How to Use Chalkboard Paint

Create a colorful, functional chalkboard in any room with chalkboard paint that's erasable, washable, and durable.

Part 1

1

Prepare the Surface

Once you've selected the space for your chalkboard, clean the surface completely and repair any protruding nails or other imperfections. Some surfaces may require a primer or additional preparation:

If an all-purpose primer is needed, we recommend using Fresh Start® High-Hiding All Purpose Primer (046).

When applying chalkboard paint over plastic, we recommend priming with Insl-x® STIX® Bonding Primer (SXA 110) for best results.

Metal surfaces should be cleaned with Super Spec HP® Oil & Grease Emulsifier (P83) before applying chalkboard paint.

Shiny metal surfaces should be lightly sanded before the chalkboard paint is applied.

2

Tape Off the Area to Be Painted

Use painter's tape to mark off a space for your chalkboard.

3

Apply the Chalkboard Paint

Using a brush or roller, apply the chalkboard paint within the taped-off area. For best results, use a Benjamin Moore custom-blended nylon/polyester brush or short-nap roller.

4

Ensure Lasting Durability

For best results, allow the painted area to cure for 3 days before using it as a chalkboard. Then, prior to initial use, rub the entire surface with a piece of white chalk.

Helpful Hints:

For erasing, we recommend using a clean, damp cloth or paper towel. We do not recommend using a chalkboard eraser.

Because of the additives used in some varieties of chalk, which can leave a residue when erased, we recommend using light-colored chalk designed for use on chalkboards.
