Which Volume Do I Need?

Paint Surfaces & Application

Blake & Taylor Chalk Furniture Paint can be used over timber, laminate, metal, laminex, varnish, fabric, water and oil based paint, clay, wicker and tiles without the need for priming or sanding. However, be aware that tannin rich timbers will firstly require a stain block to be applied to prevent leaching. We love Zinsser Smart Prime for stain blocking. See our FAQ page for more detail

Naturally, your item will need to be clean and free of all loose and flaking material, dirt and grease/oil. We recommend cleaning your surface with a sugar soap solution or a small amount of solvent/methylated spirits which will clean the surface of any dirt and grease. Surfaces should be sound and free of any mildew or rust. 

Stir well making sure there are no contents sitting on the bottom of the can. Apply 1, 2 or 3 coats of Chalk Furniture Paint (depending on your item and the look you want to achieve) with either a brush or roller. Touch dry within around 30 minutes. Re-coat in 1 to 2 hours depending on the weather. Finish by either waxing or applying Clear Top Coat. The paint will be fully cured after 7 days. 

Chalk Furniture Paint 500ml covers approximately 6m2, depending on your item. 

Clear Top Coat - Timber pieces will need to be clean and free of all loose and flaking material, dirt and grease/oil.  Painted surfaces must be completely dry before applying Top Coat.  We recommend keeping a brush seperate for use with your Top Coat. Apply Clear Top Coat with our Sponge Applicator, 5mm roller or synthetic bristle brush.

Stir thoroughly before use. Apply in thin coats. May be diluted a little to help with application up to 5% is acceptable. Do not overwork the product excessively.  Touch dry in 30 minutes, and re-coat in 3 hours. Normally 1 coat is sufficient, but items that get more use or high traffic areas may need 2 coats.

The paint will be fully cured after 7 days. 

Clear Top Coat 500ml covers approximately 6m2,
