The following blog post has been adapted and used with permission, written by fellow Aussie MMSMP Retailer, Sada from For the Love Creations. I love Sada’s work and use of Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint, so hop on over and take a look at her blog and Facebook page.

You may think it’s “just paint” why do I need a Workshop?

Well … of course you don’t  need a Workshop to appreciate and use Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint – but it sure helps!

Not only do we cover the basics:

– how Milk Paint sticks to any surface without sanding or prep

– mixing tips

– using Bonding Agent

– creating the “chippy look”, etc.  … but we also cover the not-so-basics.

You will learn about the diverse possibilities and uses for Milk Paint as well as “Insider Tips” for creating one-of-a-kind masterpieces. Discover the various techniques from a trained Workshop Instructor to make your Milk Paint Experience even better.

All of this in a fun and inspirational environment with yummy snacks, new friends & of course … parting gifts you’ve made yourself!
And lastly, 10% off Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint on the day.
