I no longer have the book, or rather my mother no longer has the book, so I decided to see what I could come up with on the internet. I was pretty surprised to see that there has been a lot written on it. I shouldn't have been surprised, though. A lot of today's bloggers and ladies/gentlemen are fashionably thrifty, and if anyone can find a bargain, it's definitely you guys!
So, instead of making my own tutorial, when there are already so many, I'll list several sites where you can get the different recipes available and instead comb the internet for some fantastic pics of projects using this paint!
Speaking of projects, milk paint was used for hundreds of years. It's thinner than other paints and tends to give a distressed look. So, how appropriate would it be to give a piece of furniture that you are wanting to age and distress a coat or 2 of milk paint? Plus, you can't argue with the fact that it's VOC free! (Did that sound like a commercial?)
