This is the perfect paint for furniture and interior walls, especially for those that want to avoid chemical fumes in their home. Though I found this in "The Natural Formula Book for Home and Yard" by Dan Wallace, he credits his source as being the original edition of "Dick's Encyclopedia of Practical Receipts and Processes" published in 1895. This reminds me of the mix that my grandfather used to make, though I really don't know how close it is. Note that this is a translucent finish, perfect for letting the wood grain shine through, as is so popular today. Please try a small batch on a test piece of wood for best results. NOTES: It is lime and not the fruit limes (but this format will not let me enter it in singular form). Do not use spoiled milk. The Spanish white is also known as commercial whiting.
