Nestlé Carnation NonFat Dry Milk and McCormick Food Coloring. American colonists used to paint their homes with milk. They would boil berries in milk, which would thicken and color the milk. That’s why so many houses in New England have that whitewashed look. Today, thanks to modern technology, we have the miracle of Nestlé Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk. Just mix one and one-half cups Nestlé Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk and one-half cup water until it is the consistency of paint, then add food coloring or pigment (available at art supply stores) to make whatever hue you desire. Once milk paint dries, it is incredibly durable. It won’t wash off. Plus, you can have milk and cookies while you paint. Just try doing that with regular latex.
