Non Toxic Mythic Paint Review and 2Gallon Prize Pack Giveaway

The inside of my house is almost completely white. When we bought the house a few years ago we didn't mind that there was no color because we could paint eventually. But after 2 years only one room has been painted, and the boring color is starting to wear on me. I don't mind white, but there is just SO much of it.

A few months ago I told my husband that I really wanted to paint my bedroom. But being pregnant, I couldn't help and I was worried about exposing myself to the paint fumes. I was so excited when I discovered Mythic Paint.


Mythic Paint is a new breed of paint that is non-toxic and has an ultra low odor which makes it safe for human and animals. The paint contains no VOC’s or other cancer-causing toxins that can emit years after drying.

When we opened our paint can I was actually surprised at how low odor the paint really is.  Just to be safe I still didn't help my husband paint, but the paint smell never escaped beyond my bedroom walls.  My husband was shut in the room for hours and he never experienced dizziness or nausea like he has when he has painted in the past.



And my room looked great!  Now we just need to put up our crown molding to make the color pop even more.

To Buy - A gallon of mythic paint retails for about $17 and can be purchased online or at various retailers across the country

To Win - Mythic Paint is giving a Mythic color deck (value $40), Land of Nod Color Palettes Deck and David Bromstad Color Palette Deck  (value $10) and two gallons of any color (value $100) to one of you!

    104. I learned their products are sold at two locations near me in Dallas. I thought I had seen them at Lowes, but I guess I dreamt it because Lowes didn't appear in the dealer locator.

      I think the pennies from Heaven color is what I'd choose if I win, but I'd like to see the colors in the store vs. online.

    147. Their paint estimator tool suggest that I'll need about 1.69 gallons of paint to paint my dining room, so if I win I'll have enough! If I won I would choose Helios off-white.

    148. I learned that it is scientifically formulated to offer all of the premium qualities of conventional water-based paints without the need for toxic solvents. No toxic solvents means no toxic smell. I would like the color hour glass sand if I win. Thanks for the chance.
