    Homemade Chalk Paint – Not Bad!!!Hey all. Here is an update! Here is another method for chalkpaint which is also very successful and especially helpful for refinishing furniture, using Plaster of Paris. 1 part plaster of paris 1 part hot water 2 parts flat latex paint Combine hot water and plaster of paris mixing well, then add to paint until well combined. Paint as desired. You may find more coats are needed with this mixture. If using for furniture, finish with a rub on wax paste.
