Zero VOC Paint
|Ella's Room Before|
From what I have read, Low or Zero VOC paints are the closest to traditional paint. If you don’t mind a look that is a bit different than the dense coverage of traditional paint, here are a few other options:
Clay paints are made from earth based materials and water. These paints cover well and absorb odors but color choices are limited to more earthy tones and can be a bit pricier than traditional paints.
Lime Wash is made of limestone and water. This option can be tinted in a variety of colors but takes several coats and can only be used on surfaces such as brick, wood, plaster, and concrete.
Milk Paint is non-toxic paint made with milk protein, lime, clay and earth pigments. This option is similar to clay paint options.
There are many more options available and I found this website with various brand recommendation for each type of paint. http://eartheasy.com/live_nontoxic_paints.htm The site also contains information on paint strippers and eco-painting tips as well.
I especially liked this one:
