What is Chalk Paint?

Chalk Paint is a fantastic new self-priming, easy to use chalk paint that provides you with the ability to create shabby chic or distressed looks. Chalk Finish Paint removes the usual preparation that is necessary when using acrylic paints, no more sanding or priming needed! The paint is a water based paint and has very low VOC's (volatile organic compounds) and is enviromentally friendly.

The chalky nature of the paint provides for a beautifully aged matte finish and its adhering properties means that it can be used to paint over loads of different surfaces including lacquered furniture, veneer, wood, fabrics, glass, plastics, metals, walls, floors and the list goes on!
