If VOC's aren't your thing and you'd like to use organic based paint, you've come to the right place. We'll explain all the options that are available to you today. We'll also explain what each option is good for so you can decide if it's right for you.

What Are These Paints Made From

First, it's important to note that a paint can only be truly organic if it's made from natural ingredients. These ingredients can include things like water, plant oils and dyes, minerals like chalk and clay, essential oils, mineral dyes, etc.

Real Milk Paint - Natural Paint

Real Milk Paint - Organic Paint

Real Milk Paint

This organic paint is made from 100% organic materials. It's made with milk protein, lime, clay, and earth. It can be used on raw wood, plaster, dry wall, stone, brick, and concrete. It comes in a decent variety of colors that can be mixed further to create additional colors that will suit your taste.

If you use Real Milk organic paint, you might be a little bit surprised when you receive it because it doesn't come in a can like you are probably used to. Instead you'll receive a box of powder that you'll have to mix with water to make the paint.

While Real Milk Paint can be used successfully for about any application, it works best for people who are looking for an "old world" type finish.

This paint costs between $46.00 for enough mix to make a gallon of paint.
