Why Chalk Paint

Chalk Paint® is a very special paint for very many reasons

  1. It’s the BEST paint for painting furniture by a long way.
  2. You can use the paint by diluting it with water to make a wash to show the wood grain.
  3. You can use it as an impasto ( thickly) – leave the lid off to thicken.
  4. You can use it on almost any surface, indoors and out ( the outside of our shop was painted in it- perfect!).
  5. No need to prime or prepare.
  6. The colors are mixed intelligently and the web site shows how you can adapt your colors for your use.
  7. It’s a girls’ paint, but boys can use it too.
  8. It’s flexible so you can be creative and change you mind.
  9. The paint can be washed off your brush even when you find your brush weeks later. [I never do that of course.]
  10. It allows your walls to breathe so it is perfect for cottage walls.
  11. Extremely low VOCs so it is good for the environment.
  12. It doesn’t form a skin on it when you leave the lid off – just add some water if it’s too thick.
  13. Very little black is used in their manufacture so the colors are mixed with thought.
  14. You can paint it on walls for a soft matt effect or wax it for a polished plaster effect.
