    I have only mixed the paint by hand – but I want to try your little mixer next time.

  2. Beth

    I am brand new here! I am in love and intrigued all at once. I would love to win this giveaway to get me started on my milk paint journey =)


  3. Kathy milliken

    I love this color! I have used trophy, shutter gray, and kitchen scale they are all beautiful need to try this color next. I place paint in jar with lid, shake then wisk!

  4. Shannon

    I mixed mine today with my Ninja blender and it worked beautifully! I painted two pieces and they came out perfect

  5. Jenn A

    I haven’t mixed any yet, but I’d probably use a little electric mixer. I have one kind of like the ones you sell.

  6. Connie

    I subscribe to your blog and follow on Pinterest. I mix paint but would like to try the small hand whisk.

  7. Jennifer Hansen

    In a mason jar with a wisk. I follow you on Facebook, pintrest, and I am subscribed to you blog:)

  8. Trudi

    Would love to try typewriter! I love the distressed black look. My favorite way to mix is with my mini wish.

  9. Trudi

    I finally figured out the Google+ thing and follow there too. 🙂 I like to mix with a mini wisk.

  10. Jill Nelson

    I’ve only tried using a fork and rubber spatula! Guess i need to pull out the blender or at least a wisk…though the fork and spatula worked for me!

  11. Kathryn Leigh

    And I now follow you on google plus as well. So much inspiration, so little time!

  12. Jackie

    I just spent the weekend turning my entertainment center into an armoire using Shutter Gray and Grain Sack. I prefer to use the tiny wisk I purchased from The Ironstone Nest.

  13. Lynne Weaver

    I have good results mixing with the tiny whisk and warm water. Love milk paint. It has become my favorite medium!

  14. Kelley

    I am new to using MMS Milk Paint. Used a craft stick yesterday, then shook up the mason jar to really mix it up. Think I need a mini wisk really badly!

  15. Cathy

    OOOH! Typewriter! I would love to win that color, I haven’t actually mixed any up yet, so I don’t have a favorite way, yet! Hopefully, soon!

    Thanks, Cathy

  16. CAROL

    I love to mix milk paint with the little mixer I bought from MMS. It really makes the paint creamier and mixes it well! I love typewriter! I use it a lot! Hope I win the giveaway!!

  17. Sherry

    Hello All,

    I have not yet tried milk paint, but when I do my method of mixing would most likely be with my cocoa vibrating whisk, it was a gift, but I never my hot chocolate that way:-)with an awesome Goodwill find of plastic measuring cups. Please pick me so I can finally try milk paint.


  18. Wendy

    Truthfully, I have never mixed it but I am guess I would use my electric mixer. I would LOVE to try it though and just waiting for the right thing to paint.

  19. Mary @ Orphans With Makeup

    Here is my favorite way to mix MMSMP:
    1. Get a recycled glass jar with lid (my preference is the larger jam or salsa jars).
    2. Pour powder inside jar;
    3. Add water;
    4. Mix paint with stir stick for 2 minutes.
    5. Close lid and shake it up a bit.
    6. Let stand about 45 minutes;
    7. Grab a cup of coffee and catch up on all my favorite bloggers!
    8. Go back to paint and stir a few more minutes;
    9. It should then be creamy smooth and ready to paint.
    Would love to try “Typewriter”

    My favorite way to mix milk paint? I took my hand beater out of the kitchen, and with the wise attachment, I mix it with water on high in a wide mouth mason jar. I have to let it de-froth, but it works great!
    I follow you on your blog, instagram and Facebook.

  21. Dawn K

    My favorite way to mix MMS milk paint is with a plain paint stick. I do like to use a mini whisk sometimes, too, though!

  22. Dawn K

    I like and follow you on facebook – and my favorite product is artissimo milk paint! But that’s followed closely by the hemp oil!!

  23. Madie

    I miss my milk paint with either the milk paint mixer or in a mason jar. I like mmsmp in facebook and follow on pinterest.

  24. Joanie ellis

    I LOVE mixing up milk paint with the tiny electric mixer, it makes the constancy great! And I do it in a small wide mouth mason jar, it works so good!

