Milk Paint I is a jam-packed informational and very hands-on class for beginners and those with limited experience working with milk paint. Starts promptly at 2PM. Ends promptly at 5PM. Late arrivals will be accommodated and missed instruction will be provided in the form of a worksheet.
Class moves very fast. Bring your questions and be ready to fly through a crash course in milk paint! Drinks and snacks are provided.
Milk Paint I very thoroughly covers the following topics:
Milk paint vs. chalk and mineral paints,
Mixing milk paint,
Custom blending milk paints,
Chipping - how to encourage it, how to avoid it :)
Tips and tricks for painting on new wood, aged and dry wood, engineered wood, plastic, glass, and metal.
Everything waxing: first coat, clear wax, dark wax, white wax, customizing wax colors, layering waxes, and curing wax.
Care for pieces painted with milk paint will also be discussed.
Participants will be hands-on with mixing their choice of milk paint color, brush types and their uses, applying milk paint to sample boards, customizing milk paint, waxing techniques and layering waxes.
Comfortable clothing is suggested. Participants should expect to leave like Kristen paints - messy and accomplished. Please do not bring or wear anything that should not be splattered with paint or smeared with wax. Looking forward to seeing you!
