Milk, Clay and chalk paints
Natural Media Experts uses several different kinds of natural paints depending on how long the prints needs to last.
Our favourite natural paint is milk paint as it is easy to work with and last from a few weeks to a few months.
We import milk paint from The Old Fashioned MilkPaint Company in the USA who have developed several products that are perfectly suited for urban printing.
The Old Fashioned MilkPaint Company products are certified by the FDA and are 100% biological.
When combined with a special eco-friendly coating, milk paint prints can last for several months.
For campaigns that need to last longer than 4 weeks, it’s recommended that prints are refreshed/maintained every 4-6 weeks.
Milk paints have been used for thousands of years. They come in powder form and are mixed with water. Hardeners can be added to the paint to make them last longer. Clear eco-friendly sealers can be used on top of the paints for even longer lasting prints

Clay paints are powdered paints that are mixed with water and applied using a latex sprayer or by brush. Naturally colored pigments can be added to create a variety of colors
Water-based chalk paints are either sprayed or applied using a brush. Pigments can be added to create natural colors.
