Premium Primer Paint

Price: 25.00

A premium primer designed for coverage and adhesion to standard surfaces. Not designed for stain blocking.

Our paints are fundamentally unique. While there are many zero VOCpaints on the market today, Green Planet Paints is the first to movebeyond petroleum toward a truly sustainable paint based on plant resinsand mineral pigments.

This is where Green Planet Paints is different. We have made three key choices in formulating our paint:
1. To move beyond petroleum, using plant-based binders and additives.
2. To minimize additives and not over-formulate, which not only createsmore synthetic products in our waste stream, but takes the life out ofthe paint.
3. To use mineral pigments that are produced with low energy processes,resulting in unique, lightfast colors, in a simple, easy to use colorpalette based on the colors of nature.

Things you should know about traditional paints:
* Human Health. Commercial paints can contain up to 1500 differentpetrochemicals, many of which are harmful. Most of these chemicals, butnot all, are regulated by the EPA using the term VOC (volatile organiccompounds.) This definition is somewhat misleading though, as not allharmful paint chemicals fall under the VOC definition. Furthermore, theEPA allows up to 5 mg/liter of VOCs in the zero VOC rating.
* Planet. VOCs not only contribute to smog, they are also potentgreenhouse gases. With the huge amounts of energy needed to drill,ship, and refine petroleum into components for paint, petroleum-basedpaints are simply not sustainable.
* Beauty. Petroleum-based paints, being synthetic and highlyprocessed, produce colors that lack natural complexity and all toooften look and feel lifeless.

Most paint companies, in attempting to green their paints, have focusedon the human health aspects, removing particular additives so as tomeet low and zero VOC criteria established by the EPA. Yet theirpaints are still petroleum-based, with pigment, binder and additiveremaining synthetic.

To fully appreciate the Green Planet Pain innovations, a brief reviewof modern paint and its history is helpful. Modern paint is composedof essentially four ingredients: pigment, binder, solvent and propertyadditives. Pigment provides the color, while the binder is the gluethat holds everything together. The solvent adjusts the consistency,and the additives improve how the paint mixes and flows. These fourtypes of ingredients combine to create a liquid that can be painted andwill adhere to a substrate. For thousands of years paints have beenmade from a wide variety of natural materials, such as lime, casein,linseed oil, chalk, clays, minerals and tree resins. Painters of oldmade their own paint according to local resources and their ownknowledge.

Then came petroleum. With the growth of the petrochemical industryafter World War II, the milk-based paints common at the time werereplaced with synthetic petroleum-based products. Pigments, resins andadditives were synthesized in the laboratory and mass produced infactories. Synthetic biocides allowed the easy preservation of thepaint in the can, so it could be stored indefinitely and shippedanywhere. This new synthetic paint eventually became the acceptedstandard for house paint. But as weve come to learn, along with theconvenience came a number of costs: to human health, planet, and beautyof the finish.

Clear Coat

Price: 13.95

Clear Coat is a water-borne acrylic. When applied over Milk Paint it protects the paint finish against water-spotting, dirt and abrasion. It also increases scrubbability.
It is preferred by custom furniture builders, interior designers, craftsmen and do-it-yourselfers. It is environmentally safe and non-toxic and has no odor when dry.
Applications: Clear Coat is used as a finish top-coat over Milk Paint. It can also be used as a natural finish for wood applied directly to surfaces such as bare wood, plywood, and other surfaces. Can be used for furniture, woodwork, etc. Safe to use on children's toys. Clear Coat (or similar acrylic sealers) will not protect against certain kitchen oils such as grease splatters and olive oil spills, therefore an oil-based sealer is recommended for such surfaces as kitchen cabinets. For floors and other surfaces expected to receive heavy wear we recommend the use of a more durable top-coat specifically designed for that purpose.
Coverage: Pint covers 25 sq. ft., Quart covers 50 sq. ft. and one Gallon covers 200 sq. ft.
Advantage:
1). Can be used for interior applications Long shelf life;

Antique Crackle

Price: 14.50

Antique Crackle is a natural liquid gelatin. Using Antique Crackle is an easy way to achieve a weathered or "alligatored" look on furniture, picture frames, signs, etc.
It is preferred by custom furniture builders, interior designers, artists, craftsmen, and do-it-yourselfers. It is biodegradeable and non-toxic, brushes on easily and dries to a clear satin finish.
Applications: Antique Crackle can be used with either Milk Paint or some other water-based finishes. It is applied over a dried newly painted surface before the final coat and causes this final coat of paint to crackle. It can also be applied directly to clean surfaces such as bare wood, primed metal, glass, wallboard and previously painted or varnished surfaces.
The final coat of Milk Paint is applied after the crackle is dry. It can also be used as a crackle "glaze", creating a clear, crackled topcoat over bare wood or paint. For this effect a clear water-based finish such as our Clear Coat is applied over a layer of Antique Crackle.
Advantages:
1). Works with either Milk Paint or some other water-based finishes Adheres to most clean surfaces;
