Using this milk paint recipe, its easy to make up batches as you need them and not worry about it drying out. Test colors as you go with different pigments.

I came across this simple milk paint recipe from the master Martha Stewart and as milk paint is always popular, I thought I would pass it on.

The ingredients are easy to find and include lemon juice, skim milk, dry color pigment or acrylic paint.

Enjoy the process! Remember it dries quickly so work fast. If you want that chippy look, you can find a video tutorial here.
