Simulated Milk Paint

Olde Century Colors paints have been formulated to lead the renaissance of 18th and 19th century architectural interest with unsurpassed quality and color selection.

Olde Century Colors Simulated Milk Paint attempts to recreate the historic colors of the 18th and 19th centuries. Paints of the era were a mixture of milk, lime and naturally occurring pigments. This produced a pallet of colors based on berries for brighter colors, clays for earth tones and lamp soot for black. For recreating furniture or architectural components from the 1700’s or 1800’s, the paint can be applied at its standard, undiluted rate of 400 square feet per gallon.

Milk Paints are produced in dye lot batches and all pigments are ground at the factory into a pre-mixed formula. The depth of color in the simulated milk paints provide vibrant, strong hues.

If a more transparent finish that allows the wood grain to show through, the paint can be diluted with water and applied as a stain.

A clear varnish, Briwax or Briwax Shellac Sanding Sealer is suggested if the item will be handled frequently. For an antique look a crackle finish can be applied using the milk paint as both the first coat and as the top coat applied under the crackle medium.

Prior to painting, we recommend that all surfaces be clean, dry and dull.

Available in 2 oz. bottle, Pint, Quart and Gallon sizes.

Painted Brick

To paint or not to paint. That is the question.

And when it comes to brick, it’s a difficult question to answer. The joy of brick is in the material itself. Hard-wearing and low-maintenance, brick doesn’t require a lot of effort to maintain but makes a definite statement. So why ruin it all by applying paint that will need to be reapplied every few years or so?

Natural Wood and Paint Together

Here’s a good looking use of color on this cupboard.  Try painting the majority of the piece with your favorite color and leaving part of the piece a natural color – of course, using Briwax on that natural part.

Painted CupboardIn Olde Century Colors paints, we have some beautiful blues – Cupboard Blue, Yankee Blue Salt Box Blue, Saratoga Blue, and Settlers Blue.

Use Light Brown Briwax, Tudor Brown Briwax or Rustic Pine Briwax over the entire piece to give the unpainted wood its color as well as to “soften” or age the paint.
