Let’s Get Started: Painting Clouds with a Sponge

The first step is to mix the milk paint powder with equal parts water. You can mix it in jars or use a paint mixer. After shaking or mixing, let it rest for about 15 minutes until the paint becomes frothy. Remember to mix only the amount you need to avoid wastage.

Now comes the fun part! To achieve the cloudy effect, mix two batches of blue using the slate color. For a darker shade, add a bit of pitch black, and for a lighter shade, mix in some snow white. You’ll end up with two shades of blue in your plastic containers.

To create the cloudy effect, divide your wall into horizontal sections. Within each section, paint a swatch of the darker color (around two feet in height and length) and then add a bit of the lighter color on top. Use a dry brush to blend the paint, creating a seamless transition between the two shades.
