Chalk-Finish Paint Recipe - Mix 1/3 cup of plaster of Paris and 1/3 cup of cool water; stir until completely smooth. Mix that with 1 cup of latex paint and stir thoroughly. This will make enough chalk-finish paint for one coat on a six-drawer dresser. Chalk-finish paint should not be stored and reused. If you have a smaller project, mix smaller amounts of plaster, paint, and water in the same proportions.
Make your own chalk paint! This is how I make mine. 1 part plaster of paris ($7 for a container that lasts!) 1 part water 3 parts latex paint ($3 for a sample size 7.5 to 8 oz) That's it! And the paint samples at Lowe's or Home Depot are perfect for making a single batch of a fun color. Soooo much cheaper than Anne Sloan.
