Chalk Buyer’s Guide

If you keep the before points in mind, you can easily go out to the market and buy chalk, right? No!

Sand

Once my furniture has dried, I go over the entire piece with a fine grit sanding sponge. This little sponge is my best friend when I am redoing furniture; I buy them in bulk! And this trick will completely transform your finished piece! It smooths the entire piece until it’s soft as butter and flattens any little grits so they’re not visible.

So exactly how much chalk paint do I need for a piece of furniture?

As a newbie to the world of chalky paint, you might be thinking, oz?? quart?? That’s not going to be enough to do anything! You will be amazed at how far you can get with that much paint! 

To give you an example, I painted my first buffet and hutch (see it here) with a oz sample size pot of paint (coats)…and I had leftover paint! Chalky paint goes a long way!

And just because you’ve been such good students, I’ll let you in on a little secret. Remember I told you how chalky paint has amazing adhesion? Yup well, you can pretty much paint anything with it, not just furniture! Check out these projects below that I transformed with chalky paint.

Paint Plastic Easter Eggs with Chalk Paint!

I hope this post has been informative! There are lots of articles written about how to paint with chalky paint, how to wax, how to distress. This is really just a primer for the beginner, to introduce you to the product.

If you have any specific questions, please feel free to contact me. I am by no means an expert, but I have painted many, many pieces of furniture….and other things (haha) so I do know a thing or two…or I will happily point you in the right direction. You can click on the links in the paragraph about each company to be taken directly to their site where you can read more about their particular brand.

This is a great time to read Chalk Paint 201, an inside look at over specific chalky paint brands, including lots of images and user reviews! Be an informed consumer before you go shopping for chalky paint!

New pitted handle design on the right

For those interested in kettlebell sport, Kettlebell Kings Competition kettlebells meet all major Kettlebell Sport Competition Standards.  Kettlebell Kings offers several sets of competition kettlebells at a discount, which will go a long way to getting you outfitted for kettlebell training at a lower overall cost.

The Paradigm Pro Elite kettlebells are designed from the ground up to be high precision fitness tools. These kettlebells are cast as a single piece of steel with no seams, burrs, or welds and no filler material. This is just an all around well made kettlebell that is very comfortable to use for long periods.

The feature I like the most about the Paradigm Pro Elite kettlebells is the finish. The steel is finished slightly rough and provides more grip than most competition kettlebells typically finished smooth. The rougher finish also holds a lot of chalk. The handle window is wide enough to fit two hands in, which is great for two-hand swings.

Renaissance Furniture Paint

The benefit to buying from Renaissance is that furniture is all they do. They’ve become an expert because they are able to focus on just this one area. They provide distressed old world styles as well as high-gloss contemporary looks as well.

All their paint is eco-friendly with no VOC’s and zero emissions. You won’t find any CA Prop 6warning on their cans because they contain no dangerous chemicals.

They are completely safe to use indoors and ideal for all furniture and cabinets. They are the leader in making the best chalk paint for furniture.

Rust-Oleum

You wouldn’t automatically think of this brand when looking for a chalk paint, but you might want to. Since 1921, Rust-Oleum has been a leader in coming up with innovative solutions. In fact, the brand started because sea captain Robert Fergusson didn’t want his ship to come apart.

By taking notice that a splash of fish oil helped to stop corrosion, he recognized his first solution. He created the very first rust-preventative paint that is still a best-selling product worldwide.

With ingenuity like that, why not trust the look of your furniture to the same brand?

Amitha Verma

Created by an interior designer, Amitha Verma furniture paints can quickly transform your old, drab pieces into something beautiful. Her paints require no sanding, stripping or priming for that completed work of art.

She created her brand with a passion to help others create high-end furniture pieces for their homes without spending a fortune.

Renaissance Chalk Furniture & Cabinet Paint

This Made in the USA paint is available in a wide variety of colors to suit anyone’s décor. It provides superior coverage over some of the other brands.

In fact, you should only need one or two coats to completely cover your piece of furniture. There is no sanding or priming required which allows you to get the work done quickly.

The silky smooth, chalky finish will leave you with a shabby chic and vintage look but can be easily used to provide for a contemporary style as well.

It has no harmful chemicals, zero VOC’s and zero emissions, making it completely safe for the environment and your family.

Use this formula on wood furniture, cabinets, wallboard, plaster, metal, glass or masonry with ease.

It dries to the touch in just 20 minutes and leaves behind virtually no odor. It is easy to see why this is the best chalk paint for cabinets as well as furniture.

Rust-Oleum Ultra Matte Interior Chalked Paint

It is no surprise to me that Rust-Oleum came up with a solution for chalk paint.

You can use their brand on a variety of surfaces such as your wood, ceramic, canvas and metal. It will create a distressed look with only a small investment of time.

The low-odor, latex formula allows for easy clean up with water and soap. It dries to the touch in just about 30 minutes and will cover up to 150-square feet per container.

This 1-coat coverage means you get back to life quicker than with other paints.

In addition, you’ll achieve excellent adhesion with minimal application and prep time.

Once completed, this formula provides an ultra-matte and velvety smooth finish. There are plenty of colors available to complement your next project.

Choose from a 12oz spray or 30oz container to fit any size project.

FAVORITE BRUSHES

For cutting in and smaller projects, I recommend the Cling On R1 This dainty round brush is the smallest round brush in our lineup and one I find myself using often.  

