Hi Friends! I have been asked many times about making my own chalk paint. Turns out it is super easy. Watch the video to see how:
Chalk Paint Recipe:
3 parts acrylic paint
1 part plaster of paris powder
Directions: Mix well until no lumps or grit remains. If your paint is really thick use less plaster. If it is too thick to brush on add a few drops of water and mix again.
This paint is super opaque and you probably won’t need primer over it. If you are using this on furniture I recommend adding a protective coat of furniture wax or satin polyurethane. If you want to use this to make a chalkboard surface don’t add a sealer but let it dry and cure for a couple of days before using. I hope you like this easy DIY project and let me know if you try it out! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
