When I first started using chalk style paint, I would paint the piece of furniture or picture frame then go looking for other items that weren’t  timber.

Here are many different types of containers, pottery both mat and highly glazed, wooden etc., I even painted cork stoppers. The chalk style paint settled well onto all.
This was a little brown one cup tea pot, when brown was all the go. It was in the back of a cupboard, not being used and now sits proudly on a shelf in full view,

So you see, it’s easy to test what will take the chalk paint and what the chalk paint will like.

I’ve painted on timber, plastic, terracotta, all types of pottery, metal, you name it, I’ve probably painted it.

While I am painting, I don’t get many visitors, phone calls but not visits, I think my friends and relatives feel I may paint them if they stand still.

Thank You!
