  1. You can make your own!
    Martha Stewart’s Formula-

    1 Cup (8 ounces) paint (any color)
    2 Tablespoons un-sanded tile grout

    Mix thoroughly (it will be lumpy at first).
    Paint two coats.
    Let dry.
    Smooth with 150 grit sandpaper.
    Have fun!

    P.S. Sorry I don’t have metric conversions. Also make sure you buy quality chalk in the US I use Prang and found that Crayola was terrible.

  2. P.P.S.
    This is wonderful stuff and very tough. It survived with no problem in my classroom with kids drawing and working all day! My chalkboards still look great 3 years later!
