We've created a special batch of Mango stools for West Coast Craft their summer 2023 show. These two-tone stools have lots of movement and color ranging from persimmon to yellow. Here are a few candid shots of the team putting this batch together. FYI, if you can't wait for WCC or live far away, snag one online now.

To achieve the variegated color on this mango batch, we started with Persimmon for the first coat and Yellow on top. As we sand through the top yellow layer we begin to uncover the bright persimmon below. While the CNC help us prepare the parts, it's the team's hands that give them life.
Yellow milk paint in powder form. This is how we receive our paint before mixing with water.

Here are some stools after their second coat of paint. The natural pigments from Real Milk Paint are 100% organic, non-toxic, food contact safe and VOC free. They are even biodegradable and compostable. Unlike your box store latex paint, each pigment requires a little different mix and approach.
The end result.. Definitely worth it!
