for all your comments and
feedback! We've gotten a lot of
great responses from our
customers and here's what some of
them had to say.
"After having been an avid fan of your products for a number of years, I thought it was about time I dropped you a line to express my happiness with the Old Fashioned Milk Paint line and commend you on such superior customer service.
Before moving to Mt. Airy, NC, I taught Fine Woodworking in the Atlanta, GA area at places such as Highland Woodworking and others. The classes I gave on the use of your products and the amazing things that can be done were not only my favorite classes to teach, but never failed to draw overflow crowds.
I recall a time when yours was the only such product on the market. If imitation is the finest form of flattery, then you've certainly earned it with some of the other, certainly inferior, products that try to duplicate yours. Trust me, they all fail by comparison.
Your customer service and order fulfillment team must be commended as well. It seems that within moments of placing an order through your web site, a confirmation of shipment is received. Please express my appreciation.
I now find myself in the middle of restoring a 116-year old home here in Mt. Airy, North Carolina. I'm using your products to paint the kitchen cabinets. To say the results are breathtaking would be an understatement. I hope to be able to provide you with photos in the not too distant future."
Anthony S., Mt. Airy, North Carolina
I fell in love with this paint! I'm so angry at myself for attempting to create this look so many times in the past and failing. What a difference. I'm very excited for my order to get here and try out the new colors. Thanks again and have a great day."
Cy S., Casa Grande, Arizona
"I cannot remember who I talked to at your company, but they were a lot of help with my last job. I'm attaching a snapshot of the completed project. I am going to get better photos when I deliver the chest. Love your paint and friendly staff."
Gregory S., Banner Elk, North Carolina
"I think your paint is wonderful. I'm environmentally injured and cannot stand any kind of paint but yours."
Mary C., Upper Rawdon, Nova Scotia
"My wife and I decided to try Milk Paint (SafePaint) after spending hours at Lowe's and Home Depot trying to find a color that we liked. After about the 12th paint sample, we were wasting money on these samples, while getting nothing we liked. We then decided to contact your paint company as my wife was reading about organic paints. After speaking with a nice lady on the phone we quickly received paint samples in the mail and started to find the color we liked. It didn't take long as the paint mixed easily.
We were surprised that after the 1st coat we were wondering whether we needed a 2nd coat, the coverage was so good. We did add a 2nd coat and were extremely happy with the depth and texture of the paint. It looked and felt like a solid wall that was frescoed, as in Europe- not a standard American drywalled wall with a plasticee-latex feel. The richness is noticeable right away (pictures don't do it full justice).
We are so happy with the look and feel of the paint that we started planning the rest of the house. The ease of use surprised us too. We used a bucket that we usually use for car washing and then a stick blender that we usually use for making butternut squash soups. Everything cleaned up with a little water and even if you made a mistake and the paint dried some, then we just used a q-tip with hot tap water.
Your company makes a truly exceptional product that I think the average homeowner should consider more often in using. My brother, a contractor in the Seattle area even flew into town to see the results as customers have started asking him about organic paints. Thank you and my wife and I are hoping you will post this testimonial on your website."
Bret D., Public School Teacher, Arlington, Virginia
"As someone who is EXTREMELY sensitive to chemicals, I have the highest praise for your SafePaint because it enabled me to move back into my home as soon as the paint was dry.
This is miraculous because I am so sensitive to standard paints that sometimes I have been unable to enter recently painted premises for months after they dried, due to the lingering fumes of toxic chemicals.
After a recent flood in my home, the SafePaint was used to cover flat and glossy latex paints... and new DragonBoard (which was used instead of the customary chemical-laden drywall).
I THANK YOU for producing products that are healthy for people and the environment."
Barbara J.K., Irvine, California (author of "Behind the School Wall")
"We got our order of milk paint, all 160 pounds of it. yes pounds. Not gallons. It comes in powder form and you add the water. It is produced by The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Co. and their web site is the very clear MilkPaint.com.
They have a new line of paint called Safe Paint. I have to say I’m in love with it.
It is real paint.
It is the difference between eating over processed hormone packed Mc Donald’s food and a healthy organic meal.
And this paint is alive. It is made with a (casein) base, literally a derivative of milk. When you put it on the walls it smells of a country barn. It is a fresh smell of cut grass and healthy animals. The smell is faint but if you ever lived on a farm you know the smell. It is a smell that can literally bring you back to your childhood for an intoxicating moment.
