First time using milk paint. I am happy that I did get the "old look" I was
hoping for. But the whole process seemed messy. So I am wondering what I
might have done wrong.
This morning I painted my shelves for the bookcases I am making. I am using
the powder from http://www.milkpaint.com /.
I mixed it according to the directions 1 - 1/2 cups water to 1 - 1/2 cups
powder and it seemed like pudding, I also had lots of lumps. I added more
water to get rid of the lumps. But the paint still seemed a bit "thick". I
was afraid to add to much more water because I was afraid it would not
I also used a foam brush (per the instructions in the package) and it was
messy and the brushes fell apart. So I switched to a bristle brush and it
looked terrible. So back to foam.
Going forward, is there a better way to apply than with a foam brush?
Is the paint supposed to be that thick or did I mess up there.
