Chalk Paint Vs Milk Paint

 Chalk Paint Verses Milk Paint
I tested out the chalk and milk paints from Plaid and FolkArt.
They are both very satisfying paints with not a lot of hassle and the results are incredible!
 I used 2 large wood frames from Plaid
 Painted one with one layer of chalk paint and the other with one layer of milk paint.
I love them.  Then I lightly sanded the edges on each.
 Chalk Paint:
Distresses well
Is easy to apply, doesn't need primer
Can be applied with a roller, brush or sprayer
and has an ultra matte chalky finish
Coated with wax (optional) for variety of finishes
Layers colors easily

Milk Paint:
Gets better with age and self-distresses over time
No fumes and can be washed out in the kitchen sink
No sanding required
Can be applied with a roller, brush or sprayer too
Can get clumpy, so it doesn't last as long...get it and use it.
Can be thinned with warm water and used as a wash or stain
Better for the chippy look
They are both fantastic and vibrant!
Can't wait to do more with them!!!

What is your experience with Chalk or Milk paint?
