Sample - Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint


One sample of milk paint contains 2 Tablespoons of Milk Paint.

Simply mix this powder with water- it’s that easy! A Milk Paint finish is unique and can range from a solid color to a stain, it all depends on how much water you add! It can be used on any porous surface without a primer. It will never chip or peel on porous surfaces as it soaks in and binds with the substrate.

Mixing:  Mix approximately 1 part water to 1 part milk paint powder with a frother or blender (strictly used for paint), by shaking in a lidded container, by hand with a whisk or stir stick or with a motorized paint mixer. Add lukewarm water to container first, then add milk paint powder slowly and mix for 3-5 minutes. Paint out a test swatch to make sure desired consistency has been achieved. If the paint is translucent or runny, it is too thin.  If it the brush drags and the paint appears gritty or chunky, it is too thick.  Add more water or powder accordingly and mix again.  Once satisfied with the color opacity and consistency pour out paint into a wide mouth mason jar.  Apply paint evenly in long, smooth strokes with a brush or roller. Stir paint occasionally as pigments may settle the bottom of the container. Drying time is approximately 30 minutes. Two to three coats may be necessary to achieve your desired coverage and possibly more when applying a light color over a dark surface. Lightly sand with a 220 grit sandpaper to smooth surface. Remove dust. A top coat is required to protect the paint and bring out the richness and depth of the color. We recommend MMS Hemp Oil for a 100% natural finish or MMS Furniture Wax for a hand-rubbed appearance. Our MMS Tough Coat or a polyurethane or a varnish of your choosing may also be applied.

Please use common sense when tackling any painting and/or refinishing projects.
