General Finishes Milk Paint is pre-mixed and very similar to latex paint. You do not need to strip (the furniture), sand, or prime before painting. A quick wipe down suits most pieces, and you’re ready to go. This is an extremely durable paint. We do recommend a top coat for horizontal surfaces that are exposed to heavy use such as table tops or dressers.
General Finishes Chalk-Style Paint is also pre-mixed, and similar to a latex paint in smoothness and texture. You do not need to strip (the furniture), sand, or prime before painting. A quick wipe down suits most pieces. This paint covers well, is a bit thicker and offers more texture. It is more flexible and well-suited to a variety of distressing techniques. You do not need to wax this paint, however a top coat is strongly suggested for surfaces such as dressers and table tops. General Finishes top coats work well with this paint in place of wax, and offer a matte, flat, satin and gloss finish.
