Milk Paint

Milk Paint was developed by the gang from General Finishes for many uses - from a clear, bright contemporary look to old fashioned painted furniture with a good range of color that could be extended by the user. If you like chalk paints or true milk paints, try pre-mixed Milk Paint from GF.

Not a true "milk paint" (there is no milk in it) but a modern version of old world paint with a strong mineral base, it is fabulously adaptable & UV resistant. Milk Paint can be used indoors or out & applied to furniture, crafts, and cabinets. Easy to use - consumers can hand apply or professionals may spray. It is the furniture paint with soul.

You can mix it, lighten it, distress it, glaze it, layer different colors, antique it - perfect for upcycling or repurposing furniture. Available in 28 mixable colors.

Gel Stains

This is the home of the popular Java Gel stain that has been featured across the nation's social media for repurposing & upcycling furniture and cabinets. Gel stain that has the most "finishing feel" of all our products. Woodworkers love the lustrous finish that shows up when rubbing out the 2nd and 3rd coats. Gel Stains are formulated with a combination of pigments, oils, and urethanes to produce a durable and beautiful "hand-rubbed" finish.

Gel Stains are heavy-bodied, and so do not penetrate as deeply into the wood as liquid oilbase stains do. Because of this, they are often less affected by the condition of the wood, and can help you get a more even appearance on difficult woods such as aspen or pine.

COLORS: American Oak, Antique Walnut, Brown Mahogany, Candelite, Colonial Maple, Georgian Cherry, Golden Pine, Java, New Pine, Nutmeg, Prairie Wheat.
