Has anyone purchased any natural based paints or NO VOC paints that they are happy with? - Page 2

post #21 of 24

We are happy with Mythic, and have also had good luck with Benjamin Moore's 0 voc paint. I still think both smell bad when going on, but the smell fades quickly.

Mythic is one of the only paints that is truly NO VOC.  The advertised big name brands, Ben Moore and Sherwin Williams etc., are not actually No VOC and mostly not low voc either.  The base paint is no or low voc, the pigment is regular voc paint, making your then no voc base pretty much high voc as soon as you color it.  We did much research and found Mythic to be the best out there right now.

 

ETA:  This was about 6-8 mos now.  It looks like BM has a new paint out, Natura?  Will have to look into that.  I know the old paint they advertised as no voc, had voc in the coloring.  Just make sure to really ask questions when you are buying no voc paint. ;)

I was in BM last week, and they told me that their colours no longer have VOCs in them.  I didn't ask since when, and I didn't make any phone calls to confirm (it was the sales man that told me this).

 I've used Sherwin Williams' Harmony, Pittsburg Paint's Pure Performance, and Graham Aqua Bourne Ceramic. I thought the Harmony was really runny and drippy and a pain to apply, but I was happy with it once it was up and didn't have any trouble with peeling. I used it in a bathroom and a child's room.

 

The Pure Performance was fine - much thicker than the Harmony, so it was easier to apply, and it has stayed well. The Aqua Bourne Ceramic is my favorite, though. It is so durable and washable! I've had it in my kitchen for 4 years now and it still looks great! The paint store I purchased from said either of these are no-VOC bases, and could be no or low VOC, depending on what color you pick. I used very vibrant colors (red and burnt orange), so the pigment did make it low-VOC.
