Lucketts Green - Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint

from 6.00

Lucketts Green is named after the colour of the shingled siding on The Old Lucketts Store in Lucketts, Virginia. It is Marian’s favorite antique store and source of design inspiration, and she was a vendor there for several years.  Lucketts Green is a soft, spring green with yellow undertones. It’s very close to the colour commonly found on furniture in the 1930’s and 1940’s, making it the perfect vintage green.

Mix with Boxwood to make a bright, grassy green or with Linen for a pale pastel. For a nice contrast, Lucketts Green pairs well with Artissimo and Dried Lavender.

$6 for a 30 gram tester size. Coverage is 8-10 ft²  (a side table, several mirror frames or a small chair).

$25 for a 230 gram (8 oz) package. This will mix about .94 liter (1 quart) of paint and will cover 70-75 ft² (a dresser and a side table).

When painting over a previously painted or finished piece, it is recommended that you add Bonding Agent to the 1st coat of paint for better adhesion.

product description

Miss Mustard Seed milk paints are organic, biodegradable and zero VOC.

Forget the idea that milk paint should only be used to achieve the “primitive look.” This paint has been given a facelift with new color options and fresh ideas on using it to fit your style. These are just a few of the ways milk paint can be used:

- use it on porous surfaces to create a finish that doesn’t chip or flake with time

- increase the ratio of water to paint to create a coloured stain or wash

- add the bonding agent when painting non-porous surfaces to increase adhesion

Mix 1 part water to 1 part milk paint powder. Mix for 1-3 minutes until water is absorbed into the powder and the mixture is relatively smooth. Water to powder ratio may be adjusted to achieve desired consistency. Test your consistency on a spare piece of wood. Your mixture should provide good one coat coverage. If your mixture is too thin it will be more transparent and stain like. Add more powder to thicken and stir again. Excess can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5-7 days. Stir frequently while using, as the pigments will settle to the bottom of the container. Typically 1-2 coats is required. Allow 30 minutes drying time between coats. Finish with Miss Mustard Seed’s furniture wax, hemp oil or tung oil.
