Make It: Chalkboard Paint
Yes you can. Chalkboard paint is ridiculously easy to make. The great thing about making it yourself is the array of colours you can make it in! Do a small project like a message board or go big and turn your kids play room into one big chalkboard! *Update! 1 Cup of latex house paint or acrylic craft paint 1 TBSP of non-sanded tile grout Mix together until there are no lumps. Yes. Paint your surface with the mixture. Let it dry completely. Get some chalk. Draw! And just in case you were wondering… clean up is no problem. I popped my chalkboard into an old frame I had. *Amendment*If you find the chalkboard surface is too rough once dried, sand the surface lightly with a fine grit sand paper, then, using the side of a piece of chalk, rub it across the entire surface of the board. Plaster of Paris Method Hey all. 1 part plaster of paris 1 part hot water 2 parts flat latex paint Combine hot water and plaster of paris mixing well, then add to paint until well combined.
