The bold green of the Irish Free State Army uniform, as worn by the heroic soldiers that marched under the leadership of Michael Collins, is a bold, strong colour which takes pride of place in the Heritage Shades of Ireland milk paint range. A fighting colour which conveys history and tradition, this shade will transform any piece of furniture, especially antique or vintage pieces, into rich, luxurious versions of themselves.
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.