  25. Kasie Davis

    I just saw your booth at a local craft show and I didn’t have a chance to stop and look and now I’m kicking myself in the butt! I’m currently re-doing 5 old wood doors to make my salon stations out of! Found you on here and I live an hr away from somewhere I can purchase so I have not mixed yet. But I will probably do the mason jar method! Unless I can get my hands on one your the little mixers! Cant wait to try it!
    I am signed up for you blog also following you on pinterest, facebook & instagram!

    My first “experiment” with milk paint was using two colors, Tricycle as first coat and Boxwood on top, on a little chest I bought at a resale store. I used your Bonding Agent in the Boxwood bottom coat (so far – I’ve mixed the milk paint in a plastic container and with a small wooden stick) – as I didn’t want it to flake off the chest, then tried adding some vaseline in spots here and there to allow flaking, then applied a couple of coats of Tricycle.

    I bought Antiquing Wax too, but haven’t used it yet, as I’m not sure if I want to now on this particular piece.

    I really want to try more colors and the waxes along with the Hemp Oil on different items and am keeping my fingers crossed I win this give-away. I would use all the items! 🙂

  27. katie

    I like you on face book, follow on pinterest & follow the blog. Love the inspiration! Have not mixed any paint yet.

  28. Emily Gill

    I just subscribed to your blog. I stumbled upon milk paint today as I was shopping for Annie Sloan chalk paint. Very interesting! Would love to win this so I can try it out!

  29. Faithe Warren-Agee

    I follow you on EVERYTHING!!!!! I mix with your little aqua frother and love it.

  30. Lea C

    Whatever I have handy – whisk, fork, chop stick and start sloooooowly, then pick up the pace. Easy-peasy!

  31. Lea C

    Whatever I have handy – whisk, fork, chop stick and start slowly.

    Thank you!

  32. Ronnda

    I have tried all the methods to mix my paint. But, my favorite method is to use my baby mixer to mix my MMSMP. LOVE,love, LOVe the results I get it when I mix it this way. And the mixer is so cute, too! 🙂

  33. Ronnda

    Follow you on Instagram and my preferred way of mixing MMSMP is with the baby mixer! 🙂

  34. Laurel

    I have never used milk paint but I have 3 projects in mind that I want to try it on. I would use a wire wisk to mix the paint!

  35. Laurel

    I have subscribed to the blog for awhile. I am getting the courage up to paint an old family heirloom with milk paint. I love all the articles here and I’m learning a lot!

  36. Laura

    I have used a mini-wisk and a spoon so far…maybe try an electric mixer for my next project??

  37. Laura

    I have liked MMS on facebook…I don’t think I can pick a favorite product! I have loved using the paint, wax and hemp oil so far…all quality products.

  38. Michelle Robertson

    I love your blog. My absolute favorite product is your clear wax! LOVE IT!

  39. Deena

    I have just recently tried MMSMP for the first time using Typewriter on our dresser. My method of mixing was in a jar but I plan on using a mixer next time. One piece of furniture done (well almost,I need to order the Hemp Oil)and 5 more to go.:) Can’t wait to get our new home decorated with pieces all painted in MMSMP.

  40. Kate Bottrell

    I already subscribe 🙂
    I’ve tried the wisk but am very clumsy with it … so I prefer to mix in a glass jug with a large paddle pop stick stirrer. Heavy on the arm muscles, but I’m happy with the result 😉

  41. CK Izawa

    I haven’t tried Milk Paint yet, but, if perchance I win this giveaway, I will attempt mixing it using a couple chopsticks or a plastic spoon if that fails.

  42. janet

    I haven’t tried the paint yet, but I have a tiny handheld mixer, similar to the one you sell, that I plan to use.

  43. Carol G

    My favorite way to mix is by first using a small strainer for the powder, and then adding water. Next I wisk with the mini wisk. Not a lump to be seen!

  44. PC

    I mix with a whisk and add other colors as needed. Linen and Typewriter are my light and dark influencers.

  45. Zsuzsanna Zima-Barna

    I am already subscribed to your blog, following you on Facebook and Pinterest. And I prefer mixing paint with a simple stick.

  46. Tracie O'Brien

    Well, if I ever had the chance to get some MMSMP, I think my preferred way would be with that cool little stir-er thingy 🙂

  47. Kristine Petersen

    I would love to win! I love all the MMS products!! This would be the best Christmas present!!!
