Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint

Several months ago Sharon and I traveled to Kansas for our Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint training. We learned so much from our fabulous teacher Abbe Doll. Milk Paint is all natural and yes it does have milk(casein) in it, along with limestone, clay, chalk, and iron oxide. Milk paint has been around for thousands of years and comes in a powder form. Mixing the paint thoroughly is very important and there are many techniques for achieving a smooth mix. You can mix it in a mason jar, use a mini whisk or an electric mixer. After you have painted and experimented with the paint I think you will decide which method of mixing you prefer. Milk Paint can be used as a solid coverage by mixing 1 part water to 1 part paint. But if you would like a wash or stain coverage you mix 3 parts water to 1 part paint. We are offering certified workshops at Fresh and if you would like to sign up stop by the store. If you love painting you will enjoy this paint that has been around for many, many years. Here a few things that I have painted with Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paints. Milk paint classes are scheduled at Fresh and we would love to introduce you to this paint that we love!
