 Doenst mater if you cook like me ( guesstimate measurements) or you follow exactly what the recipe says. That is how we get our own comfort zone and style here in MMS paint world.

recipie for mms 015I had recieved some extra product in the mail from the fabulous All Dolled Up (her customer service gets a A+ from me). Inspired by her containers she uses in her store came this post & made me think of a recipe for “cooking”. I have mixed colors many of times but never thought to share in this way.
Here is what I like to mix with , good old plastic fork and dollar store plastic cups.

Measurements for today’s recipe is I first mix 1/4 c paint to 1/4 c warm water. MMS french enamel here.

I next mix my second color (boxwood) the same way and in a separate cup. 1/4c paint to 1/4c warm water. TIP: I always mixe my colors separate and then combine small amounts at a time to achieve what I want. In this case I added most of the boxwwod I had mixed.

Next, not quiet what you want? Time to add some seasoning … my choice happens to be January’s color of the month Ironstone, I mixed a 1/8 c and added it.
