The Chalk Paint™ Colour Card. The Chalk Paint® Colour Card features Annie Sloan's carefully curated palette of 42 shades, along with the inspiration and story behind each colour.
You can mix any of the colours in the Chalk Paint® palette to create the right colour for your project. In this video, Annie shows just how easy it is to get exactly the colour you need to create the perfect mid-century modern look.
Dulux Design Chalk Effect is an ultra matt chalk paint designed for you to create a unique look within your home. With pastels, dark and bright colours available, Chalk Effect can be sanded back to create a vintage distressed look.
Greens, greys, whites and beiges are no-brainers. Warmer colours, like orange, brown, rust and red, work too, but the deeper tones of these colours work best.
To make your own chalk paint, all you need is water, cornstarch and food coloring. Mix the water and cornstarch in equal parts (I used 1/2 cup of each) and add food coloring until it reaches the color desired – it will dry more muted than the colors you see in the cups.
The cool thing about the Behr chalk paint is that it's easily tintable to match almost any Behr color. There's a dark base and a white base, which is what I used for today's comparison, but you can tint the paint using any color you like.
Mix 1 cup of paint with 1/3 cup of cool water and 1/3 cup of plaster of Paris. Stir until smooth, and you've got your own chalk-finish paint. This will make enough paint for one coat on a standard six-drawer dresser.
Chalk Paint® can be applied to walls. It gives a wonderful texture and matt look. Use a large brush to apply Chalk Paint® to walls, like the Annie Sloan Wall Paint Brush. A brush will use less paint than a roller (see Annie and Felix's experiment here) and will add depth and texture to the final finish.
Chalk Gray is a white with a gray undertone. Depending on the light source or time of day, it may appear as chalk dust white on the surface. Visualize this color in your own space.
A decorative paint known for its matte, chalky appearance, chalk paint is a popular choice for giving furniture and home decor a rustic, vintage, or shabby-chic style. Because it can easily be given a distressed look, chalk paint is ideal for those who want to add character and vintage charm to their home.
You have to also be careful to apply wax very evenly. What happens if you don't wax chalk paint evenly is that built-up of too much wax can attract dirt. But a thin layer of wax could allow water to penetrate so be sure to use coasters on pieces that get a lot of use.
Can You Blend Latex With Chalk Paint? Spray a paint of your choice as part of a chalk mixture, and you'll have eggshell, satin finish, paint & primer all at work. The tests they all have worked and I've done them all. Flat latex paint was the way I did it, resulting in the smoothest/flattest finishing.
Can You Add Emulsion To Chalk Paint? Yes. Paints that are water-based can be used in these recipes. A latex or acrylic coating, crafts paint, or emulsion (in the UK), is latex or acrylic.
You can get customize the shade of any chalk paint color by adding Pure White or Old Whites. If you want to control the shade, you can add these two paints.
ByBrittney. All-purpose acrylic craft paint and the “Outdoor” formula of craft paint have been tested to make chalk paint, as well as other types of craft paint. It's a perfect combination between the two.
Food coloring can be used to tint water-based paint, but it is not recommended. Keep other house paint in mind when tinting interior paint.
Can You Paint Over Chalk Paint With Another Color? Yes, you can!
Muted tones found in nature like mossy green, sage, cool blue-grey and seafoam green work well. To keep it simple, I'd stay away from vibrant yellows, very yellowy beiges and reds - these are hard to pull off with all of the warm tones already in the wood.
Teak is a tawny golden color with dark brown and gold streaks when freshly cut. Over time, this color lightens as it dries, giving it a regal, aged look. It's this beauty and durability that makes Teak a popular choice for both interior and exterior wood furniture, flooring, paneling, trim and elsewhere.
