How do I use Milk Paint? Do I have to mix it?
Does your paint have VOCs?All Fusion paints are Zero VOC (volatile organic compounds), and our Milk Paint is no different. We’re all about being eco-friendly, not having to worry about using products that are causing poor air quality in our homes and spaces. In today’s world, more people are aware of what they’re bringing into their homes, what products they’re using, but there’s still so many misconceptions out there between low VOC and Zero VOC. It’s important to distinguish – there are two completely different categories, and they are vastly different in the amount of VOC allowed. We are proud to say that Milk Paint has Zero VOCs, and when you’re working with it, it smells like clay.
