In normal use Milk Paint powder and warm water are mixed in equal proportions (e.g. – the one pint package contains about 1 1/2 cups of powder that when mixed with 1 1/2 cups of water will make approximately 1 pint of paint.
Mix paint thoroughly for 2 to 3 minutes. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes, re–stir and you’re ready to paint.
Milk Paint is best mixed and used fresh but may be kept refrigerated overnight.
Apply Milk Paint with a "dry" brush, roller or spray gun. Natural bristle brushes work well as do disposable foam brushes.
Dries to the touch in 30 minutes. May be re–coated after 2 hours.
Quick and easy soap and water clean up.
No priming is necessary when using Milk Paint on porous surfaces like new wood or masonry.
Milk Paint should be mixed with Extra-Bond when applied over previously painted or non-porous surfaces such as glass, metal or enamel.
Painted surfaces subject to dirt, dampness or water spotting should be sealed with satin acrylic clear coat or penetrating oils like linseed, tung or Watco Danish Oil. Wax can also be used but may not offer as complete protection.
