DIY Chalk Paint - An Experiment - Part 1

DIY Chalk Paint - An Experiment - Part 1

I'm loving using chalk paint, it can be used on any surface with no prep needed beforehand, so no sanding or priming necessary!

Tootling around the internet for chalk paint suppliers I came across ways to make chalk paint. I have a box full of paint testers that were left over from choosing paint colours and some old tins of paint. I used some to make props for my photography and now it seems I can make chalk paint with the leftovers!

The ingredients are quite simple, Plaster of Paris, water, paint - I'm using Matt Emulsion plus a couple of plastic containers to mix it all up.

So this is where the experimenting starts!
