3 curated paint samples you can mix up into custom shades
Milk paint has so many possibilities — it comes in a powder so you can mix up just what you need for your project. Blend multiple colors into a custom shade or include add-ins to help with bonding and no foam.
For this box, we picked a gorgeous golden yellow, a peppy pink, and a clean white. These colors are clearly some of our favorites, but we also loved these hues for customizing the v-day charcuterie board project. Add a stripe or paint the edge with a pop of color to add a fun & playful twist to your project.
We love Real Milk Paint Co. not only because of their amazing + non-toxic colors, but also because they're family owned. They are so quick to respond to dms and are amazing at answering questions and teaching all about their products.
Their paint can also be finished so may ways to customize the sheen — from waxes to oils — so you can truly customize the finish from satin to matte to gloss.
