In this manner, what kind of brush should I use with chalk paint?
It's best to use a natural bristle brush (often labeled as “pure bristle”) to apply Annie Sloan Chalk Paint instead of your more typical synthetic brush usually used for painting walls.
One may also ask, how do you get a smooth finish with chalk paint? How-To Tuesday: Create a Smooth Finish with Chalk Paint – No Brush Strokes!
- Wipe piece clean.
- Wood filler.
- Mix your paint.
- Apply the paint.
- Apply the second coat and finish by stroking in the opposite direction from the first coat.
Likewise, is it better to brush or roll chalk paint?
There's a few different ways to get a smooth finish when using chalk paint. My favorite technique right now is using a foam roller. Or you can use a hand brush and if you apply the paint correctly it will come out nice and smooth.
What happens if you dont wax chalk paint?
There is a potential downside to a poly finish that isn't an issue with wax. Poly topcoats can sometimes pull tannins from the wood through the porous chalk paint, creating yellowish (or sometimes pink) spots. Wax doesn't react with the wood the same way a poly does, which is why this doesn't happen with wax.
