    I am planning on using milk paint for a project which will be trimmed with some unpainted wood.  If I painted the carcass before applying the wood is the milk paint going to cause adherence issues with the wood trim when gluing it on to the carcass?

    I’ve never used milk paint before so I don’t know much about it.

    Sorry, Dave, no experience there: I glued up then painted, or else masked off the glue surface before painting.  Curious to see what you find, though.  Keep us posted.

    I was told it may interfere with pva glue.

    I think to be safe I would go with Justin’s suggestion. Or you could glue on your trim first, then mask it before painting. One other solution I read was to paint the carcass, then lightly scratch the area where   the trim will be glued, make sure you expose the wood under the paint.

    Ken,  I ended up scribing a pencil line where the trim begins and painted to that line or a little beyond it.  As added security I installed screws from the inside to secure the skirt/trim/kickboard or whatever its called.   All is good now  till the next phase!
