Chalk Paint or Milk Paint? What's the difference

I love the different looks you can get from using milk paint and chalk paint. Great thing they are so easy to use but do you need to sand or strip? Both paints give amazing paint finishes; chalk paint finishes are a little consistent, whereas milk paint can be less predictable. So many questions and the answers are so easy.

      @Elaine CallawayandBilly Brooks you can make your own chalk paint very easily. Latex paint, plaster of Paris and water. You can just google chalk paint recipe using plaster of paris and there are a LOT of recipes.
