally applied.▫ When doing a maintenance coat you do not need to sand the surface again. Here is what we recommend;Make sure the surface is clean and free of dust or debris.Make a 2 to 1 ratio of solvent to Tung Oil (2 parts solvent, 1 part tung oil). This thinned mixture can easily find any open pores and fill them.Thinly apply this mixture using a clean cloth. Simply wipe it onto the surface, no need to lather it on.Wipe up any excess that may be on the surface with a clean, lint-free rag or cloth.Allow this thin coat to cure for 24 hours.Hang oil-soaked rags outdoors to dry.Go back to enjoying the surface like normal!

    Milk Paint - The Pink Collection, All Natural VOC-free Finish

    Milk Paint is an eco-friendly, food contact safe paint perfect for any project. Made from milk protein, calcium lime, natural pigment, and plant based filler, Milk Paint is entirely natural and environmentally friendly. Milk Paint works best for raw wood, but can also adhere to other porous surfaces (listed below) and finished wood.   This is our Pink and Purple Collection! If you would like to see our most popular colors, check out our Bestsellers Collection! If you are looking for a specific color, our other collections include Reds, Oranges, Yellows, Greens, Blues, Pinks and Purples, Whites, Grays, Blacks, and Browns.     Continue reading for more information on Milk Paint, including frequently asked questions and directions on how to use. If you have any other questions, please feel free to message us directly!   Frequently Asked Questions   ♡ Does Milk Paint have to be sealed? ▫ It is recommended that a sealer or finish is used to keep water or dirt from contaminating or dirtying the paint. ▫ While most wood finishes work, we recommend using Pure Tung Oil, Hemp Oil, or Carnauba Wax to finish the paint because all three are all-natural and VOC-free. If you would like to read more about Tung Oil or Hemp Oil, you can check out our Pure Tung Oil Listing.   ♡ Is Milk Paint safe to use outside? ▫ Yes! Milk paint works well outside and remains vibrant! ▫ To keep milk paint clean and preserved, it is recommended to finish. For the best outdoor sealant, we recommend Pure Tung Oil (for more information, check out our Pure Tung Oil Listing).   ♡ Is this safe for children’s toys or for children to use? ▫ Yes! This is entirely non-toxic, VOC-free, and is perfectly safe for children to be around. This paint is perfect for children’s toys because it soaks into the wood (instead of just creating a layer on top), protecting little ones from paint chips.   ♡ What does Milk Paint stick to? ▫ Milk Paint works best on raw wood, drywall, unsealed walls, unsealed brick, concrete or other porous materials the paint can soak into. It also works over old wood finishes. ▫ Milk paint does not stick well to new metal surfaces, plastics, or oil-base paints unless an additive, such as Ultra Bond, is mixed in. For more information on Ultra Bond, check out our Ultra Bond listing! ▫ No primer is needed for raw wood or other porous surfaces! ▫ When refinishing antiques, be sure the surface is very clean, a light sanding would be necessary. Tri-Sodium Phosphate can be used as a cleaner once the furniture is stripped. Directions for Use ♡ Preparation ▫ Make sure the surface is free of contamination, wax, grease, or oils. We recommend TSP (trisodium phosphate) as a cleaner. For painting over nonporous or previously finished surfaces always test for adhesion or use Ultra Bond to ensure adhesion. Real Milk Paint® is a natural product and sticks best to other natural, porous surfaces like raw wood, concrete, brick, terra cotta, etc. ▫ To remove conventional paints, we recommend Soy Gel. Or use Milk Paint Remover to strip away protein-based paints like milk paint.   ♡ Application ▫ Each Real Milk Paint® package contains the appropriate amount of powdered milk paint to create the stated amount of paint (sample, pint, quart, gallon). The recommended mixture is one part milk paint powder to one part water.   - Sample – 2 tbsp - Pint – 1.25 cups - Quart – 2.5 cups - Gallon – 10 cups   ▫ Remove the bag from the can. Measure the desired amount of Real Milk Paint® powder into the can. Add equal parts of water into the can (tap water can be used). For the best results, use warm or distilled water. Place the marble in the can. Securely place the lid on the can and shake for approximately 5 minutes. Let paint rest for 10-20 minutes so Real Milk Paint® powder fully dissolves in water. Repeat shaking steps if clumps are present in the milk paint.   ▫ Real Milk Paint® should have a creamy consistency. If the paint is too thin, add small amounts of milk paint powder, stirring and shaking as necessary. If the consistency of the paint is too thick, add small amounts of water into the mixture.   ▫ Stir frequently while painting. Apply with a natural bristle brush, painter’s brush, foam brush, or foam roller. Allow the Milk Paint to dry on the surface for 30 minutes (or until dry to the touch) before applying successive coats. For complete and even coverage, two coats are recommended.   ▫ Milk paint is naturally porous and if left unsealed may absorb dirt, greases, and stains. After the paint has dried, it can be sealed with a variety of finishes. Some of our recommendations include Pure Tung Oil, Hemp Oil, and Soft or Carnauba Wax. (For more information, see our Pure Tung Oil listing or Hemp Oil listing).   ▫ Milk Paint has a 3-year shelf life as a dry powder and 14 day-use after mixing with water. Dispose of unwanted milk paint in compost or by local disposal regulations. Clean up with mild soap and water.     ♡ Coverage SAMPLE - 2 sq. ft.
