    I just bought my first gallon of milk paint! Can I use a clear wax on top to seal it?

    • Real Milk Paint

      Sure, We recommend the Clear Carnauba Paste Wax . Other waxes can work as well . Wax is a soft finish , so it is not real good a keeping things water proof

    We have an early dovetailed seachest that appears to be painted with milkpaint. It had a layer of latex, which we removed. The paint surface is very worn. We’re considering graining the surface with milkpaint. Can that be done and do we have to prepare the milkpaint in a special way for graining?
    thank you

    • Real Milk Paint

      The milk paint grains very well with a graining comb . You might put some of our Low Sheen Burnishing paste over the paint first . When dry then do the milk paint graining . The Burnishing Paste will stop the milk paint from getting in the grain of the wood

  • Real Milk Paint

    Feather will work as well . The paint does dry fast . So you may need to mist it with water to keep it fluid

    I have beech butcherblock counters from Ikea. They are already installed. On the underside, they have only whatever Ikea put on them, mineral oil, if anything. On the sunnyside of thr counters, I have used trial and error. I’ve used a couple of different products, mostly boiled linseed oil from the local hardware store, mineral oil once, Daddy Van’s polish (beeswax and olive oil), and lately, my own concoction, a paste made of beeswax, coconut oil, olive oil, ghee, and essential oils. Intending to do dark tung oil, in a few months, in the mean time, I’ve sanded my counters and used my own concoction. When it does come time to do the dark tung oil, what will I need to do to prepare the counters?
