Here’s a great side-by-side comparison of Annie Sloan’s Arles with dark wax and Miss Mustard Seed’s Mustard Seed with Antiquing Wax…
milk paint with antiquing wax
Pretty similar, don’t you think?
I use both milk paint and chalk paint (and latex and craft paint, for that matter!). I use milk paint more because I like to have samples of all the colors in the Miss Mustard Seed line in the store.
Of the chalk paints, I like Annie Sloan for regular painting. I love Cee Cee Caldwells for stencils. You can do either a dry or wet distress and it looks old and worn. Maison Blanche is great to create different patterns and more specialty painting.
The next time someone asks, I guess I’ll have an answer!!
Bye for now,
