What I’ve learned this past week painting with Fusion Milk Paint. Milk Paint is an entirely different medium from mineral paint.
Tip #1 - Follow Instruction
Mix the milk paint according to directions. I tried winging it and take it from me, it didn’t work out so well. When mixed with the right amount of water it is a beautiful milky consistency. The ratio is one to one equal parts. If you want it a little thicker you can add more of the paint powder. On this piece I used Toasted Coconut.
Tip #2 - Drys Quickly
One of the great things about milk paint is it drys quickly. You should be able to paint your second coat in about 30 minutes. I finished the piece below in one day.
Tip #3 - Zero Brush Strokes
Can you believe it? It is virtually impossible to have brush strokes with milk paint. I just painted this piece and I was amazed at how smooth it is.
Tip #4 - Finish up with wet sanding
This was an amazing way to finish the piece! Using Fusion Hemp Oil while sanding the piece was incredible. The piece was left with a chippy, smooth, professional finish. Just see for yourself!
This piece is painted in Toasted Coconut. I love the color, a soft off white which looks gorgeous with the natural knobs and top.
