Linen - a color profile for this warm white Milk Paint

Linen – color profile

You just can’t beat a good neutral, and Linen fulfills that very need. A good balance of yellow and tan, without being too overpowering, Linen is the epitome of an off-white. Use it where you need a warmer neutral, or to lighten other Milk Paint colors to keep them soft.

Linen is the cream in the Milk Paint line. Named for linen fabric that have slightly yellowed with age, this color has warm undertones and is a nice, creamy white. Lighten colors with Linen to keep them warm. It pairs well with Apron Strings and Kitchen Scale (and every other color in the line too!)

Here’s Linen paired with French Enamel and finished with the Antiquing Wax. This luscious, dark wax gives whatever color it’s over an aged look, like the piece has been around for years.
