Milk paint

Dont call me Mr Milk

If everyone jumped off a cliff, I wouldn’t follow. But I would be curious as to why lots of people were all doing the same thing. Sometimes there is wisdom in the masses. And so it is with the trend of milk paint so I stepped off the cliff and made some to paint a small box I’d made. The final result might appeal to someone looking for a pastoral antique effect but to me it just looks cracked. If I squint charitably I might imagine parts of it resembling the eggshell patina of Celadon pottery, which sounds even worse written out than it did in my head. Maybe I did it wrong?
