In addition to featuring Lucketts Green and Mustard Seed Yellow Milk Paint this month, we’re also featuring our beloved Tough Coat as our Product of the Month.
Tough Coat is one of the newer finishes in the line and it has proven itself to be invaluable when painting pieces using MMS Milk Paint. It’s a water-based finish that dries to a matte sheen.
It is non-yellowing and is self-leveling for minimal brush strokes. It is also low odor and low VOC which makes it safe to use indoors.
Application is pretty straight forward. Simply squeeze the amount needed into a dish and brush on with a paintbrush or a foam applicator.
Tough Coat is ideal for sealing chippy pieces of furniture – whether they are painted with MMS Milk Paint or if they have the original paint such as this mantle from the 1700’s.
Kriste recently used it to seal the chippy original paint on her barnwood cupboard in her bedroom.
Marian has used it to seal her crusty counter.
Kriste also painted Tough Coat on this Victorian settee before Marian made it over. Tough Coat can also act as a sealer to prevent bleed through.
This is especially helpful if you’re painting a light color over dark wood.
Tough Coat is also ideal to use on areas that are high traffic such as table tops, dresser tops, shelves, and doors.
Marian sealed her Eulalie’s Sky stepback cupboard with Tough Coat for this year’s Lucketts Spring Market.
