Leisure Arts - A Beginner's Guide To Chalk Painting

  • Featuring FolkArt Home Decor Chalk, A Beginner's Guide to Chalk Painting teaches you how to transform everyday items into one-of-a-kind treasures. The no-prep acrylic paint dries in minutes and can be layered and sanded for a perfect distressed look and feel. Home Decor Wax adds durability and buffs to a soft sheen.

    • Basic Base Coating (Lamp and Shade, Bookcase)
    • Distressed (Hoosier Cabinet, Jars)
    • Wood Tint (Reverse Tinted Dresser, Tray)
    • Patina/Combed (Dresser, Ornamental Box)
    • Weathered (Cabinet, Lanterns, Shells)
    • Rust/Patina (Metal Monogram, Shutters)
    • and Rough/Chippy (Vinyl Floor Covering, Table, Spice Rack).
