When I decide to paint something, it doesn’t take me long to add the powder to the water and dip in a brush.
It looked beautiful as is, but how could I resist painting it in MMS Milk Paint Mora? A Mora clock painted in Mora.
It has a soft, muted finish that I really love and suits the Swedish style of the clock.
I used all three of the waxes to bring out different aspects of the finish…highlight the texture, simulate age and grunge that may have built up in crevices and on ledges.
The key was keeping it subtle, so the result wasn’t smudgy.
If you apply tinted waxes properly, you really shouldn’t be able to “see” them. They should just enhance a piece, not define it.
The freshly painted Mora clock and my tufted sofa make quite a pair. Like peanut butter and dark chocolate. Mmmm.
While we’re talking about milk paint, I’m excited to share that Farmhouse White will launch in Australia on February 28, 2016. Those down under had to wait a while longer, but it will be worth it! There are also five more “Farmhouse White Tickets” hidden in the bags we sent across the ocean, so be on the lookout for those if you purchase your paint in Australia.
The tickets in the US and Canada have not been found, yet, so keep opening those bags! Three have been found in Europe.
If you’re still not sold on the color, this video might convince you…
