Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint

 Milk Paint is an ancient paint containing just five simple ingredients - milk protein (casein), limestone, clay, chalk and natural & non-toxic synthetic pigments. When absorbed into the surface, Milk Paint will never chip or peel when applied to a raw wood surface. It is suitable for both interior and exterior applications and is naturally mold resistant. Milk paint provides a completely breathable coating and is ideal for painting wood, plaster, drywall and a variety of other surfaces.  It is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and contains no VOCs.

About Us


We all do it.. dream! We dream of a world or home where the list of odd jobs and projects are done. 

Reality.. we all know that is very unlikely to happen. Why don't you pick one or two items on that list and come in to talk out ideas and options on how to best achieve what you're looking to do. We'd love to help!


Sign up for one of our many workshops on the schedule. Start with an instructional class where you are introduced to the paint basics. Dive in with a 'make & take' class where you join others in creating your own little masterpiece. There truly is something for everyone! 


Stop in, grab a coffee and let's chat about all your wonderful projects. Stuck on an idea or a color? We can help! Talking about your projects often times helps all in itself.


No upcoming events.
