Be careful when selecting color chip on the can are darker than the real tinted color. Example: -banner blue - appears to be a dark navy blue on the side of the can. In reality - color is a shade slightly darker than royal blue. I had the paint tinted twice - trying to acheive navy color without success. The purple was the same issue - can color appeared darker than the real color. I ended up trying the banner blue because the paint tinting staff convinced me that it would be fine since the color dries darker. Which is true but the color still wasn't navy. Read Less

Answer: 
Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint will adhere to laminate; however, we do not recommend using this product on a countertop. It is not designed to withstand the everyday wear and tear of a countertop surface; it also does not contain the antimicrobial properties of most countertop coatings.

Hi Tlyorkie,
No, caulkboard paint leaves a course unsealed surface which be a very poor surface for a counter top.

All the walls in my house are textured. We want to paint our kids rooms with chalkboard paint. Will it be easy to write on if we leave it textured? If not, what's an easy, affordable way to get rid of the texture?

Answer: 
You actually will achieve best results when the product is applied on a smooth surface. If the surface is textured, it will be difficult to write on the Rust-Oleum Tintable Chalkboard paint. It can also be hard to erase the chalk off the board. We recommend, if possible, to lightly sand the surface with a 180 or 220 grit sandpaper to try to smooth out the surface. You could also try priming if you're not Read More

You could also try priming if you're not able to sand. You can use Zinsser Bullseye 1-2-3 Waterbased Primer. As a last option, you could consider a skim coat over your existing surface to create a smooth one.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not Impressed I followed the directions that were on the label, but still got a very uneven finish. I stirred the paint before applying to ensure that it was consistent (to avoid blotches) and used a high quality foam roller. The paint came out bright blue when it Banner Blue was supposed to be more of a navy. I used up the entire can of paint and it was still uneven. I let a day in between coats thinking that I was lifting the paint. It took me more than a week to paint this part of my office. If I had known this, I would have just gotten black paint to make my life easier. November 23, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible, miserable product After 4 coats and 2 quarts of this paint on a brand new primed wall, we could never get a solid color. I couldn't edge with this paint at all; it ended up streaked and terrible looking, no matter how many coats. The finish was so rough and pitted that when we tried to prime it for use, the chalk dust filled the pits and holes in the paint. I now have to sand the entire surface, after peeling off the parts that wouldn't stick to the wall. Not to mention, the smell while we were painting and waiting for coat after coat to dry was a bit intense. I would NOT recommend this product, will not ever use it again, and probably won't buy Rustoleum in general, as I have NEVER had good luck with any of their products. October 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better then I expected I was expecting this to be great but a little difficult to apply since I was painting my car with it. I used a roller and it worked perfectly. Took me about 2 hours to paint the whole car with only 2 layers and I love it. Easy to apply, works great, and now everyone has a blast with my car. September 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by You can easily roll this I read a review stating that the package was incorrect and you couldn't roll this paint. Completely untrue! I have painted this stuff multiple times and it always rolls great. You have to use a super smooth foam roller and your coats should be thin as they always should be when rolling paint. Maybe if you just dipped the roller into the paint and didn't roll it out on tray like you are suppose to then I can see it becoming an issue but otherwise this is a simple application with foam roller. Creates a super smooth untextured finish. As a side note I would sand the wall smooth and clean first if that is what you are painting. Don't skip steps you won't have the finish product you are looking for. June 12, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful color I got this chalkboard paint in the Chocolate Brown, rather than black, for my son's room to use on one wall. I love the color! It matches his room, better than black, and same effect for chalking. You have to wait 4 hours to apply the second coat, but you will need to! First coat is thin and sketchy. Easy to apply though. You will most likely need 3 coats. So, for one wall, plan on getting 3 of these 29 0z. cans. It's worth it! So different, that it was much more pleasurable painting ..knowing u can write on it later! Easy to clean up! I only wish I could get by with one coat, like the paint n primer in one. Or, that they made this in a GALLON size! By the way, you don't need any primer before painting chalkboard paint:) It grabs any surface well:) February 3, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by table for my classroom Awesome product! Great to use for kids and easy to clean! August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chalk Board Paint Wanted to do something different. I saw the "color" chalkboard. It took me a total of an hour and a half to measure, tape off a 3'x4' section. Roll the paint on. Waited 30 minutes between coats. Took 3 Coats. It looks AWESOME. I can't wait to use it. I am looking for a special border to put around it know, but the paint worked well!!! January 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love This Stuff I got a gender neutral color (deep teal) to do various projects. It went on really easily and the color is beautiful. I recommend you put it on with a sponge roller instead of a brush. When it dries if there are bumps it makes it hard to write on with chalk. The directions say you need 2 or 3 coats, but I definitely needed 3 coats. I painted it onto metal and it worked wonderfully. I'm currently searching for more projects to use this with.