If you are creating a more distressed, shabby chic finish try our HQ 4mm  paint and wax brush, the large round natural bristle brush is essential for creating texture and dimension as well as applying wax.  This is my favorite size brush for waxing and it really helps speed up application of wax, and you will find you use less wax than application with a cloth.  The HQ brushes are incredible brushes for getting into detailed areas and painting spindles.

It was hard to just pick a few colors to feature but these colors of

Quarrying limestone

Approximately 9percent of the limestone produced in the United

States is quarried. After a sufficient reserve (twenty-five covers the deposit is removed with bulldozers and scrapers. If the chalk is close to the surface, an open shelf quarry method can be used; however, this is very rare. Usually an open pit quarry method is used instead. In this method, holes are drilled into the rock, explosives are placed inside, and the rock is blown apart. Depending on the nature of the deposit, a pit can be enlarged laterally or vertically.

Dehydrating gypsum

Gypsum, like limestone, is also quarried and pulverized. The major difference in processing gypsum is that it must be dehydrated to form calcium sulfate, the major component of colored chalk. This is done in a kettle, a large combustion chamber in which the gypsum is heated to between 24and 25degrees Fahrenheit (116-12degrees Celsius). It is allowed to boil until it has been reduced by twelve to fifteen percent, at which point its water content will have been reduced from 20.percent to between and percent. To further reduce the water, the the chalk

The particles of chalk or calcium sulfate are now conveyed to vibrating screens that sift out the finer material. The ensuing fine

The Future

Many people consider using chalk and chalk-boards to present material outdated. Some experts claim that teachers have stubbornly resisted new chalkboard entirely. A study which recently investigated whether teaching with overhead projectors was more effective than using chalkboards concluded that chalkboards were more interactive, progressive, and fruitful.

A development much in the educational news lately is the electronic chalkboard. In place of a regular chalkboard, a teacher uses a large TV screen, inputting materials from a computer terminal. In a more advanced scenario, each student uses a terminal, to which the teacher sends information from a master computer. Experts claim that such set-ups are more visually exciting to students, more versatile than the old-fashioned chalkboards, cleaner than dusty chalk, easier for the teacher to use, and better able to present more complex material through the use of graphics and animation. Many studies on the feasibility of electronic chalkboards have been made, however, and most seem to favor keeping the traditional chalkboard, at least for now. Electronic chalkboards that are sophisticated and easily readable lie beyond the budget constraints and technological capabilities of most schools. Further, studies of the spent more time preparing their lessons, teachers and students were less interactive, students were dissatisfied with the electronic chalkboards,

How I used them

I took both of Hanchor’s bags on several traditional climbing trips to the beautiful Mt. Arapiles in Victoria and ascended classic runs such as The Watchtower Crack (see below), Pilot Error, D Minor and Major, Muldoon, and Hot Flap.

The most recent trip was during the glorious days we had over the Easter and Anzac Day weekends in Australia. Each was carried, used, and abused for over 2000 meters of climbing. They were also put through their paces at a couple of bouldering walls around Melbourne.

A few members of the RMIT Outdoors Club were happy to test them out as well. The feedback was almost all positive with the exception of some annoyance over the Kangaroo’s inbuilt chalk sock only being on one side.

The pros column was long with this bag. It felt like the right size, not too big and not too small. The style was clean and humble. The draw-cord closure seals the bag well and appears to be built to last. Since we always look for ways products can be improved, I’d like to see a better system for refilling the chalk sock with chalk. The zippers to the chalk sock are on the outside of the bag, making it easy to create a mess when refilling it with chalk.

Kangaroo

The hook and hoop design made it quick and easy to switch between the two modes. Not something you’d want to do mid-climb, but when you’re looking at a tough pitch where some loose chalk would be nice to have you’ll be able to switch modes and continue climbing in under a minute.

The Kangaroo has the same solid construction of the Hula. It sports the same quality draw-cord closure and has a similarly classic style to it. The nice feature you lose when compared to the Hula is the 360-degree chalk sock. The chalk sock is built into one of the interior sides of the bag, which means your hand sometimes has to search around for it. That’s the last thing you want to think about before making that super pumpy move to get you out and over the roof; however, after some use you will get used to where it sits.

Information

Give your furniture a new lease of life with our range of furniture paint, perfect for upcycle projects. In Pale chalk pink, this paint is suitable for use on interior wood. With no need to prep or prime, simply paint your furniture and finish with a layer of varnish to protect. All Laura Ashley paints are manufactured in the UK. palechalkpinkpa

Eggshell

Eggshell paints are typically more durable than a flat paint. They also offer a slight sheen in the finish. This sheen can vary in degree between brands, so choose wisely. Eggshell paints are generally used on interior surfaces and applied to wood.

This latex-based paint is versatile and can be used for painting ceilings and walls. Choosing an exterior flat paint is good for use on a rough or smooth texture. If using a sprayer, flat paints tend to work well as long as they are diluted properly. Otherwise, latex paints can be applied with rollers or brushes.

Gloss and Satin​

These paints are durable and are used on interior woodwork and metal surfaces. There are latex-based and solvent-based varieties available.

A latex-based paint is easy to apply and typically doesn’t yellow with age. They do not provide the same high shine as solvent-based paints do. Some brands of gloss paint offer special formulas that will also work on exposed exterior surfaces.
