Picture this: the sun setting on a summer’s evening over the Giant’s Causeway; an array of burnt red rocks that conjure up images of static lava; heat, fire, burning clay radiating welcoming warmth. This colour captures all of this and more – now picture this colour on your favourite old chair, antique dresser or a pre-loved piece of furniture that needs a bit of love and attention.
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.
