I love using Miss Mustardseed’s Milk Paint on my signs, and have been very surprised at how well it bonds to the underlying surfaces. There are times when I would like to force more chippiness from it, and I accidentally discovered a method that does that when I was taping something on my sign. Use Frog Tape !
To demonstrate this technique, I put a little piece of Frog Tape on the area I wanted to chip and rubbed it with my fingernail.
Then I pulled off the tape and off came more paint! The less pressure I applied to the tape the less paint was removed from my piece.
I didn’t use a bonding agent in the milk paint on this piece, so I can’t say if the tape would lift the paint if you used a bonding agent. But in my situation, Frog Tape worked great and added more rustic chippiness to my piece.
Thanks for stopping by!
I will be linking this up with Miss Mustardseed’s Furniture Feature Friday.
