General Finishes Milk Paints

Milk Paints are the star of the furniture fashion market. They are interior/exterior acrylic paints suitable for indoor or outdoor furniture, crafts, and cabinets and can be applied directly from the can to produce a high quality satin sheen finish. When used with Glaze Effects, you can create all the new decorative finishes such as distressing, antiquing, marble effects, rag rolling, or color washing. High use flat surfaces such as dining tables and desks will develop the patina of every day life over time so we recommend clear or wood stain finishes to our customers who are patina-adverse. Milk Paints can be used alone or mixed with any other product in the General Finishes Water Based line, including Wood StainsCountry Colors, andTopcoats.
Milk Paints are available in the following colors: Snow White, Antique White, Linen, Millstone, Outback Brown, Little Pink, Buttermilk Yellow, Somerset Gold, Sage Green, Bayberry Green, Basil, Cypress Green, Red Pepper, Autumn Haze, Brick Red, Tuscan Red, Baby Blue, Federal Blue, Coastal Blue and Lamp Black.

PolyAcrylic Blend Top Coat

This crystal clear finish is rated by Fine Woodworking magazine as "Best Brush-on" in a competition of national brands. It is our standard "work horse" top coat and can be used in furniture and woodwork. Formulated to be durable and consumer friendly, it flows and levels easily and has great adhesion characteristics. It has strong sag resistance for vertical surfaces and its higher polyurethane content provides greater durability than other polyurethane/acrylic blends. Once you use PolyAcrylic Blend you will say to yourself, "Fine Woodworking was right on!"  Available in the following sheens: Satin, Semi-Gloss, and Gloss.

GF High Performance Polyurethane Top Coat

Winner of Fine Woodworking's Best Overall Choice Award, High Performance Top Coat is the hardest, most durable consumer polyurethane top coat on the market today. It contains all the consumer friendly characteristics of PolyAcrylic Blend. In addition it contains a UV Stabilizer to protect it from breaking down in sunlight and to protect the underlying stains from fading. And with its pure polyurethane durability, it can even be used on floors. This is the most durable product. Available in the following sheens: Satin and Gloss.

GF Sanding Sealer

Sanding Sealer is a water base acrylic basecoat. It provides initial sealing for all GF water base topcoats. It can be used over raw wood or a stained surface. Sanding Sealer has been sterated so it will sand easier. Sanding Sealer is not as durable as the topcoats so it is not recommended for a final finish. Drying Time: 1-2 hours under normal conditions.
