TO MAKE 8 OZ.:
In a seperate container (plastic jar, mason jar, Cool Whip container…) mix 2 tablespoons* BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder with 1 tablespoon water until a consistency similar to donut glaze is achieved. A small wisk or spoon works great. If the mixture is too pasty, you went a little heavy on the chalk paint powder, but don't worry! Just add a few drops of water.
Pour 8 oz. (1 C)** FLAT FINISH paint into container and stir until chalk paint powder mixture is fully incorprated.
You are ready to paint!
HOW MUCH IS A TABLESPOON?
Since chalk paint powder is so fine, it is easy to pack more into a tablespoon than you need. Slightly heaping or gently packed (about 1.1 oz.) is plenty. The more chalk paint powder that is used, the thicker the chalk paint/water mixture will be, and the more your paint will thicken over time, but that's okay! Simply add water if mixed paint becomes too thick.
In other words, you can't go wrong!
TO MAKE 1 QT.:
It is recommended to mix up just 8 oz. at a time for three reasons:
- Due to excellent coverage, many projects can be completed with just 8 oz. chalk paint
- It is easier to fully incorporate the chalk paint powder mixture in smaller batches
- Although mixed chalk paint stores indefinitely, why mix up more than you need?
Still want to mix more?
In a seperate quart-sized (or bigger) container, mix the contents of 1 jar BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder with 4 to 5 tablespoons water until a thick but creamy consistency is achieved. Too pasty? Add water! Add FLAT FINISH paint and stir until chalk paint powder mixture is fully incorporated. Store any unused paint in an airtight container. If stored paint thickens, add water!
