Now I’m sure you’ve heard of low-VOC paints. Unlike most paint found at Home Depot, low-VOC paint has a fraction of the toxic chemicals that are released into the air and into your lungs, not only while the product is in use but long after the paint has dried. Real Milk Paint has zero Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and is your alternative to even a low-VOC option. The paint is actually made from milk cultures that are then combined with pigments “harvested in a traditional manner and are completely safe, eco-friendly, non-toxic, lead free and not radioactive.” Headquartered in Quakertown, PA, it’s easy to order over the phone and will arrive within 2 days. Woodcraft off Cromwell Blvd. in Towson also carries a selection of milk paint.
