cabs with Chalk Paint®
Large Syringes – To measure paint
amounts when mixing for a custom color. Or if you want to keep your can top
clean for a tight fit, suction out paint with the syringe and put paint in
separate container while painting.
Tip of the Month:
super smooth finish that feels like silk to your touch? Buy 440-660 grit
sandpaper and sand gently between Chalk Paint® coats. This removes even the
faintest hint of brush stroke lines. Also be sure to water that second coat down
just a tad with distilled water to help level your brush strokes. 0000 grade
steel wool will do the same. But be sure to not apply lots of pressure or you
may burnish the paint (making it shine) which makes it difficult to apply the
wax. You may also sand gently after each coat of wax before
