Rust-Oleum Magnetic Chalkboard Paint is a tough, scratch resistant finish that allows you to create a writeable / wipeable chalkboard surface that attracts magnets.

Tip – Strong magnets with minimal weight adhere best to treated surface.

  • Converts surfaces into a usable chalkboard.
  • Requires 3 coats (recommend sanding surface smooth before final coat applied).
  • For interior wood, metal, masonry, plaster and more.
  • Great for offices, workshops and kid’s bedrooms.
  • Cleans with soap and water.
  • Erases cleanly.
  • For interior use only.

Instructions for use


Create a magnetic chalkboard, perfect for walls, wood, metal and more. Works with conventional chalks and liquid chalk markers. Quick-drying formulation.

Ideal for use on 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. A minimum of 3 coats are recommended, to be applied at a coverage rate of 5mÇ/L/coat. Best results are achieved with strong, light magnets.

Stir well before use. Use only when temperature is between 10-32oC and humidity is below 85% to ensure proper drying.

Dry It

Dries to touch in 30-60 minutes.

Allow at least 2 hours between coats. Allow a minimum of 24 hours before applying chalk.

Cover It

Up to 14m² per litre.

Clean It

Clean brushes immediately after use with White Spirit.
