MILK PAINT FINISH: CHAIRS AND SPOONS with CURTIS BUCHNANAN
Curtis and I talk about painting spoons and Democratic chairs with milk paint. We cover preparing the surface for paint, mixing and applying milk paint, brush choices, crackle finishes, rubbing the paint out to create a sheen, and top coat options. Q&A.

“That spoon carving video blew me away. You all need a TV show. I love the format, it worked really, really well I believe. There were good closeups and I liked how Curtis was watching the work and visible right there. It was quite meta.”
