Milk Paint Stain is super easy to use! It’s made from the same ingredients found in our Milk Paint and you simply mix with water and apply to wood.

Milk Paint Stain is great for exterior decks chairs or furniture as it will never chip or peel. Over time slight wearing will occur with lots of rain on horizontal surfaces. Vertical surfaces are hardly impacted.

Many people custom blend colours together to create a custom shade variation. Any milk paint colour can be turned into a stain by following the stain mixing instructions.

After 3-5 years you can re-mix some stain and re-apply if needed.

There is no sanding required, no preparation work necessary.

Just mix, apply and seal!

How to Use Milk Paint Stain

Step 1. Preparation
Make sure that your project is free of any previous top coats so that the Milk Paint Stain can properly absorb into the surface. This may require that you remove the previous layers by sanding them away or using a Urethane Stripper.

Step 2. Staining
Mixture for Stain: Mix 3 parts water to 1 part powder. Mix with a blender, or stir by hand. The consistency will be very thin, like water. Apply with even strokes from end to end for consistency. The stain will completely dry in approximately 15 minutes.

Step 3. Finishing
Once you are satisfied with the application of your Milk Paint Stain you can gently sand with a 300 grit sand paper to smooth out any raised wood grain. Once you are satisfied, you may continue with your desired top coat. Hemp oil, tung oil or beeswax are all excellent top coat finishes that are 100% natural and food safe. The oil helps to seal and protect the surface and to saturate the Milk Paint so it appears vibrant and not chalky. Hemp oil and beeswax are recommended for interior applications. Tung oil is recommended for exterior. Two coats of oil is ideal and you’re done! A varnish or urethane may also be used.
