 Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Project





table from My Favorite Junk Shop



It was really rickety and put together with metal pieces and probably a little spit and glue. The Junktion Technical Specialist made it steady as a rock.



I wanted to do something a little quirky for this project. It was a cheap table and just right for “technical experimentation”.

I first put on a coat of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Tricycle Red. This pic shows the table with one coat of Tricycle.

I read on facebook where you could put MMS Hemp Oil between the layers and it would act like Vaseline and the top layer of paint would chip off where the hemp oil was used.



I wasn’t too sure about this process so I used a very very tiny bit of hemp oil. Then I put on a coat of MMS Milk Paint in Ironstone.



After the white paint dried I rubbed off the chippy areas with a rag.

I took my paint scraper to the table and chipped off the loose pieces of paint.