The smell is gone in half an hour, though. And then there is nothing…..nothing. No smell……
You have to try it to see how powerful that LACK of smell is. And to think we have been putting chemicals on our walls for so many years. Petrochemicals laced with synthetic hormone disruptors and cancer causing ethers.
At Eco Brooklyn we have a motto. In fact we have many but one of them is that if we can’t build with a nine month old in the room then don’t build with it. Coincidentally my son is nine months old and he is with me a lot of the time. So I take this really seriously.
You can practically drink milk paint. I have no problems being in a freshly painted Milk Paint room with my son. I would never do that with the synthetic paints. Even the zero VOC stuff. It is still full of chemicals.
This is the real stuff. This is paint. It is free of chemicals. It is good stuff.
And the process is empowering. Never again will I wait at a counter so someone can read from a computer chart and mix my paint for me. Am I not able enough to mix my own paint and pick my own unique colors? Why do people need some famous person to put their name to 565 colors in order for me to pick my color.
The universe is full of millions of colors. And now that I can mix my own I am free to make my own unique color. Nobody in the world has a color exactly like the one we are painting onto the Green Show House in Brooklyn. In fact tomorrow we probably won’t be able to mix it again exactly. That is a special thing. I love it.
Take back your painting. Use Milk Paint.
First we mix the white base with water. Then we add the color as we want it. The paint goes on just like any other. You don’t need primer. You just put two coats of the paint. I dries really fast and the second coat can go on quickly.
We got a lot of colors. You want to follow these steps to be sure it works nicely. First put some water in the bucket. Then put the white base. This way none of the paint sticks in the corners of the bucket. Then add small quantities of the color until you get what you want. That way you don’t add too much color. Don’t froth the mix with the mixer because if you get too much air into the mix it bubbles and creates possible color inconsistencies.
We got five colors. Warm one for north facing rooms and cool ones for south facing rooms.
The genius of the Milk Paint Co is that they “only” provide a handful of colors. At first you might see this as odd when most paint companies are bending over backwards to provide huge color variations. But the other paint companies are stuck in the mass consumer idea that more is better and that the consumer can’t think for themselves.
With the colors that the Milk Paint Co provides you can mix your own plethora of colors. It is really, really liberating. I can’t understate that. You will discover that you are, like everyone, a very creative person. You will find your unique color. Or it will find you. Or you will find each other as you play alchemist above the cows white pot. It is a great thing."
Gennaro B., Brooklyn, New York (Note: read more about this project from EcoBrooklyn on our News page!)
"I just finished painting
my living room with SafePaint
yesterday, and I was so excited
by the results that I posted
pictures in my favorite
One point I made in the forum
is I think the SafePaint color
depth is even better than Farrow
& Ball (the reigning paint of
decorating divas). My sister did
her whole house in Farrow &
Ball, and to be honest, when I
saw it, I was a little
disappointed that it didn't floor
me. I wouldn't have looked twice
at her walls, even though the
colors are beautiful. But the
milk paint does have a special
presence that you notice when you
walk into the room. It makes you
say wow, look at the walls.
After reading about clay based
and environmentally friendly
paints, I decided to try milk
paint. I'd never used it before
and was nervous about painting
several rooms with it.
Well, it's fabulous! The color
is nothing like I've ever seen
before. It has a life to it, an
elegance, that latex doesn't
have. So far I've done two rooms,
and the color looks amazing in
all lighting. The color shifts
(as it does with all paints), but
it shifts well. The main
difference is it doesn't die out
in dim light or shadow, or go
ghastly in artificial light. It's
beautiful all the time. I can see
now why people rave over F &
B and full spectrum paints. The
milk paint has a similar effect.
Absolutely flat, it looks soft,
chalky & velvety. But is rock
hard & rough to the touch- a
bit surprising. I've never seen a
paint with such presence before.
The color palette is limited,
but I made the most gorgeous,
luminescent powdery gray/blue by
mixing 48 oz. of Oyster White and
3 oz. of Blue Green. And it was
fun to make my own color. In the
future, I'd like to experiment
with getting the milk paint base
and adding my own pigments.
Which reminds me: When testing
colors, I mixed 2 oz. of Salmon
and 1 oz. of Barn Red and got the
loveliest red shade: not too
cherry, not too fiery, just a
warm, deep fresh red.
Thanks very much. Very pleased
with your product."
M., Ridgefield, Connecticut
while back, you were kind enough
to send me some information on
your product. Well I used your
product and I love it! I wanted
to share with you the before and
after pics of my kitchen.
