Anyone with experience using milk paint and a fav way to mix and with what?

I want to paint some things.. some inside the house and some in the yard.

And your decorating ideas...any and all suggestions, ideas, help much appreciated.

    I bought some instead of mixing, so I can't help you there. But I can tell you that the coverage was great! I got it for a large project where I didn't want to strip the varnish. I did use two coats, and I put a sealer over it once I was through painting. I did it several years ago and it has held up very well.

    Good luck!

    So it's coverage is good enough to cover up varnish? Would white milk paint do that or does it need to be a darker color? And was it a particular sealer, indoor/outdoor?

    Thanks for your response.
