Chalkboard Paint is perfect for walls, wood, metal, plastic, paper and most other surfaces – please test on a small area first to check adhesion and compatibility.

Prepare It

Previously painted surfaces should be lightly abraded to provide a key. Bare metal and wood should be suitably primed prior to painting.

Apply It

Apply paint with a soft brush using light even strokes taking care to avoid unsightly runs. 2 coats required, apply at a coverage rate of 10m²/L/coat.

Dry It

Dries to touch in 30-60 minutes. Drying times are based on warm (15oC), dry applications conditions with good ventilation. Lower temperatures and higher humidity will prolong drying times.

Cover It
