-Plaster of Paris - I got this from Lowes for roughly $6.50.
Just in case you are like me and spend hours wondering around Lowes..this is found in the paint section.
- Container - I used an old Newman's Own tomato sauce jar
- Permanent marker
- Paint stir stick
1. Measure out 4 inches on jar and make hatch marks at each inch.
3. Add 1/4 cup of water and stir. You want to add water until you have a smooth consistency and there are no flakes or clumps.
4. Add paint until you reach the top hatch mark and then stir.
Here are a couple of pointers I have come across from trial and error.
- Use the Plaster of Paris first. It has a difficult time mixing with the paint if you pour the paint first.
- I added a little more Plaster of Paris then noted above because I wanted a more grittier..(is that word??) effect.
- When painting it is best to use a foam roller. Brush strokes and other imperfections are easily seen
- Chalk Paint can thicken after a couple of days. Just add water if you see that this is happening.
