Italian Marble Paint - 1 gallon
Redefining traditional milk paint, Italian Marble Paint (Vega Paint) is made with vegetable casein directly derived from plants, rather than milk casein. Still based on ancient milk paint recipes, Vega Paint has been refined to be dairy free, making this paint more ecological and odor-free compared to traditional milk paints. Made from natural, non-toxic ingredients and 100% VOC-free, Vega Paint is a vegan paint that is shipped as a dry powder, is easy to use, wipe-resistant, and provides excellent coverage.
Vega Paint features a diverse and inspiring palette of colors with a velvety smooth matte finish. With choices including White Vega Paint derived from pure Italian marble for a natural, harmonic white, or select any of our Straight-from-Nature colors in one of three shades artfully blended for an outstanding and unforgettable effect. Primarily developed for indoor applications, the Vega Paint matte finish is suitable for use on absorbent surfaces such as plaster, stone, concrete, wallpaper, drywall, and fibrous plaster boards. Untreated absorbent surfaces should be primed with Vega Primer. Vega Paint is not recommended for certain permanently humid surfaces, including kitchens and bathrooms. Use Unearthed Lime Paint for these applications. Vega Paint can be applied with rollers, brushes, and airless sprayers.

How to Use:
Ships as a dry, white powder. Add water and mix with a paint stirrer attachment for an electric drill or a hand held kitchen mixer. If you want tinted paint, just mix in the pre-measured powdered pigment packet. Dissolve the pigments in water and then stir into the paint using a paint stirrer attachment for an electric drill or a handheld kitchen mixer. Allow the liquid paint to rest for 30 minutes. After resting, stir thoroughly once more and apply. Vega Paint can be applied with a roller, brush, or airless spray gun. Once mixed, Vega Paint should be used the same day as it contains no chemical preservatives and will spoil if not applied.
Wet Vega Paint is several shades darker than the finished dry paint. Vega paint will appear blotchy and somewhat transparent as it dries, but will create an opaque and uniform finish when dry.
