Typewriter is a soft black with a time-worn feel. Like the frequently used keys on an antique typewriter, this color is stately enough to adorn the most classically shaped pieces yet humble enough to give the appearance of a well-loved antique. Add this to any MilkPaint™ color to change the shade.
MMS Milk Paint Description: Milk Paint is a powdered paint that has been around for thousands of years. It was found in the pyramids in Egypt and has been used in America for years on furniture, walls, barns, etc. It is a versatile paint that can be used to achieve a variety of looks from chippy and distressed to smooth and sleek. Our new MilkPaint™ formula is made from four 100% natural ingredients that you can actually pronounce - casein (milk protein), lime (calcium hydroxide), natural pigments, and plant-based filler.
Mix approximately 1 part water to 1 part milk paint powder with a blender (strictly used for paint), by shaking in a lidded container, hand mixing with a whisk, stir stick, or with a motorized paint mixer.
Add warm water to container first, then add milk paint powder slowly and mix for 3-5 minutes.
Paint a test swatch to make sure desired consistency has been achieved. If the paint is translucent or runny, it is too thin. If the brush drags and the paint appears gritty or chunky, it is too thick. Add more water or powder accordingly and mix again.
-Clean project thoroughly prior to painting with soap and water
-Mix equal parts water and milk paint powder
-Stir and allow to rest until pigments are fully dissolved
-Test before using to ensure the pigments are fully dissolved
