The paint is very thick and we used a foam brush to apply a thin layer, waited an hour, applied another layer, waited an hour, and applied a third layer. Let it cure for 24 hours as recommended. After that we conditioned it with chalk (rub chalk all over it, wipe it off). Both boxes look good and black with a slight sheen. The chalk wipes off easily with a soft rag.
I did mine on the bare wood, sanded just a bit, she did hers on a card stock glued to the box. Her's turned out a lot smoother and nicer looking than mine did. The grain of the wood was a little crude for a chalkboard surface. However it doesn't seem to affect performance. I can still erase my chalk marks.
We are planning to do more things with it, including the idea on the bottle of painting planters with it as a cute way to identify plants.
Lots of fun!
Anyway, this small jar actually went further than we thought it would. We did a coffee table project 50" by 16" and we still have almost half the jar left. We followed the instructions to the T, using one light coat at first, then a heavy second coat.
The end result looks like a chalkboard. You can easily write on it just like a chalkboard. The main thing with this chalkboard piant, or any paint is: The key to a great looking finished product is the type of surface you start with, and how smooth it is. Any imperfections will me magnified once painted with black paint. (See pictures).
If you're working with a wood surface, sand it as smooth as you possibly can, if you want a clean looking smooth chalkboard finish. Also an unpainted or unsealed wood surface will absorb more of the chalkboard paint, and will require more paint to completely cover. Maybe try sanding perfectly smooth, then painting with a cheaper paint, before applying the chalkboard paint.
Whatever you decide, this paint will definitely transform your surface in to a chalkboard like surface, but probably no more than any black acryllic paint. The key is to condition the surface with chalk, once the paint has cured.
I have also been impressed with how nicely chalk comes off!
Since my board is a little less than 4 square feet per side, this jar was more than sufficient to cover the one side intended for use with chalk. I can still use the other side of the board as a support for my drawing paper. Experimentation this morning - which is actually before the 24 hours curing time for the paint is done - has shown that I will be able to draw/write and erase as necessary. Small amounts of the paint did wipe off as I wiped off the border lines that I had drawn; maybe that will change after the paint has fully cured. And it will have plenty of time to cure, as I plan to paint some decorative borders around the edges of the board with other acrylic paint, and those two colors will also need time to cure before I use the board much.
So... the quality of the paint is acceptable on a porous surface such as masonite or other wood products. The texture is nothing like a good slate chalkboard - so don't expect that level of quality. For the cost and labor involved, this paint is a very nice substitute if you want a chalk board and cannot afford a decent-sized slate board... however, I would not expect the paint to last a lifetime as I would expect of a good slate.
Update: 20 hours after the third coat, I decided that yet another coat of paint on my new chalkboard was a good idea. After 4 coats of paint, I am much more pleased with the writing surface. 24 hours after the 4th coat, I conditioned my new chalk board with a layer of chalk over the entire surface as instructed on the label. After wiping off the chalk, it very much resembles the appearance of a slate chalkboard, if not the texture. This will be quite suitable for my purposes.
