Step 1 – Pop some warm water into your measuring jug. Then using your metal measuring spoon measure out 1:1 ration of your favourite milk paint to water. For this example, I measured 1 tbs milk powder to 1 tbs warm water. The colour I used was Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Eulalie’s Sky.

Step 2 – Add the milk powder to the cup, then add the water. You can add the water first if you prefer but I have just always added powder first.

Step 3 – Using your small mixer, mix the paint and water for approximately 2 to 5 minutes, until well combined. Let sit while you prepare your piece to paint. Then once ready to start painting mix again and go nuts painting!
