Our very first Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint workshop.
As you may have figured out, I love this paint!
So making the decision to become a retailer for Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint was a no brainer!
After using it for over a year now, I’ve learnt several tips and tricks along the way and a variety of different looks and finishes you can achieve using MMSMP.
So, I have begun to hold workshops in my area to help others to achieve their goals of painting furniture pieces effectively, and how to perfect and learn the many techniques there for getting that great look for your specific piece of furniture.
So I thought I’d share some pictures of our very first workshop I held this weekend…
My first Workshop Students:
These four lovely ladies were my guinea-pigs … no, not really! Just a super keen bunch of creative women!
And they nailed it! We covered all sorts of things, like how to create a stain to darken natural raw timber … using Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint.
… and how to mix milk paint a few different ways – these girls were whizzes at using the MMSMP mixer!
We learned when to using Bonding Agent … and when not to use it.
And we learned the many uses for Hemp Oil …
So many Options to Finish a Piece
The ladies also learned how to achieve some amazing finishes using Furniture Wax, Antiquing Wax, White Wax and Hemp oil…
Yep – these gals are serious about getting back home and getting stuck into their furniture.
I already warned them that this is addictive!
We all agreed this was one of our favourite finishes – achieved with a technique using MMSMP Curio, Hemp oil and MMSMP Ironstone. Such a gorgeous French Country look. I love the way the paint comes away in thin perfect patches of distressing.

Thanks, Ladies! You were so fun to be around.
And I hope you share your fun projects with me that you are going to create.
I love helping people to learn a new skill. Look – they made me smile!!
Happy painting, girls!
