Rainforest Chalk Paint
Rainforest Chalk Paint is a blend of our Australian Made natural Marilyn’s Chalk Paint Powder and our own environmentally acrylic paint.
This is a rich bold green in colour and is particularly grand when used with our Metallic Gold Chalk Paint as a base coat, then our Crackle or simply highlighted with our Metallic Silver Chalk Paint or Gold Chalk Paint as per the photo. This beautiful sideboard was painted in ‘Heritage’ and subsequently aged with dark wax
It’s really very easy to literally ‘fall in Love’ with chalk painting furniture. Firstly, chalk painting is exciting and secondly, it inspires the creative inner you! Without the need to prep your soon to be “designer piece” it is a very soothing past time and with Marilyn’s chalk paint powder your paint will adhere extremely well to all surfaces, is super thick, creamy and goes much further than normal acrylic paint – that is our secret. You literally take yourself into a different ‘zone’ away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. If you enjoy relaxing with a good book on the back verandah, you will indeed learn that chalk painting is just as relaxing and, what’s more, you have the enjoyment of a new piece of furniture at the end. I mean, in the matter of a few hours you can take something from trash to treasure without spending a lot. It makes us feel powerful! It’s no wonder it has taken the DIY world by storm. Still, as with any technique it can have its pitfalls and challenges. But when you are armed with knowledge you will have nothing to fear and will be able to enjoy all the great reasons why, at Marilyn’s, we love chalk painting and the myriad of finishes available to update furniture at a fraction of the cost.
