Create a chalkboard-writing surface on any piece of wood, metal, plaster, glass, canvas, paperboard, bisque, almost any paintable surface. Color Splash!® Chalkboard Paint is great for decorating wood crafts and gifts. Simply brush on and let dry. Before using the chalkboard surface for the first time, “condition” it with chalk by rubbing the entire surface with the side of a piece of white chalk and then erasing it. This will prepare the surface to accept chalk and erase better. Water-based and non-toxic. 32-oz. Black.
