Last weekend I tried out milk paint for the first time.
Based on what I’ve read, milk paint can sometimes have a mind of its own – chipping and flaking wherever it sees fit. I loved the idea of that. The idea that I would apply the paint and then the piece would kind of get to decide how it wanted to look. However, I was a little intimidated by the fact that it comes in a powder and you mix it with water to turn it into paint. I was afraid it wouldn’t mix well, or that the color wouldn’t be consistent, or that I would be stuck with lumpy bumpy paint.
