Chalkboard paint is fairly easy to make. It takes 1 part non sanded grout to 8 parts paint. Non sanded grout is available at any home improvement store.

if you want to have a chalkboard wall, then go to the paint store and ask for some chalkboard paint. apply 6 or 7 coats. I have a chalkboard wall and everyone loves it.

Re-paint it with chalkboard paint, cheap and simple.

Rust-o-leum makes a magnetic primer, and you can paint over that with your chalkboard paint.

If finished properly chalkboard paint would work just as a regular chalkboard would. Depending on the wall type you may need to sand the paint after every layer dries to create a smooth chalkboard-like surface on a wall.

Chalkboard paint is specifically designed to be porous in order for the chalk to adhere to it. Using a sealer of any kind over it will result in loosing the porosity or tooth, rendering the chalkboard useless.

You would need to apply a high adhesion primer, such as XIM or a two part epoxy primer, which will adhere to the ceramic surface, prior to applying the chalkboard paint.

People think of chalkboard paint as a fun option for a child's playroom, but it actually can be helpful in any room of the house. A small square of chalkboard paint in the kitchen creates a wonderful place for shopping lists, family notes, or that new recipe you want to try this week, and a chalkboard in your home office can be a huge improvement over a post-it note jungle.

chalk board paint is about $12 a pint regular paint is about $12 a gallon

There is a specific chalkboard paint made these days. You can find it in home improvement stores. However, you can also easily make your own, the instructions can be found on Pinterest.

Regular paint mixed with tile gout that is non-sanded would work just fine. Just use any color of unleaded paint to make a chalk board that is a delight to use.

Generally speaking, yes. As long as both paints are the same base (latex, acrylic, oil), if they are different bases, you can paint an oil base over a water base, but not the other way around. It will help if you very lightly sand the magnetic paint before you add the chalkboard paint.

$9-$12 Does anyone know how far it goes?

The chalkboard was ivented in 1820

Yes, Surprisingly enough. Chalk paint is a fairly simple process, it can be applied to virtually any surface. Formulated with extremely hard pigments so it won't leave scratch marks where the chalk was used. Converts wood, metal, plastic, glass, paperboard, and hardboard into a usable chalkboard.

the chalkboard is moving. if move is going to be used it is. the chalkboard can move for example.

Yes, chalkboard is a compound word.

I think you can just wipe it with a baby wipe

EL borrador means chalkboard eraser.

If you are removing drips, it is fairly straight forward. Most hardware stores carry a little something called a paint scraper. It is a metal (or plastic) handle with a single edged razor in it. Gently slide the blade (at a flat angle) along the surface of the glass of the mirror and scrape of the drips.If you have completely covered the mirror with chalkboard paint, my suggestion is to buy another mirror. The time, effort, and frustration of removing that much paint is not worth what it will cost for the mirror.

Chalkboard paint (both green and black) are usually oil base. If you want to remove a drip that happened when you were applying the paint, use a cotton swab dampened with mineral spirits if the drip is fresh (has not dried yet). If it has dried then sanding is your best choice. However, if this is a finish that has been in place for some time, then the best thing to do is lightly sand the entire surface, paying special attention to the edges where the chalkboard paint may sit proud (raised slightly above the surface it is painted on). Apply a good quality oil based primer, allow this to dry completely, then top-caot the entire wall with your choice of colour, finish and base paint. *Note: it is possible to paint a latex top-coat over an oil based primer.

A dry chalkboard eraser is an insulator.

Chalkboard - typeface - was created in 2003.

porcelain enamel ---- Originally, chalkboards were made from slate, a naturally occurring material. Nowadays, any surface can be made into a chalkboard (like a child's bedroom wall or a kitchen cabinet door for grocery lists) by applying a type of paint specifically formulated for that purpose.
