Product Description

Grit – Aging Dust is a natural compound used for giving your painted pieces an “aged” look.  Used primarily for highly carved or decorative areas, the dust settles into the grooves giving the appearance of age over time.  This technique is often found in fine antiques and high end furniture pieces.

Directions for use:

Technique #1:  Apply a slightly heavier than normal coat of clear wax using a wax brush and when the wax is no longer wet, but still tacky, sprinkle a generous amount of Grit Aging Dust across the surface and allow to dry for 30 minutes. Lightly brush off the excess dust and polish the piece with our Better than Cheesecloth.

Technique #2:  Apply a slightly heavier than normal coat of clear wax and then sprinkle on the desired amount of dust.  With the wax still wet, take your wax brush and work the aging dust into the crevices and details of your piece until you get the desired look.  Wait for the wax to dry and then buff until smooth.  If you want a more “aged” or “dirty” look, repeat the process.   Gorgeous!!

One container contains 5 oz. of powder and will last you through tons of projects!



    Sweet Pickins Milk Paint is a true milk paint which comes in a powder form.  Our Milk Paint is environmentally safe, non-toxic and is food safe. There is a slight milky odor when it is applied, but it is completely odorless when dry. Our Milk paint is 100% VOC free and is made with all natural earth materials.

    Mixing & Coverage

    To make the paint, you simply mix the powder with warm water.  How far the paint goes will depend upon your painting technique, how thick/thin you mix the paint, how many coats you do and the contrast between the color your are painting compared to the piece your are painting.

    • 2 oz. sample – covers approx 12 sq ft.
    • 6 oz. pint – covers approx 36 sq ft.
    • 12 oz. quart – covers approx 72 sq ft.
    Add Extra Bond when painting over a nonporous or previously finished/painted piece of furniture.  The Extra – Bond will ensure adhesion and give you better control over chipping.  I highly recommend to always have the Extra Bond on hand when using milk paint.  Milk paint is known for its unpredictability when not using the Extra Bond. 
    • Because milk paint comes in a powder form, you can control how thick/thin you mix the paint.   You can use it as you would regular paint, thinner for a wash/stain or thicker to create texture.
    • Milk Paint can naturally chip or crackle when applied over some existing finishes.  This can result in an authentic look reminiscent of a chippy/aged/timeworn piece of furniture.
    • Sweet Pickins Milk Paint colors can be mixed together to achieve your own custom colors.  You can also add white to lighten or black to darken.  Remember to keep your ratios if you want to recreate the color!
    • Sweet Pickins Milk Paint can be top coated with any available product on the market.  To protect milk paint from water spots and make it easier to clean, it must be top coated.
    • Many variations in color and texture naturally occur on milk painted pieces and this is completely normal.  These unique variations which only come with true milk paint, add depth and dimension to each project.
    • You can use the same techniques for distressing and glazing milk paint as you would any other paint.  Don’t be afraid to experiment!