Our story is this:
A couple was going to purchase
a house from a builder as an
investment. During the process,
they chose to have oak cabinetry
put in the kitchen. The decline
in the housing market caused the
couple to walk away from the
investment and the builder was
left holding the property.
For months the house sat on
the market while others on the
same street were selling. I truly
believe potential buyers were so
put off buy the oak cabinets that
nobody wanted to touch the house.
Afterall, what a shame to want to
rip out the kitchen in a brand
I saw the house, knew the
cabinets could be "worked
with", and we got a steal of
a deal since it appeared nobody
else wanted it.
I bought about $200.00 in
paint, slapped some crown molding
on the cabinets and changed the
hardware. Now we have a new
kitchen we are so proud of. I
love it. Thanks Old Fashioned
"A year or
more ago you gave us a free
sample of your buttermilk-colored
paint for our walls. This email
is, first, an apology for never
sending you our testimony. There
really isn't a good excuse, so I
won't offer one!
This email, secondly, is our
praise for your product.
I am very sensitive to chemicals,
and for several years have been
quite sick on and off. My husband
and I have moved to a new house,
and we want to live our lives in
a way that is healthier for us
and better for the environment.
We spent hours researching paint
options! We found several
companies that provided latex
paints with fewer chemicals, but
we were discouraged by the
prospect of having to compromise
on our goals.
We were so excited when we found
your site! We couldn't believe we
had found paint without fumes or
smell or off-gassing, which is
good for the environment and high
quality! It didn't take much time
for us to place our order. Thank
you SO much for the paint.
My husband and I took two chilly
and humid half days to put two
coats on our kitchen and dining
room walls (over two coats of
Kilz, which we hope not to use
again). We couldn't believe how
much paint the mix produced (we
were able to paint more walls
than we had planned), or how fun
it was to mix and use it. Your
suggestion for using hardware on
a drill to mix the paint was
perfect, and the explanations of
what texture we should expect
were great. The paint dried as
predicted despite the humidity,
with no signs of the paint
underneath, and was easy to wipe
up when it was wet; even in the
places where it dried on our wood
floors, it came up with just
water, a sponge, and a little
'elbow grease.' (It didn't come
out of my clothes where I let it
dry, though. Oops!) The extra
paint was easy to store overnight
in a plastic paint container with
The paint went on smoothly and
evenly with a roller (and a brush
for the tight spots). The color
is creamy and a lot sweeter than
the name buttermilk implies! We
are very impressed that it evened
out the texture of our 'faux
wood' paneling. (I couldn't stand
the look of the paneling before,
but your paint makes the whole
room very pleasing to the eye.) I
believe the texture of the paint
was listed on the website as
'dead flat,' but we think you
need to find different
adjectives! The paint looks very
soft, and it actually makes the
walls seem to recede from the
eye, making some small spaces
look bigger. It unifies different
aspects of the whole room, tying
in the cabinetry, furniture, wood
floors, and wall hangings.
Kitchen messes and stains wipe
off fairly easily with a sponge
and water (even old stains).
There were a few places where we
let the paint drip (a tricky spot
by the vent hood), and after it
dried, it crackled a little bit.
Actually, we love the look where
the paint crazed! But some people
might not, so do let them know if
the thickness is very
inconsistent they might get those
We could not have made a better
decision than to use your paint
products. The mixing and painting
were fun and easy (and I was
indoors with the paint the whole
time without a single headache or
ill effect), the color is creamy,
bright, and clean, and the
finished product is one we've
been proud to show off as well as
live in. We already have the
colors for two more rooms picked
out, and we hope to order soon!
Thank you again for producing
high quality, healthy,
earth-friendly paints, and for
doing so with such good customer
service. (Thank you, also, for
your patience!) We hope your wall
paint line is a big success,
because we don't want to use
another wall paint again.
Thank you, OFMPC!"
wanted to write quick note to let
you know how pleased my husband
and I were to use your SafePaint
in our home. To give you a quick
background on us: I am currently
8 months pregnant and we also
have an amazon parrot as a pet.
