Anne Thibeau - President

In 1974 The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company revived an ancient formula for genuine, organic milk paint. Packaged in powdered form to avoid preservatives, it is easily mixed with water before application. With virtually no odor and zero VOC’s, it is widely used by people with multiple chemical sensitivities. It is available in twenty deep, rich colors that are steadfast, will not fade, and may be blended to create a wealth of other colors. It has a velvety appearance and a presence rarely found in modern, chemically based paint.
