There has been a lot of buzz over the years about chalk paint.
Chalk paint is a non-toxic solution for painting. It is a water-based product that can also be used to dye fabrics. Instead of paying a large sum of money to reupholster an item, one can use the existing fabric and dye it with chalk-paint and water. Another component of chalk paint is the finishing options. With the use of wax a certain piece of furniture can be modern or can be antiqued. That is the primary difference between using a contrasting wax color to the paint. For example, using the black wax coating on a lighter colored paint will make the overall surface antiqued with streaks of varied color.
Another aspect of chalk paint is the ability to sand the painted surface to reveal previous colors. If you were to paint an item that was previously teal, then once it is coated with the chalk paint a sand paper can be applied to the surface to reveal that color through as an accent.
Talking about the use of Chalk Paint as an option is important because there are less toxins. It is a paint type recommended when painting kid’s rooms to prevent them from being around harmful fumes.
