Best Chalk Paint Recipe
Looking for the BEST chalk paint recipe. Marilyn’s Chalk Powder is the best chalk paint recipe available. Giving a super-matte, super-adhesive finish it is a superior chalk paint product blending five natural ingredients.
At Marilyn’s we have tried them all, plaster of paris – too gritty – once dry, it takes forever to distress and reminds us of concrete; calcium carbonate – well, this is simply adding more of what a paint is made of anyway, so will have no effect to non-priming or it’s adhesive ability on your designer project! Talc or Baking Soda – really? Again, you need to know what chalk paint is…
As you are probably aware, chalk painting over the last few years is what everyone is ‘blogging’ about, although adding talc, plaster of paris, calcium carbonate, or whatever to your acrylic paint will simply take a low sheen paint to a matte paint. Fabo if you want ‘chalk board’ paint and your children can happily use crayons willy nilly – there’s a story about Willy Nilly but that can wait for another day!
The true essence of Chalk Paint is that it is not only gives super matte finish, it will adhere to almost any surface without the need to prime your designer project. It is a ‘glue paint’ (it’s the only way to describe true chalk paint!) and will adhere to almost any surface without the need to prime or prepare your designer project. You can paint over varnish; you can paint over veneer surfaces; your can paint laminate; you can paint tiles; etc. If you were to use a normal acrylic paint (even mixed with one of the ingredients mentioned above – making chalk board paint – your paint will not adhere to these sort of surfaces without either sanding or priming.
So, at Marilyn’s with our Chalk Paint Powder we offer our Australian market a product that will provide the true essence of chalk paint at a fraction of the cost. The joy is that you can mix as little as 250 mls of your chosen colour which gives you a myriad of colour options for your creative self!
Be Bold, Be Brave and Have Fun!
Enjoy, the team at Marilyn’s!
