What is milk paint?

– Basically, milk paint is made up of milk protein, lime and then natural pigments from the earth to color the paint.  True milk paint comes in a powder form and must be mixed with water.

– Milk Paint is 100% VOC free and is truly a green paint.  It can be used on anything from walls to furniture, metal, glass, concrete, masonry and bare wood.

The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co has been producing and selling milk paint since 1974 and is the oldest manufacturer of true milk paint.   The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co  is the manufacturer of  Sweet Pickins Milk Paint!

Caring for your Cling On!

Important! DO NOT remove the strings at the base of the round and oval brushes. This helps the brush keep its shape.

Let your CLING ON! absorb some water before using it for the first time, so it gets the proper flex.Soak the bristles in water for approx 20 minutes before first use. Remove excess water by spinning the handle between your hands and it’s ready for use.

While painting, re-wet the brush as necessary. Keeping the brush damp will prevent paint from hardening on the bristles and minimize brush strokes.
When you’re done painting give your Cling On a quick rinse then just stand it in a container keeping the tips in water (preferably hanging so the tips are not touching the bottom). The filaments are specially treated to release the paint. The next day almost all paint will have left the brush. Just rinse, spin out the remaining water and you’re ready to paint again or store the brush. Refresh water daily.

Ideally, Cling Ons should be stored in a brush keeper, or similar device (empty pop-up wipes container with a few inches of water, even a large plastic soda cup with the brush handle pushed up through the straw opening) that allows the brush to not hit the bottom.
