Lucketts Green

$15.00$54.00

Lucketts Green is named after the colour of the shingled siding on The Old Lucketts Store in Lucketts, Virginia. It is Miss Mustard Seed creator, Marion’s, favourite antique store and source of design inspiration, and she was a vendor there for several years. Lucketts Green is a soft, spring green with yellow undertones. It’s very close to the colour commonly found on furniture in the 1930’s and 1940’s , making it the perfect vintage green.

Mix it with Boxwood to make a bright, grassy green, or Linen for a pale pastel. For a nice contrast, Lucketts Green pairs well with Artissimo.

One quart of milk paint covers approximately 70 sq. feet which means 1 litre covers approximately 6.5 sq metres.  Simply mix this powder with water- it’s that easy! A Milk Paint finish is unique and can range from a solid colour to a stain, it all depends on how much water you add! It can be used on any porous surface without a primer. It will never chip or peel on porous surfaces as it soaks in and binds with the substrate.

Mixing: Mix approximately 1 part water to 1 part milk paint powder with a blender (strictly used for paint), by shaking in a lidded container, by hand with a whisk or stir stick or with a motorised paint mixer. Add tepid water to container first, then add milk paint powder slowly and mix for 3-5 minutes. Paint a test swatch to make sure desired consistency has been achieved. If the paint is translucent or runny, it is too thin.  If it the brush drags and the paint appears gritty or chunky, it is too thick.  Add more water or powder accordingly and mix again.  Once satisfied with the colour opacity and consistency, pour out paint into a wide mouth container. Apply paint evenly in long, smooth strokes with a brush or roller. Stir paint occasionally as pigments may settle at the bottom of the container. Drying time is approximately 30 minutes. Two to three coats may be necessary to achieve your desired coverage and possibly more when applying a light colour over a dark surface. Lightly sand with a 220 grit sandpaper to smooth surface. Remove dust. A top coat is required to protect the paint and bring out the richness and depth of the colour. We recommend MMS Hemp Oil for a natural finish or MMS Furniture Wax for a hand-rubbed appearance. A polyurethane or varnish of your choosing may also be applied.
