Friday Fun Pt: 1 Make Your Own Chalkboard Paint

Chalboards are everywhere in crafting these days: mugs, t-shirts, jars–you name it. But chalkboard paint is expensive, especially when you’re talking itsy-bitsy crafts. And you can only buy cans of green or black.

What I learned from apartmenttherapy.com will let you make chalkboards ANY color you like.

What You’ll Need:

3 teaspoons acrylic paint (color of choice)
1 1/2 teaspoons glazing medium (water-based)
1/2 teaspoon powdered tile grout

NOTE: Mix only as much as you’ll use at one time. This paint doesn’t store well.
