Natural Paint Recipes



Nearly all these paint recipes were taken from "The Natural Paint Book" ( ISBN 0-87596-914-3) which I really cannot say enough good things about. I think everybody should have it on their bookshelf. Some of the recipes were corrected where imperial and metric units did not agree.

Keep stuff together

The binder is the "glue" that keeps all the stuff in paint together.


About oils and waxes

More for wood finishes than walls.


The colorant

Only a small percent of paint is pigment. But it's what gives it color.


Milk Paint Recipes - and others

All the natural and mailk paint recipes can be found here.


Network resources

Where to find stuff.


Use with care

Nasty buggers those solvents. Used in producing oil based paints.


About wax

An important natural finish.
