Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint

When Marian Parsons (our Founder) introduced this milk paint line in 2012, she had not dreamed that her idea to give a fresh face to an ancient paint would take off the way it has. The plans for this brand were small, but hundreds of retailer and thousands of customers believed in this curious powdered milk paint and the wonderful finishes we designed, making this a much bigger story.

It is now a story about a love of milk paint that is growing with each bag sold, each workshop taught, each piece of furniture that is transformed. It is a story that starts with natural ingredients, when it's mixed with water and the color of the pigments come to life, it becomes our very favorite paint in the world. We hope it becomes your favorite too.

Milk Paint is a powdered paint that has been around for thousands of years.  It was found in the pyramids in Egypt and on ancient cave paintings.  It’s been used in America for years on furniture, walls, barns, etc.  It is a versatile paint that can be used to achieve a variety of looks from chippy and distressed to smooth and sleek.


This fine museum-quality wax is based on an old family recipe. It’s made with beeswax and a little carnauba wax, then lightly tinted to a rich brown. Antiquing Wax is perfect for creating an authentically aged finish on a piece of painted furniture. It is easy to apply, provides a durable finish with a beautiful luster and has almost no odor.
