How to Make Your Own Chalkboard Paint - Video Recipe!
You can pretty much paint anything with chalkboard paint. If it is a plastic or other shiny surface then you will need to coat first with a primer designed for that kind of surface and then the chalkboard paint.
You can paint a cabinet door or tape off a piece of the wall or an entire wall to use as a note board and any other notices or lists needed. It definitely saves on paper.
But if you are looking for things to make and sell that include this special paint then you can paint tiny terra cotta pots for herbs and include seeds and a tag and wrap it up as a gift idea, or you can paint chalkboard frames, which means paint a wide frame with a painting or decoupage pretty pictures to it, and then place a chalkboard inside and hang on the wall. These make great gifts.
There are many creative ways to use this craft. But did you know that you can also make your own chalkboard paint? This is a much cheaper way to get more mileage out of the paint and also gives you more control for colours. Check out this video on just how to make your own.
If you don't want to make your own chalkboard paint then you can purchase it already made. But if you are watching your costs this is a great way to be able to use whatever colours you want for your projects.
Don't forget that after the paint is dry and has cured for at least 24 hours, you will need to "prime it" which basically means take the side of a piece of chalk and colour the board and then wipe it off with a cloth. This makes it so that any further chalk use will be able to wipe off easy and not leave a permanent mark or shadow.
