Funny how the paint looks yellow in powder form.
As soon as you mix it in water it turns this lovely shade of green.
I scuffed up the finish with a sanding block and then painted the entire piece with the paint.
I was hoping the milk paint would do its magic and peel. It did on the red base, but not on the head so much so I simply sanded it in places.
I then waxed the entire piece and buffed it and this is how it turned out.
Now I am happy to hang it in the kitchen.
