WHY USE JUNKYARD GODDESS MILK PAINT?

Junkyard Goddess Milk Paint gives a beautiful finish to a variety of home décor items, from furniture to candle holders and everything in between. More importantly, it is 100% free of harmful chemicals, including volatile organic compounds (V0Cs). Traditional paints and many related products (such as paint thinner or stripper) give off VOCs. Emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids, VOCs include a variety of chemicals that may include toluene, xylene, ethyl acetate, formaldehyde, methylene chloride and glycol. These chemicals can lead to indoor air quality problems and pose serious health risks. VOCs are released when using paint products that contain them and, to some extent, when these products are stored.

HOW IS IT USED?

A number of tools may be used to apply milk paint – natural bristle or foam brushes, rollers, spray guns, etc. At Junkyard Goddess, the preferred method is a natural bristle brush, which works well to create an old-world, cottage style. When using the paint, stir every ten minutes or so and add more water as mixture thickens. It is recommend to mix only enough paint for the current project. However, unused (mixed) paint can be stored in the refrigerator in an air tight, sealed container for a few days. Mixture will thicken, so add water to attain the desired consistency for reuse. Milk paint (like any water-based paint) adheres best to porous surfaces, such as unfinished wood. If applying to a non-porous surface, light sanding will assist in adherence. Be aware, chipping of paint will likely occur if used directly on glossy surfaces. For improved adherence of paint, we recommend using Junkyard Goddess Magic Bond

HOW ABOUT FINISHING?

We use and recommended Daddy Van's Finishing Polish to protect the paint and add a lustrous finish. Daddy Van's is toxin-free and VOC-free, and is safe for people, pets and the planet. And it contains pure essential oils of lavender and sweet orange oil.

DESIGNED FOR CREATIVITY.

Junkyard Goddess Milk Paint is designed for creativity. Paints can be mixed together to create new tones, and they can also be layered to create dimensional color. The paint can be sanded off and “chipped up” to create a distressed look. Finished products can be enhanced with metallic glaze, glitter, and more. Don't be afraid to experiment and have fun. Remember, it's only paint and you can always change it!
