Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint How To

Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint - available at Front Porch Mercantile



You know I LOVE Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint!

I love the finish it gives, the variety of looks it can offer, it’s the smoothest sanding paint eva and I adore the depth of colour it has. I love it so much, I am a North American Retailer Trainer,  I love teaching fellow retailer and my customers how to use it.

Did you know it is Made in Canada? Yup. We kinda really love that too!

Miss Mustard Seed is based in the US, but all of her milk paint is made in Canada, by a really super duper family run business. (actually all of my quality paint lines are Canadian) Win, win.

It can seem a little intimidating, mixing and all that. But really it is easy once you get the hang of it, and oh so worth it.

Here is a great post from Miss Mustard Seed on the basics. The first coat really is ugly. I wish someone had mentioned it to me when I first started painting with it. Seriously, watch this video. For real. Do it.
