How to Use Chalk Paint _ You can use chalk paint on pretty much any surface, keeping these things in mind: Chalk paint is fairly thick, which means you don't have to sand or prime beforehand. This saves hours of prep work, especially when you are doing a big project like kitchen cabinets. (Although no sanding is required, you might want to wipe them down, however, especially if there's grease or residue buildup.) Paint as you would with ordinary paint to cover the surface. Chalk paint usually has less drips, and is quick to dry, often needing only an hour in between coats. Use your technique of choice to get a layered or distressed finish, or go for a solid opaque look. To seal the surface, apply two to three coats of wax after you've finished painting. When you need to touch up later, just use the same paint to cover up any spots or scratches, then wax right over it again. As long as you use the same color, you'll never know the difference. (Just save a little bit of any custom_blended paint so you don't have to try to color match the second time around.) Since this paint is water_based, clean up is easy and the same as latex paint.
