Related FAQs

How should I prepare my surfaces before painting with FolkArt Milk Paint?
Preparation depends on the surface. Read more to learn how to prepare unfinished (raw) wood, finished wood, walls, metal, concrete, and masonry.
  • Unfinished Wood – FolkArt Milk Paint is best applied directly to unfinished, raw wood. T Sand any rough areas using a medium-to-fine grit sandpaper. Wipe with a tack cloth to remove sanding dust.
  • Finished Wood – Finished wood surfaces would include previously painted or varnished surfaces. These surfaces are best cleaned with a household glass cleaner to remove dirt and grease and then brushed with a coat of FolkArt Milk Paint Bonding Primer & Sealer. Allow the primer to thoroughly dry (approximately four hours); then apply FolkArt Milk Paint.
  • Walls – Prepare your walls first by cleaning them to remove dust or grease. Clean areas of chipped or peeling paint. Slightly sand the walls to allow for better paint adhesion if walls were previously painted with semi-gloss or gloss finishes.
  • Metal – Wash all new metal surfaces in warm soapy water; allow to thoroughly dry. Moisten a paper towel or soft cloth with distilled white vinegar and wipe over surface; allow to dry. Brush on an application of FolkArt Milk Paint Bonding Primer & Sealer. Allow primer to thoroughly dry.
  • Concrete and Masonry – Apply a coat of white vinegar (to neutralize lime), allow to dry, rinse, and then allow to dry thoroughly. NOTE: FolkArt Milk Paint is not recommended for concrete areas subject to foot traffic such as a patio. FolkArt Milk Paint decorated concrete and masonry surfaces should be kept as indoor only decorative surfaces.
What supplies should I have on hand when working with FolkArt Milk Paint?
You should have your prepped project surface, desired shade of FolkArt Milk Paint, FolkArt Milk Paint Brushes, paper towels, craft knife and foam bowls. You should also make sure to wear old clothing and protective clothing, as FolkArt Milk Paint can penetrate clothing.
What is the dry/cure time when creating with FolkArt Milk Paint?
FolkArt Milk Paint will dry within 30 minutes to an hour depending upon the chosen surface, how thick the paint has been applied, and how humid your work area is. It will take approximately 24 hours before it is totally cured to the surface.
On what types of surfaces can I use FolkArt Milk Paint?
FolkArt Milk Paint is best used as a brush-on paint that can be applied to surfaces such as (finished or unfinished) furniture, walls, metal, concrete and masonry.
Can I mix two FolkArt Milk Paint colors to achieve a new color or different value of the same color?
Yes. FolkArt Milk Paint is designed to be intermixable allowing an artisan to create colors to match any home décor project. To mix colors, simply pour a small amount of the lighter color into a mixing bowl. Begin adding the second or darker value color a small amount at a time into the mixing bowl. Stir to mix the two colors together using a paint stir stick or plastic spoon until desired color is achieved.
Do I need to shake FolkArt Milk Paint before using?
Yes, shaking the FolkArt Milk Paint bottle before using will incorporate the paint (if any has settled).
What is the best method used to apply FolkArt Milk Paint to my unfinished surface?
After properly loading a FolkArt Milk Paint brush, begin applying the milk paint by brushing the surface using long, smooth brush strokes. FolkArt Milk Paint is developed to immediately penetrate the surface like a stain, however it is a paint. Do not let milk paint puddle on the wood, brush it vigorously and work it to a thin film so that is spreads and absorbs uniformly onto the surface.
Allow to dry approximately 30 minutes; sand surface smooth using fine grit sandpaper. Remove sanding dust and reapply milk paint. A minimum of two coats is recommended.
Can I create any special effects with FolkArt Milk Paint?
Yes, FolkArt Milk Paint is versatile and can be used many ways. Apply a standalone color or use to create a distressed appearance. This versatile milk paint can also be thinned with water to achieve a washed look. By thinning the paint a soft color wash can be applied to the surface for just a hint of color while highlighting the natural wood grain.
Can FolkArt Milk Paint be used to stencil a design on my furniture?
Yes. FolkArt Milk Paint can be used when stenciling your milk-painted project.
What is the best stenciling technique to use when stenciling with FolkArt Milk Paint?
When stenciling with FolkArt Milk Paint, it is best to use a dry brush technique. Make sure your stencil brush is properly loaded and excess milk paint has been removed. To load the stencil brush, dab the bristles into a small puddle of FolkArt Milk Paint and remove most of the paint by dabbing a paper towel. Stencils can be taped or held in place. When stenciling, hold the stencil brush vertically, and keeping the flat portion of the bristles flat to the surface, touch the stencil and begin stenciling using a circular motion moving clockwise then counter-clockwise.
NOTE: It is best to begin at the outer edges of the stencil design working toward the center. Stenciled designs can remain clean and crisp as stenciled or when dry sanded slightly to create an aged, distressed look.
