Here’s what you will need: Dry Non-Sanded Grout (purchased this huge tin at our local City Mill hardware store for $1.50…this will probably last me forever) Acrylic craft paints – White, Black, and Bright Magenta (Apple Barrel line by Plaid, found at Wal-mart) NOTE: Our craft stores here on the island are somewhat lacking, so I wasn’t able to find anything perfectly matching Honeysuckle. I will give you my "formula" with those combined colors. Measuring spoons and cups Mixing cup or bowl Paint brush or stick to stir Step 1) Measure 1 1/2 teaspoons of the non-sanded grout and put in your mixing cup (this is very dusty, so please do this in a well-ventilated area). Step 2) Pour in 1/4 cup of the Pepto Bismol Bright Magenta craft paint. Step 3) Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of white acrylic craft paint. At that point, I really liked the color, but I was going for perfection, and I had the Pantone website up and was trying my very best to match what I saw on the screen. I could tell I needed to mute it slightly with some black. Step 4) Add 1/8 teaspoon black acrylic craft paint. Step 5) Stir for a couple minutes with a cheap paintbrush or stick. (I’m not really left-handed, but I stink at taking pics with my left hand! ha) This next pic is to show you that the consistency WILL BE SLIGHTLY LUMPY still. The grout is very fine, so when you brush it on, it spreads right out and isn’t noticeable at all. Step 6) Apply it with a sponge brush. (Hey, look! I took a pic with my left hand!) You will need between 1 and 3 coats depending on your medium. For my wooden calendar, I used 3 coats on top of a piece of 1/8" MDF (I primed with Zinsser water-based primer). As with any chalkboard paint, you will need to prep the surface once it is completely dry by rubbing a piece of chalk across the entire board (easiest if you turn the chalk on its side). Then erase completely, and it’s ready to go!
