Category The Crafty Bird Milk Paint

No prizes for guessing what famous beverage this colour is based upon!  It is well known amongst Guinness drinkers that this stout is not actually black, but a brown/black colour. (Actually, avid fans of the beverage will actually say that it appears to be dark red in colour when held up to a light – but we are sticking with the lovely brown/black shade). This milk paint shade is this same combination of rich colours and is absolutely stunning over any wood surface.  When painted, it appears almost burnt with a rich, striking effect.

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.
