Chalk Paint

Chalk paint is a traditional finish that's enjoying a renaissance because of the beautiful, matte finish it imparts to the restoration of flea market finds and other functional but dated furniture pieces, as well as walls and floors. The name chalk paint is evocative of the flat finish this paint produces, but it is not simply paint with chalk added to it. It's not chalkboard paint, and it's not made with plaster of Paris or grout, although those ingredients are readily available and will produce interesting effects of their own when mixed in latex paint bases.

Chalk paint is a very desirable finish because it adheres to most surfaces, and it creates beautiful results quickly and easily. It can be used for textured finishes, distressed finishes, smooth modern finishes and even as a wash. So, although the name "Chalk Paint" has been registered by a single company, there are, in fact, many chalk paints on the market today. 

Why did we choose Webster's Chalk Paint Powder?

After sampling the leading brands of pre-mixed chalk paint and comparing their relative advantages, we decided on Webster's Chalk Paint Powder for a number of reasons.  Foremost among these was our sincere desire to offer our customers a quality product at a reasonable price, one that delivers all the important features of pre-mix products but with other significant benefits.  

Webster's has several advantages we think are worth considering:

Webster's Chalk Paint Powder can be mixed in any color, a huge advantage over the leading brands, which have limited palettes of just 36 colors each.

Webster's Chalk Paint Powder can be mixed in any sheen, so if you prefer a satin or semi-gloss finish, you are not limited to a flat finish.

Webster's Chalk Paint Powder can be mixed in any quantity, so if you need a gallon or you need a pint, you don't have to buy too little or too much.

Webster's Chalk Paint Powder can be mixed in zero VOC paints mixed with zero VOC tints (the leading European brands of chalk paint are low VOC), resulting in a healthier finish, a lower carbon footprint and better indoor air quality.

Webster's Chalk Paint Powder is cost effective, costing $8.00 to $10.00 less per quart than the leading pre-mix brands.

Webster's Chalk Paint Powder is made from all natural ingredients.

Webster's Chalk Paint Powder goes on like silk, you're going to love it!

When to Wax Chalk Painted Surfaces

To enhance the depth of color of the painted surface or add an aged effect, you can use a a clear or dark wax to advantage.  Apply with a rag on large, smooth surfaces or with a stiff brush on highly detailed trim, then buff to a soft shine.

When to Seal Chalk Painted Surfaces

Matte finishes tend to be absorbent, so for high use surfaces that will be wiped often (such as kitchen cabinets and tables), Webster's recommends a waterproof sealer, such as Safecoat Polyureseal (a very low VOC finish that we also have in stock).
