Milk Paint VS Mineral Paint

It’s all about discovering the benefits to each, looking at the key differences, and considering the project and end result you’re after. But before we look at what makes these two paint styles different, let’s talk about what you’ll find with all Fusion paints.

First and foremost, all of our paint is completely VOC-free so you can feel good about bringing these non-toxic formulations into your home. Both paints offer a durable, premium finish that will bring that wow factor. And as always, all of our paint is made and poured by hand in Canada.

Milk Paint by Fusion – our newest launch under the Fusion family! When creating our new Milk Paint brand, we wanted to flip the perception of this paint on its head! Many think of Milk Paint as being not durable, only creating a stain effect, or only giving a rustic look, well get ready to meet endless possibilities with Milk Paint by Fusion! While milk paint has been around for a really long time (and for good reason), we wanted to add our own unexpected twist. Milk Paint, made modern.

Milk Paint comes in powder form – just add water, stir and apply. This is a beautiful thing because it’s simple to do but makes a difference because it means you’re in control of how much or how little paint you want to use. Go ahead and store any left over powder for your next project!

Milk Paint also has a thinner consistency than most paints but has amazing coverage. Again, depending on how much water you add, you can achieve a different look. For example, you make any paints a stain (bonus!) by simply adding more water. 


Although it comes with a few more steps, it’s all about diving in, having fun and getting creative.
