I recently heard of milk paint for the first time. Sounded a little weird so I thought I would join a workshop in town to see what it was all about. You can read all about the paint here, but basically it's a natural paint with no odor and when used in combination with different techniques, you can get some really cool vintage-looking results.
The idea was simple. Pick two colors—one for the bottom that shows through and one top color. I chose gray and yellow. After I painted the first coat (it dries super fast), I added some wax to the areas that I wanted to show through. Then I painted the top yellow coat. The whole project was done and dry in an hour.
