Mercantile Milk Paint by Sweet Pickins - your classic light gray color. It's a bit warmer and lighter than our other gray, Galvanized. This will be your perfect neutral gray!
Sweet Pickins Milk Paint is a true milk paint which comes in a powder form. This Milk Paint is environmentally safe, non-toxic and is food safe. There is a slight milky odor when it is applied, but it is completely odorless when dry. This milk paint is 100% VOC free and is made with all natural earth materials.
To make the paint, you simply mix the powder with warm water. How far the paint goes will depend upon your painting technique, how thick/thin you mix the paint, how many coats you do and the contrast between the color your are painting compared to the piece your are painting.
Add Extra Bond when painting over a nonporous or previously finished/painted piece of furniture. The Extra – Bond will ensure adhesion and give you better control over chipping. I highly recommend to always have the Extra Bond on hand when using milk paint. Milk paint is known for its unpredictability when not using the Extra Bond.
Because milk paint comes in a powder form, you can control how thick/thin you mix the paint. You can use it as you would regular paint, thinner for a wash/stain or thicker to create texture.
Milk Paint can naturally chip or crackle when applied over some existing finishes. This can result in an authentic look reminiscent of a chippy/aged/timeworn piece of furniture.
Sweet Pickins Milk Paint colors can be mixed together to achieve your own custom colors. You can also add white to lighten or black to darken. Remember to keep your ratios if you want to recreate the color!
Many variations in color and texture naturally occur on milk painted pieces and this is completely normal. These unique variations which only come with true milk paint, add depth and dimension to each project.
You can use the same techniques for distressing and glazing milk paint as you would any other paint. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
Full instructions on how to use our paint are included in packaging.
I had fabulous service. I tried to get the IOD transfer to work, but it didn't. I called and the woman I spoke to told me I probably needed to seal my tray. I used chalk paint, and it was too rough. I did as she suggested, and it worked like a charm. And she told me I could contact her any time and she would help. And if the IOD batch was bad, she would replace it or refund my money. Can't get better than that. With service like that, I will be buying everything I can from Stockton Farm.
These onesies are for my first grandchild. They are so cute and different. I am using them to decorate the baby shower and then gift to my daughter. Love them!
