We're back with another Miss Mustard Seeds Milk Paint tutorial! In this blog post we'll talk about how to layer colours of milk paint using a hemp oil resist. This technique creates a beautiful, authentic chippy farmhouse finish that we love!
Milk paint is a powder that needs to be mixed with water before using. Learn more about how to do this in our Mixing Milk Paint blog post.
Also, learn about how to apply the first layer of Milk Paint to raw wood.
Let's get started!
We wanted to paint the tray a dark colour first and then layer a lighter colour over top. However you can choose your fave colour combo from the 25 gorgeous colours, the sky is the limit!
Here's a few tools you'll need.
Here's a short video that shows you how tortr apply the hemp oil and the second layer of milk paint. We'll go through a step by step process below.
Since we want the Curio colour to come through we first have to create a resist between the two layers of paint. We used hemp oil to create our resist, however you can use wax as well.
You can use a brush or a cloth to apply the hemp oil to the surface, we used a brush today.
Our next blog post will be able distressing and sealing our project! Keep an eye out for that.
