Description (expand for details)

Sweet Pickins is the exact same formula as the original Old Fashioned Milk Paint line, but offers additional exclusive updated and trendy colors as well as boutique style packaging.

Sweet Pickins Milk Paint is a true milk paint which comes in a powder form, is environmentally safe, non-toxic and food safe. There is a slight milky odor when it is applied, but it is completely odorless when dry.  Sweet Pickins Milk Paint is 100% VOC free and is made with all natural earth materials.

  • 2 oz. sample – covers approx 12 sq ft.
  • 6 oz. pint – covers approx 36 sq ft.
  • 12 oz. quart – covers approx 72 sq ft.
  • 48 oz. gallon – covers approx 288 sq ft.

Full instructions on how to use our paint are included on the packaging. To make the paint, simply mix the powder with warm water.  How far the paint goes will depend upon painting technique, how thick/thin the paint is mixed, how many coats are applied, and the contrast between the color being painted compared to the piece being painted.

For non-porous or previously finished/painted piece, the use of Extra Bond will be needed prior to Milk Paint application. Sweet Pickins Extra Bond will ensure adhesion and give you better control over chipping.  It is highly recommend to always have Sweet Pickins Extra Bond or Fusion Mineral Paint's Ultra Grip when using any Milk Paint.  Unpredictable results may occur on non-porous surfaces when not using Extra Bond. 

Because milk paint comes in a powder form, you can control how thick/thin you mix the paint. You can use it as you would regular paint, thinner for a wash/stain or thicker to create texture.

Many variations in color and texture naturally occur on milk painted pieces and this is completely normal.  These unique variations which only come with true milk paint, add depth and dimension to each project.

Milk Paint can naturally chip or crackle when applied over some existing finishes.  This can result in an authentic look reminiscent of a chippy/aged/timeworn piece of furniture.

Sweet Pickins Milk Paint colors can be mixed together to achieve your own custom colors.  You can also add white to lighten or black to darken.  Remember to keep your ratios if you want to recreate the color!

Sweet Pickins Milk Paint can be top-coated with any available product on the market, we have several options for you here!  To protect milk paint from water spots and make it easier to clean, it should be top coated.

You can use the same techniques for distressing and glazing milk paint as you would any other paint.  Don’t be afraid to experiment!
