Milk paint saved finishing time
I wanted to make 17 wood boxes as Christmas gifts. My trial boxes took a lot of time to sand to 220 grit, apply polyurethane, sand to 220, poly, sand to 220, and poly. I decided to try one coat of milk paint with no subsequent sanding. The results were great, and the boxes are very colorful. It takes a little practice to add the right amount of water to the powder. Too much and you end up applying two coats, too little and the paint does not cover as much.
Milk paint worked well
I wanted to make some unique wood boxes as Christmas 2011 gifts to family members. I wanted to try using old-fashioned milk paint to reduce the finishing time required for polyurethane and use it as a interesting talking point. It worked fine for the small amounts I need to paint my boxes.
