Milk paint, as the name implies, is made from milk and comes in a powder (you know, just like Carnation). Simply mix it with water and a pigment, then grab a brush. While it works best on porous surfaces, such as bare wood and raw masonry, you can use it to cover metal and glass by stirring Old Fashioned’s Milk Paint Extra-Bond into a first coat. Oh yeah, it smells like milk too, so make sure you keep some 2 percent on hand to satisfy any sudden dairy cravings.
