Most importantly, the Artisanal Milk Paint does not spoil, nor does it have a shelf life. Tightly sealed containers will preserve the paint for years.
The Artisanal Milk Paint can be thinned with water and tools are cleaned with water. Since the paint contains natural oils, the Artisanal Milk Paint conditions the bristle as the water rinses the paint from the brush.
Please note: If the painting surface has been previously covered with such lime based casein paint as The Real Milk Paint, Old Fashioned Milk Paint or Miss Mustard Seed's, then this type of surface needs to be sealed or primed first. The residual caustic lime will prevent the Sinopia Milk Paint from curing.
Each color is unique and has a physical presence, unlike any other paint available on the market. In order to fully appreciate the paint, try a 4oz. sampler or order a hand painter color card, in order to experience the paint in real life. Sample paint swatch cards can be ordered on the individual color pages. Simply select swatch, instead of a size container.
Custom colors can be blended to order with a minimum quantity of 1 Gallon. Please contact Sinopia for further information.
