Milk Paint- The First Coat

To apply the first coat I mixed 1 part paint to 1 1/4 part warm water and gave it a thourogh stir for a good five minuets. Being used to ready mixed paints from the tin it was quite a culture shock trying to blend the water and powder together to the point where I was happy with it. Applying the paint was simple enough and it dried quickly too. One thing I did experience was a lighter than expected colour. I think this was due to a very pale and light substrate and possibly a bit too much water. For the second coat I will reduce the water content and mix in a small amount of black to darken the red down. Second coat on the way………
