If you don’t like the time and drudgery of priming and sanding a surface to prep it for painting, then chalk paint is something that you should look into. It doesn’t need any striping, sanding, or lengthy prep before applying it to a surface. It can be used for indoor and outdoor uses, and is available in a variety of different colors.
Chalk paint is best when used just as it is out of the can, but it can also be altered to further diversify its creative uses. It can be thickened when allowed exposure to the air for a period of time, or, by adding water it will become smoother and finer. If more water is added it can be made into a wash.
