I have a birdhouse project planned as a mother's day present for my wife. I plane to turn a spindle post and put a simple bird house on top. My 10 YO daughter will paint it (post and house).
The pallet available in milk paints would work very well.
Would it make sense to buy milk paint and put some form of water-based UV inhibitor poly on it, or should I buy regular house paint.
My daughter will grow impatient if 2-3 coats of paint are required, so coverage is also a consideration (though I can put on the extra coat(s)).
