MILK PAINTING 101
Do you have drab old furniture that you don’t want to throw out, but don’t know how to repaint?
Are you looking for an alternative paint that is non-toxic, smell-free, and organic?
Have you been interested in trying Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint but weren’t quite sure how to go about it?
DIY CHALKBOARD FRAME
Our Milk Painting 101 will get you familiar with how to use the paints and create beautiful distressed effects to give your furniture that cozy cottage look.
The unique qualities of milk paint give it a texture quite unlike any other paint on the market. It is simple to use and it is possible to create different distressed and vintage effects using the paints in combination with other materials.
One of the best things about it is that no sanding is required to prepare any pre-painted furniture!
The different skills you will learn in this workshop include:
Use of the Bonding Agent
Top coats: Hemp Oil, Wax, and Tough Coat
Making a chalkboard surface
*Choose your colors from the full range of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paints.
At the end of the workshop, you will go home with sample boards with the different finishing techniques and a Chalkboard Frame (pictured at the top) that you have made yourself. Place the chalkboard in your kitchen or home office to keep track of things, big and small, that you need to remember.
This beginners’ course for Milk Painting will set you up with what you need to know to get those furniture pieces refreshed!
These basic courses will be held every Sunday at 10:30 a.m., starting on April 26, 2015. Book your slot now! Classes will be limited to five (5) participants at a time.