Needless to say, I was very
concerned about painting in our
home for both my safety and the
well being of our parrot as well,
since parrots are extremely
sensitive to many things with
paint being at the top of the
list. I found your website and
was so happy to hear that the
paint was chemical free and had
very low odor.We purchased the
paint and my husband set up to
paint a bedroom in our 118-year
old home that will serve as an
office. I will say I was very
nervous that the paint would have
a foul odor and that the paint
would not adhere to the walls
that have been painted over
several times over the years. But
to my surprise and pleasure there
was virtually no odor. As you
state on your website, the smell
was just an earthy or milky smell
which went away within a half
hour. The SafePaint stuck to the
wall perfectly and only required
2 coats (which latex paint would
have required as well if not
more). And then the project was
finished. That night, you would
have never known that a room in
our house had been freshly
painted. I was so relieved for
myself but most importantly for
our parrot as well. We will
certainly be returning customers
for sure. Thanks so much for a
great and safe product!!!!"
B., Yardley, Pennsylvania
thanks to everybody there for
being so helpful and filling our
order for some 40+ gallons of
Snow White SafePaint and Clear
Coat on very short notice. We
painted all our ceilings and
walls with it over the weekend.
It was great! (We did call on
Saturday afternoon and left a
message. We were having trouble
with lumps, but finally figured
out some good tricks to mixing
smooth paint.) Thanks again for a
wonderful product and great
service! We are so happy to have
found you locally."
& Daryl B., Massachusetts
your ultimate testimonial.... I
was painting an old door in our
home and had a yogurt container
with the mixed blue paint on top
of my 70 gallon fish aquarium.
Well I am not sure how it
happened, but the paint went into
the tank (along with the brush).
The aquarium turned a deep rich
blue color, though I was
extremely worried about the
health of my fish. My wife
thought that I should take them
out, but from my experience with
aquariums, they seem to clean
themselves, so I left it. I was
simply amazed! 24 hours after
spilling the Milk Paint into my
fish tank, the color was about
gone and all the fish were
healthy as ever. The blue
eventually faded out completely
and the fish flourished. Since
then I have added about a dozen
new fish to my tank. Not only am
I more than happy with the
results of the paint on the old
door, but I am also amazed that
the paint is so non-toxic that
even a little neon tetra is
unscathed after swimming in it.
"Your product was exactly
what I was looking for. Its
coverage was amazing and it was
so easy to mix up and use. For a

crafts and faux painting. I
thought I would never be able to

paint. Suffice to say I will
never do that again! I'm totally
sold on your Milk Paint."

"Thank you for your
prompt response. You guys are on
top of your email- I wish we
could respond to customers as
well as you do. I await your
color chart. Since I mailed you
this morning, I found a local
source of Milk Paint. There is a
Woodcraft store in my vicinity
and it looks as though those cats
sell your stuff. Perhaps I'll
stop by there this week and check
them out. Again, thank you for
your customer focused attitude
and quick response."

"I ordered my paint
yesterday morning (Monday) and
have it in my hand already
(Tuesday) 11:30 a.m.! I cannot
tell you how happy and amazed I
am at your company's service. I
paint for a living and when I ran
out of paint on the weekend I
thought for sure I would be out
of commission all week. THANK YOU
SO MUCH! This is American
integrity at its best!"

"Your milk paint is
absolutely fabulous! I chose
Pitch Black for my first project
and could not be more satisfied
with the final product.
Naturally, being a first time
user I was a bit apprehensive and
nervous. But after applying just
a few strokes my uneasiness was
quickly diminished. I look
forward to painting manu\y more
fine pieces using your your
"Wow. I was asked to do a
sign for a restaurant I'd done
the interior for, and decided on
using your paint for an aged
look. I've never had a more fun
medium, one that does what I want
it to, mixes well to create a
nice palette with no mistakes,
cleans well and LASTS. I'm a
Horrible painter, because I'd
always been frustrated easily
with pigments that had a mind of
their own, but finally found a
paint that works for me."
"Thank you for being on
L., Kittery, Maine
to let you know that I used milk
paint for the first time and am
quite impressed. I painted old
plywood cabinets (after stripping
and sanding) with black and then
barn red milk paint and they are
beautiful. The wood grain shows
through. The first thing everyone
does is touch them. They all
comment on how they look like
cherry. I am extremely pleased
with my purchase and highly
recommend milk paint to everyone!
"I am blown
away by your product! Whenever I
painted a piece of furniture with
B. Moore, it looks like a painted
piece of furniture, brush marks
and all, unless I did a lot of
sanding. Meanwhile feeling sick
from the smell & dust, then
of course there is all this
leftover paint which I always
feel bad disposing of- wasteful
and environmentally unfriendly. I
put one coat of your milk paint
on, and my piece looks like a
master finisher did it! With no
sanding! No odor! No fumes! And
no waste! I will save the
leftover powder for the next
