Related FAQs

What is the difference between Chalkboard paint and FolkArt Home Decor Chalk?
Chalkboard paint, when applied to a variety of surfaces, will create chalkboards. Sticks of chalk can then be used to write on the chalkboards. FolkArt Home Decor Chalk is an acrylic paint that dries within minutes to an ultra matte finish.
Due to its thick consistency, this paint can be used in one quick and easy application to cover your project with one coat. It is easy to sand for a distressed look and has a beautiful satin finish after the wax is applied.
On what surfaces can FolkArt® Chalkboard Paint be used?
FolkArt® Chalkboard Paint can be applied to many surfaces: wood, terra cotta, paper maché, canvas and most porous surfaces.
How should I apply FolkArt® Chalkboard Paint?
A soft bristle brush, roller or sponge applicator is the best way to apply FolkArt® Chalkboard paint to the surface of choice.
Is it better to apply thin coats or thick coats of the FolkArt® Chalkboard Paint?
It is best to apply several thin coats of paint, allowing the paint to dry between coats.
Does my project need to be painted in a specific direction, such as with the grain of the wood?
No, it does not matter if the FolkArt® Chalkboard Paint is applied with the grain.
What is the dry time/cure time for FolkArt® Chalkboard Paint?
Dry time between coats is 1 hour and cure time is 24 hours depending on humidity.
Can I mix FolkArt® Chalkboard Paint with water, mediums or acrylic paints?
No, FolkArt® Chalkboard Paint should not be mixed with water, mediums or other acrylic paints. Mixing with anything other than other FolkArt® Chalkboard Paints will destroy the properties that make the paint work as a chalkboard surface.
Can I mix FolkArt® Chalkboard Paints together to achieve other colors?
Yes, FolkArt® Chalkboard Paint can be mixed with other FolkArt® Chalkboard Paints to achieve a different color palette.
Is FolkArt® Chalkboard Paint durable?
Yes, FolkArt® Chalkboard Paint dries to a tough finish.
Is there anything special that needs to be done to the painted surface before using it as a chalkboard?
The surface should be “conditioned” before use. To condition the surface, wait 24 hours (recommended cure time) after the last coat of paint. Lay a piece of chalk on its side and rub on surface side to side. Dampen a paper towel with water and wipe the surface to remove chalk dust.
