I would like to introduce you to Aviary! This lovely smokey blue gray is a wonderful new addition to the Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint line.
I had my fingers crossed that I would have it available this weekend in my shop, but my shipment won't arrive until Monday. Monday is the official launch date - so it's all good! I do have it for sale on my website already and should be able to ship it out on Monday or Tuesday at the latest (I am relying on my courier pal to deliver it early enough on Monday, but sometimes he comes late in the day). I love my courier pal, especially when he brings new paint colours or new products!
Aviary - it really is gorgeous!
There is always a story behind every new colour introduced into the line and I love this story! A few years ago, Marian (aka Miss Mustard Seed) bought this antique birdcage. Marian loved the colour ...
so she played around with mixing the perfect shade to match the birdcage.
I'd say it's a match!
I'm guessing you know this already, but milk paint comes in a powder form and is mixed with water. If that intimidates you, don't worry - it's easy to mix! My tips and tutorials section of my website has lots of great information about milk paint including some wonderful videos by Marian.
So, do you love Aviary as much as I do? What would you paint with it?
