How to Condition a Surface Painted with Chalkboard Paint

Before personalizing a chalkboard by writing messages in chalk, it is always best to condition the painted chalkboard.

  1. While holding a stick of white chalk on its side, wipe over the entire painted chalkboard area.
  2. Next, erase the chalk. This will condition the painted chalkboard surface. NOTE: If a surface is not conditioned, a ghost image of what was first written, even after erasing, will always been seen.
