We wanted to show
how milk paint can be used
for a moderate-to-non distressed look
This amazing piece was
selected for a particular client
We custom mixed the color
The lines and details are simply amazing
As you can see from the photos,
Milk Paint can provide full coverage...
We did use an additive to help it bond
(the piece was wood, but had varnish)
We did not strip or sand the piece
We used Annie Sloan's Craqueleur
over the Milk Paint
and it worked great
Milk paint distresses easily
but requires a bit more effort
if you add the bonding agent
To complete our "experiment"
we added a touch of gilding wax
to tie in the awesome original hardware
We're thrilled with how this piece turned out...
and equally thrilled to find that
our favorite products all play nice together!
