I watched Miss Mustard Seed's videos...a few times... and made up a small batch of milk paint. Equal parts powder to equal parts water.
"This is thin." I think.
Watch the video again.
Seems like I'm doing this right. I think.
Let me be honest with you. I get flustered sometimes.
I KNOW this is going to work but, what if I'm wrong?
I would never let anyone else know what I'm thinking. Pride.
"I'm super excited about this project." I say with glee.
I wait until no one else is in the building.
(I work in a beautiful Consignment Shop and my wonderful boss
let's me do side projects when it's slow.)
I put on the first coat...it's thin, it's a little grainy, it's drippy. "Crap."
I bravely press forward and get a first coat, and then a second thinner coat.
