How To Use Waverly Inspirations® Chalk

How To Use Waverly Inspirations® Chalk

Waverly Inspirations® Chalk is water-based and non-toxic. Use on wood, furniture, craft projects, decorative glass, metal, and more. Works well for pouring and stenciling. For indoor use only. Not dishwasher safe or machine washable.

Surface Prep:

No sanding, stripping, or priming is needed. When painting on previously used furniture, simply clean the surface using a glass cleaner to remove dirt or dust particles. When painting on glass surfaces, make sure to clean the surface using rubbing alcohol.

Directions:

Shake paint well. Waverly Inspirations® Chalk is best applied using a large bristle brush. This helps to work the paint into all crevices and corners of your project. Brush paint on using repeated, long swiping motions to achieve a smooth finish. You can also apply your paint using a roller for larger surface areas. Apply the first coat and allow to dry for 2 hours. Apply additional coats until desired coverage is achieved, making sure to allow 2 hours between coats. Allow 48 hours for the paint to cure. For extra velvet finish and protection apply wax to your project after the paint has cured.

Clean Up and After Care:

Clean brushes and tools while wet with soap and water. Work soap into brush bristles to create a lather and rinse well. Clean project surfaces with a soft cloth moistened with warm water and mild soap. Consumer furniture polishes are also suitable for regular cleaning of waxed surfaces as needed.
