Experimenting with MILK PAINT
It smells like sour milk. It took five or six coats and I still wasn't getting the opacity I was after so I gave up. Mind you, I was painting pale on dark stained wood. It's cracking is unpredictable and it ended up being very distressed in areas that I wouldn't necessarily distress due to it's flaky nature.
Apparently you don't have to distress it but I don't know what happens to all the flaky bits if you don't. I presume they will drop off anyway.
I'd love to know what you think!
I've got squillions of other projects to show you that are almost complete, including the cute little frenchy oak cabinet. Stay tuned!
