Is Cornish Milk Mineral Paint a "milk paint"?

Cornish Milk Mineral Paint's unique Mineral formula is NOT a Milk Paint. It has milk in the name because the finish has been created to replicate traditional milk Paint, but with all the advantages of a durable pure acrylic formula. This natural and vegan paint formula has been hand made from high-grade acrylic-resin and natural Cornish earth/mineral pigments, which produce the most striking colours that look beautiful and authentic.

Do I need to prepare my surfaces?

Cornish Milk Mineral Paint requires very little preparation due to its unique mineral formula which includes a high adhesion primer and additional gripping agent.

In some cases, the only preparation needed is a thorough clean. Grease and dirt are the causes of most ruined paint finishes.

However in cases with a high gloss finish, we recommend giving the surface a light sand/key, using a high grit sand paper. We recommend a 120 grit as this will be fine enough not leave your furniture with heavy sanding marks. Once sanded, make sure to clean off all dust with a damp cloth.

Preparation is the key to longevity. For every brand of paint, the more work you put into prep, the more years your finish will last. Some brands, Like Cornish Milk Mineral Paint, just require less prep!

Can Cornish Milk Mineral Paint be distressed and aged?

Yes! However Cornish Milk Mineral paint adheres to surfaces much stronger than traditional chalk paints, due to its high grade acrylic-resin content, so we strongly recommend that if you want a distressed/rustic finish, start the distressing process soon after the item is touch dry, as once the paint has cured, distressing through the paint will be a tough job!

Cornish Milk Mineral Paint has been made with modern living in mind. In most cases, depending on application method, Cornish Milk Mineral Paint takes just 7 days to cure. Once cured, the paint finish becomes scuff resistant and ultra durable, due to the paints unique formula which contains a built in top-coat.
However, if you did accidentally scuff or scratch your finish before it had cured, simply wipe down the scuff with a damp cloth and re-apply a small coat to the area.  Cornish Milk Mineral Paint has the fantastic ability of self levelling which will settle into the scratch, and dry smooth.
