stool sample

Honestly, I couldn’t think of a better title for this post.
Today I want to share a sample of what happens when mixing milk paint colors.

But first a little eye candy from the Circa Dee space at yesterday’s Clover Market.  We had an amazing day.  I can’t thank everyone enough!  The crowds were out in full force and were snatching up lucky finds like crazy.  Here’s a bit of what we had to offer with more booth photos posted on facebook

Back to the post at hand…

Last Thursday was the first milk paint workshop where we tackled mixing the paint, using it as a stain, wash and using hemp oil.  I used this little plywood stool as a sample applying ironstone milk paint to the top.

At the end of the class we got crazy and mixed up the remaining colors which introduced this magnificent mauvey pink color.

If you want to walk on the wild side with us this week, there is still time to join.  On Thursday we will be focusing on using the bonding agent to produce a controlled, opaque finish.  And next week, we’ll be getting chippy!

I know there is an interest in a Saturday workshop.  I hear ya loud and clear my milk paint loving friends!

Let’s shoot for a date in June where we’ll do the entire workshop series in one day.  Don’t quote me just yet but what does June 15th look like for those of you that are interested?

I’d like to schedule something before everyone starts taking off on summer vacations and May is pretty much out of the question for me with the upcoming nuptials and all!

Happy Monday!
