Prior to application, make sure the surface of you the item you wish to paint is dry and clean. This unique chalk paint can either be used neat, or diluted with water to develop an enhanced worn effect. Increase the depth of your colour by applying at least two coats, ensuring that you leave at least 2 hours between re-coats. Painted furniture should be touch-dry within 30 minutes.
