Simply ensure your piece is clean and free from peeling paint, dirt, dust, mould and grease. Then you are ready to get started! The beauty about Chalk & Clay paint is that there is no need to sand prior to application. Like most brands of chalk paint, the Made by Paint brand will adhere to many different surfaces. Occasionally, certain furniture surfaces may bleed stain through the paint. Test your piece first, and if so, undercoat the surface with a good quality primer before painting.
Ensure that you stir your tin well before you begin painting, as sediments may have settled over time. For best results, it is recommended that you use a good quality brush! For a textured look, use a bristle brush. For a smoother finish, use either a synthetic brush or a 4-5mm mohair roller. These products are also available on our website, under the “Brushes” tab.
The chalk & clay paint is touch dry in 30 minutes and can be recoated in 2 hours. For a smoother finish, sand between coats where needed to remove any unwanted material. Apply further coats until the desired finish is achieved.
Chalk & Clay paint is a porous product that will need to be sealed for protection. There are many topcoat options to seal the paint that are non-toxic. These include any of our waxes or our Polyseal. Please visit our “Finishes Range” section on our website to view these products.
Once finished, be sure to clean up your quality brushes to keep them at their best for your next project! Clean up is as simple as washing them with warm soapy water. This includes your wax brushes too!
Your piece will be fully cured within 7 days of completion!
