Review: Krylon Chalkboard Paint

Published 23:23 pm

Krylon chalkboard indoor paint will create a chalkboard out of a variety of surfaces. The paint is just as easy as any other paint to apply and will sufficiently cover the surface with two coats. The paint can be used on wood, metal, drywall, plastic, glass, and paperboard. It makes a fun activity for the kids that will keep them entertained for hours.

I used a 29 oz. can of Krylon chalkboard paint to make a four and a half by five foot chalkboard on the cement wall of our basement. I still have half of the paint left for some other projects I have in mind. I know dry erase boards are handy and less dusty, but my children have been fascinated by their chalkboard. In my experience, dry erase boards are quickly ruined by little children, and I thought the chalkboard would last much longer.

The application process

First, the surface needs to be prepared for the paint. The surface will need to be clean and ideally pretty smooth. However, I did use the paint on a rough cement wall, and I was able to fill in the surface with just a little extra work with the paint brush. Some surfaces will also need to be primed, and the back of the can describes these surfaces.

The paint can then be applied with a regular paint brush. One coat will look okay, but two coats should be applied to make sure the surface is completely covered. The first coat will need to be completely dry before the second coat is applied. The paint is so dark, that it will not require a lot of skill to cover the area. Even a beginning painter could complete this project.

Clean-up

One of the most surprising things to me about the clean-up of the chalkboard paint was how easily it washed out of the brush. I assumed that since I was using a black paint, the brush would have to be thrown away after I was done. However, the brush came clean with surprisingly little effort.

One must be careful to lay down plastic or cloth on the floor and not drip the paint. The clean-up of the floor and wall do not seem to be as easy as the clean-up of the brush.

Other uses

Krylon chalkboard paint can be used for many different projects. It does not have to be used just for making new chalkboards. It can be painted on the top of desks or toy boxes. It could also be used to redo old chalkboards.

This easy to use chalkboard paint is not an expensive investment. Buy a can, get creative and entertain the children in your lives.
