If you love the vintage, soft, matte look and feel of chalk paint, but don’t love the price, then consider making your own homemade DIY chalk paint.


Instructions: Make your own chalk paint

  1. Fill up to two-thirds (2/3) of an empty quart can with latex paint.
  2. In a separate bowl mix 12 tbsp (3/4 cup) of Calcium Carbonate powder and 1/2 tbsp of Talcum powder.
    • The more Calcium Carbonate you add the more chalky the paint will become.
    • You can add or subtract Calcium Carbonate depending on your personal preference.
  3. Slowly add hot water and mix until you have a consistency similar to ranch dressing.
  4. Add the Calcium Carbonate and Talcum mix to the quart can.
  5. Top off the quart can with just a little more paint.
  6. Stir and you’re now ready to paint with your homemade DIY chalk paint.
