I didn't know quite what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to find out how nice and welcoming the company was. I was happy to be learning from the experts and was pleased to know that it was a wonderful company be associated with.
It was a lovely day of learning, asking questions, painting and great food.
I was excited to come home and get painting right away. This is definitely a paint that takes some practice. I don't feel confidant giving tips or suggestions yet but I hope to in the near future. I have several MMS Milk Paint projects lined up.
Here is my "after training" piece:
This is a small farmhouse bench/coffee table that fits the old world style of milk paint. I used MMSMP in Kitchen Scale. It is an AMAZING color! I loved the richness of it. For this piece, I mixed 1/3 cup paint to 1/3 cup water. It covered in easily in 1 coat with just a few touch ups with the 2nd coat. I added no bonding agent because I wanted it to chip... It didn't chip.
That is the tricky part about Milk Paint. It doesn't always do what you want it to do. However, with a bit of sanding, the piece turned out great! I sealed it with Hemp oil as the finishing step.
I highly recommend that you talk to an expert before you try this paint. There are a lot of variables with this paint. You will appreciate the advise.
I have another project planned with this paint for today. I'd better get painting. :)
