I have been haunting the post office looking for my introductory kit of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. Yahoo…it’s here! I was so excited I stopped everything else I was doing to test paint a dresser I had been saving for this very occasion.
Marian’s colors are beautiful and I found the paint easy to work with. I did not really prep this dresser, just cleaned off the dirt and dust with a sponge. Then I mixed the paint using a Magic Bullet blender. I started with the first coat using the Bonding Agent. The second coat was without the Bonding Agent. Both coats dried very quickly. This paint is easy to work with, and a little thinner than other paints I am used to, it went on like a charm.
The color is just yummy, and the name Tricycle, is perfect, It make me smile when ever I say it or type it!
We decided not to distress this dresser, and because we used the Bonding Agent it did not self chip at all. I can’t wait to do more pieces, next time I will live on the edge and skip the Bonding Agent on the first coat!
Finally, the wax was super easy to apply with a clean soft cloth. It dried quickly and I buffed within 30 minutes.
