Outback Petticoat - Miss Mustard's Seed, Milk Paint
Sample Size: Perfect for a small project or color testing
Coverage: Approximately 8-10 sq ft.

Color Description:  This wonderful color was given the name Outback Petticoat by a group of our Australian Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint retailers. The Australian Outback has a unique orange soil which was used to stain the hems of white petticoats of settler women. The name immediately struck a chord with Miss Mustard Seed.  She loves the imagery of a woman retaining their femininity and sense of style, yet being impacted by their rugged surroundings.

What is Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint?

Milk Paint is hundreds of years old dating back to early cave paintings and Egyptian tombs. It’s made of milk powder, lime, and pigment, so it’s all natural and behaves very different from its more modern counterparts like latex and acrylics. It comes in a powder form and it is mixed with water. It provides a beautiful matte finish that shows amazing variances in the color. On certain finished surfaces, it will flake away in some areas, giving a piece an “authentic chippy finish” you can’t get with any other paints. The way it will chip is unpredictable, so as Miss Mustard Seed says, you have to be willing to go with it; (Adding Miss Mustard Seed's Bonding Agent will eliminate the chipping.)

Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, Mixing Directions
MMS Milk Paint is a concentrated, powdered paint that must be mixed with water. Mix 1 part water to 1 part milk paint powder and optional Bonding Agent. Blend by hand or with a blender, we recommend using MMS Whisk or MMS Paint Mixer. Drying time is approximately 30 minutes. Two to three coats may be necessary to achieve desired coverage or more when applying a light color over a dark surface. Lightly sand with a 220 grit sandpaper to smooth surface. Apply top coat to protect surface, see below. Note: Increase the ratio of water to create a colored stain or wash, or decrease the water for a more opaque finish. Please Note: Slight shade and color variations may occur between batches. Purchase enough paint to test and finish your entire project. Be sure to save some for future touch ups.

Optional Bonding Agent
Add the MMS Milk Paint Bonding Agent (100% Natural) to the pre-mixed Milk Paint when painting non-porous surfaces to achieve a smooth, even and durable finish. Please Note: You only need to add the Bonding Agent to the first coat applied. Subsequent layers of Milk Paint will naturally adhere to itself.

Recommend Top Coat
Milk Paint should be sealed with a top coat using Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Wax or Miss Mustard Seed's Hemp Oil to protect the paint. It also enhances the richness and depth of color. Use MMS Hemp Oil for a 100% natural finish or MMS Furniture Wax for a hand-rubbed appearance.
