REAL Milk Paint
This stuff is awesonme! I have painted furniture that I've made for my children and always get compliments on the finish. The instructions are good and have helpful hints. A word of caution on milk paint: If it doesn't some in a powder form, IT AIN'T MILK PAINT. Milk paint is lime-based, so as soon as you mix it with water, there's a chemical reaction that takes place and starts to harden the paint. That's why you only mix as much paint as you will use in a day. Shame on those General guys trying to sell you "milk paint in can." You're just better off diluting your cheap latex paint with water.
Love this paint!
Mixing the powder with water was so easy using a kitchen hand mixer. The texture was about like cake batter and it went on like cake batter! But it brushed out beautifully and gave a very light, almost unpainted look to the wood. I remember milk paint used on cabinets when I was a girl and the wonderful smell in the kitchens on hot summer's day. I'm hoping for that bit of nostalgia to return.
