DIY Chalk Paint Recipe, Chalkboard Paint This is the recipe I keep seeing the professionals recommend when they use chalk paint on furniture. Just need: Paint, Hot Water, & Plaster of Paris
mix up some DIY Chalk Paint. If you use black paint the plaster of paris lightens the color slightly to a dark, charcoal gray (graphite?) When using plaster of paris in your homemade chalk paint, you will end up with small white specks in your paint that you wont notice when painting light colors, but when you are using dark colors they definitely show. Use it to your advantage on distressed or rustic pieces. Something to keep in mind if you're thinking of using the DIY Chalk Paint recipe.
