You can really fill out the crevices in any object you are painting when you allow the chalk paint to thicken and then mix in some clear soft wax. Once a surface you are painting is fully covered with the mixture, you can easily wipe it away until you get the look you want or repeat the procedure if necessary.
In order to achieve a smooth finish, start off by sanding out any unwanted textures from the surface to be painted. Then, once the paint is thinned out with the right amount of water, the paint should be applied in the direction of the grain. Once dry, you can then work clear soft wax into the surface.
These are just a few of the techniques you can use to color up your living environment around your home. Chalk paint is becoming more popular and easier to find. We found a Houston chalk paint vendor who created her own paint. Once you have your color choices, play around with it to see what you can do.
