I prefer to mix milk paint in an old jar and shake it up. The paint does foam, but I give it a stir and most of the foam bubbles get incorporated back into the paint.
I love using milk paint, but you never know what’s going to happen. That may be what I like most about it (that and you don’t have to do any prep work). On this side table there was one small area that the paint didn’t take to at all.To fix this I had to add some bonding agent to the mixed up milk paint. And did another coat.After it had dried I applied Miss Mustard Seed Hemp Oil for added protection.
I ran out of the Eulalie’s blue milk paint and I find with milk paint that I can never mix another batch to match the original paint. So I mixed up a small amount of Miss Mustard Seed Ironstone. And painted the drawer front in Ironstone.
Oh how I love a good garage sale find!
