Is there a paint safe to ingest?


Sounds odd I know but I'm converting an old bookcase into a hamster house. I want to paint the inside white but need a totally non-toxic paint just in case he chews. So far I've been looking at Ecopaint and Milk Paint.

Any better options?

Now your in the right forum, but since some of us are in both, and you talked about a dog over there- I'm wondering what this trolling is for?

And the info given so far over there is still correct.

No trolling but thanks. I'm actually painting my bannister (for the dog) and my daughter wants a new enclosure for her hamster.

I've seen paints that say they are safe baby's cribs...well what if the baby chomps on it? There must be a safe alternative...or safer

No paint is safe for ingesting no matter how "green" or "eco-friendly" the label says they are. Paint is a mix of chemicals & ingesting those chemicals is NEVER a good thing. More so for pets with smaller digestive systems.............just sayin'.

Personally, I like Aura, but it's an acquired taste

I would just oil the inside - not paint it. Like tung oil or even a beeswax type oil for butcher blocks - we prep food on surfaces coated with it. . . you know - why not? Juts avoid paints altogether.
