How to Mix Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in One Easy Step

Mason Jar Mixing Method:

Let me show you a handy tip I came up with after mixing with a stirring stick the first couple of times. Some of you may have already thought of this, but it was like a lightning bolt moment for me after making my first tutorial video on using MMS Milk Paint.
It normally takes about 3-5 minutes to mix milk paint with a stirring stick.
I’m a busy mother of four, and have 2 part time jobs, so I’m ALL about saving time!!
Grab yourself a Mason jar or any jar with a screw top lid.
You can even use something like the Tupperware shaker below.
Measure out your milk paint according to instructions.
MMS Milk Paint = 1 part powder + 1 part water
Screw that lid on tight and give it a really good shake!
Seriously takes you less than 10 seconds!!
No lumps and great consistency.
Here I tested it on a piece of wood.
With my sample pack of “Luckett’s Green” which contains just over 2 tablespoons of powder, I painted:
  • a small table,
  • a wooden serving tray,
  • a picture frame which I’m making into a chalk board, and
  • my piece of wood (above) which I’m creating a sign with.

    I have a couple of boxes of MMS milk paint that I’ve been too daunted to use, so this post is great. Might even try to find time today to use one. Watch this space!
    Thanks, Alison

      Thats great Alison! I’d love it if you shared my video and blog with your readers/followers so that others can get over the “too hard” perception of painting with Milk Paint. LOL.
      I loved looking through your blog. You have done some lovely pieces.
