Hopefully you’ve read the post I did for Miss Mustard Seed about the biggest difference between milk paint and other paints on the market. If you haven’t read it yet, please go here. It simplifies the biggest difference of milk paint: its versatility.
I do, however, have an update for you. I went to The Nest the following day after the post was written and had to move all of those samples I created for the post. The one with the milk paint used a plaster basically fell off in a couple of places. Two things that are important to note: (1) I definitely put the layer on way too thick; and (2) I realized that I didn’t add the bonding agent to that batch of paint and I probably should have.
That portion of the post is definitely meant to be an inspirational project and to get your creative wheels spinning. It might be a good technique to use on a stencil project like this:
Where you could just add a round dot of milk paint raised plaster at the end of each line.
Or you could use the plaster technique with a stencil project like this:
Where you could use the milk paint plaster for the berries on the wreath to give the project some dimension by making it 3D artwork.
Anyways, I just wanted to point this out to you because I’d hate for any of you to mix up a batch and expect it to stick without being fully informed first. Try, try and try again and have fun with it!
Good luck with all of your projects and I can’t wait to see what you create! Happy Painting!
