The hessian, jute sacks that house Ireland’s favourite meal are a lovely rustic, unsophisticated shade which adds warmth to a piece of furniture or wall. This shade is lovely if you want to create an earthy mood for a room, or maintain the appearance original wood in a paint wash. It also compliments the lighter shades very nicely, for example Straw Bale or Buttermilk Soda, as a two-tone effect. More about this shade here.
Milk paint is pure natural paint in powder to mix with the water for wood, plaster and other porous surfaces. Great paint for raw wood, or for renovation already treated wood. Natural ingrediences: casein (milk protein), lime, clay, chalk, natural pigmens.
I recommend 2 coats for block coverage and 1 coat or wash (wash - 2 parts of water and 1 part of powder) when the wood grains come through. You may put less water in light shades (about 90% of water) and as necessary carefully add water. More about mixing paint you can find in video.
