  • Mixing the chalk paint in plastic paint pails/buckets allows for a small quantity of paint without a lot of waste. Do not store chalk paint for reuse. Mix the quantity of paint you think you will use.
  • If you wish to have a more chalky feel in your project, you can add more chalk powder and water mixture up to 1/3 cup of chalk powder and 1/3 cup water to one cup or 8 oz of Olde Century Colors paint. Try this recipe after you have experimented with the original formula. Work your way up to what you are looking for.
  • Once you have determined what works best for you, write down the proportion formula and you are on your way to a successful project.
  • Test boards are highly recommended.
  • Follow all of the precautions on the label of the Olde Century Colors Chalk Powder.
