Using chalk, you are able to create intricate and varied designs using your own imagination. Chalk paint also comes in a variety of colors including, green, red, blue, yellow, mauve, pink, etc.
Chalk painting is ideal for many areas in the home
The possibilities are endless. You can create a rustic country feel, a modern look, an antique or Victorian feel, or a contemporary feel to your home with chalk painting. If you want a chalk painting that is colorful, you can have the colors mixed individually, or you can have an entire room done in chalk paint.
It is also ideal to do a dry-run before doing the actual painting project if possible, using the same areas but in different colors. The best way to apply chalk to a surface is to first use a damp rag or brush to apply the wax, and then dip the brush in the sanding compound so that the bristles will be covered in the wax. This allows for more control and accuracy when applying the paint. Once the area is ready to go, you can apply the pigment or coloring to your wall.
