Homemade Chalk Paint- Plaster Paris Version

I’m sure most of you know this, but if you’re not yet familiar with chalk paint, you don’t need to spend hours prepping your piece before starting to paint. NO SANDING REQUIRED! Plus, when you make your own, the color combinations can be endless.

Here is the recipe, keep in mind like any good recipe, you might want to add in your own touch once you’ve become familiar with the concept.

  • 2 Cups Paint
  • 5 Tbsp. Plaster of Paris
  • 2 Tbsp. Water

Mix Plaster of Paris into water and stir until combined. Add to paint and stir evenly… (Can add more Plaster of Paris and water mixture if needed).

To finish off your piece you can glaze or just wax with a soft furniture wax.
