Chalkboard paint tips & tricks: There’s a method to applying chalkboard paint that will make your walls look their best. Make sure to heed these do’s and don’ts, from what surface to paint to how long you should wait between coats to which kind of chalk to use once it’s good to go.
TIPS: 1. Use spray paint. 2. Clean the glass REALLY well. Paint will not adhere very well to dirt or grease. I use isopropyl alcohol to clean any glass or porcelain surfaces that I'm trying to paint. 3. Lightly sand. 4. Use multiple, light coats. 5. rub chalk over the whole surface prior to the first use. (this will prevent any 'burned in' images)
