What is the best way to mix milk paint?

Milk Paint is such a fun paint to use. I have always found using warm water and adding the powder first then the water and mixing it about 10 minutes before you start your project to be the best way to mix milk paint.

Step 1 – Add 1 tbsp of Sweetwater to one part warm water and mix. Let sit for about 10 minutes mixing occasionally. Using your brush give the toilet paper inserts 2 coats of milk paint including the inside.

Mould Making Time

Step 4 – Using some cornflour, dust the moulds you want to use from the Lock & Key Mould. Press the clay into the moulds and using a scraper remove any excess clay.

Step 5 – While the clay is still wet take your wood glue and apply to your toilet paper inserts. You can cut the moulds to fit and add elements to fit and join your design together. Let clay set for about 1/2 hr.

Painting Time

Step 6 – Paint over the moulds and let dry. Be gentle not to disrupt the moulds. Be sure to paint any parts that may be poking up in the centre. Then using an old craft brush apply the Clear Oil Wax.

Step 7 – Pop out some Grit. You won’t need a lot and while the Clear Oil Wax is still wet brush over each napkin ring with grit. Let sit for about 10 minutes.

  1. Your napkin rings are so pretty and the colours you chose are stunning. I have never used that paint yet, but will look into it next time I have a piece of furniture to paint.

  2. Sam!! That looks amazing! I had to take a double take and read every word (lol) … these look amazing and to think they are from a toilet paper tube! Wow!
