Excellent chalk paint
I used this paint on several small items and found it to be a very smooth paint. I would recommend this product also for many applications like distressing & stenciling on your projects. MJ

Parisian Grey matte acrylic chalk finish paint
Found a small chalk paint project to try out the paint on. Used an old mirror and gave it new life with some FolkArt ultra matte acrylic chalk finish paint. As it is in the picture it looks good with a matte finish. I happen to like a little sheen on the finish so I will put a wax finish on the mirror to achieve the look I like. If your going for strictly matte finish then you will get just that with this paint. The paint spreads pretty evenly and coverage is great. It adheres pretty good too. It's easy to distress the look of your project as well. It's waterbased, non toxic. It's nice that no sanding or priming is necessary to use this paint.

Beautiful Teal Paint to Vamp Up Your Current Belongings!
This paint is so pretty and so vibrant! I used it to bring my old metal baskets back to life! I found the manufacturer of the paints uploaded YouTube videos to help understand how the paints and waxes work. I love the fact that, even on metal, I had to do zero prep work. I did notice the paint takes longer to dry on metal than wood, though. I applied the Grotto on the baskets and then used the Antique Wax to finish it. They look awesome!

So much fun to bring vitality back to your current belongings!
Why toss it if you can upgrade it?! I love to recycle things by revamping them and bringing them back to life. This line of paint has helped me do just that! I used this Rich Black color to bring new life to my old side tables in my living room. The tables were wood on top (with a varnish finish) and had metal legs. With absolutely NO prep I painted over them first with the Parisian Gray, then the Rich Black and finished with the clear wax. After a nice buff to add sheen to the wax they look fantastic. Check out YouTube to find videos the manufacturer put out. They helped me!

Nice, light shade of grey. Great paint!
I have had so much fun with these paints! I used this one as the first coat on my side tables for my living room. After wards I put on the Rich Black color and then followed those up with the clear wax. They look great and really turn up the decor factor in my front room! I have pretty much bought every color they offer now! I have done several other projects and have been very pleased.

These paints are so much fun and so easy to use!
This color is so beautiful! Its a rich pink-coral color. As with all of these chalk paints it dries a very, very matte texture and ends up being a slight bit darker than in the bottle. These paints do not have to be applied to a prepped surface. I have been able to use them over wood, over metal, and over wood with a varnish without having to sand or prep, with absolutely NO problems! I would just warn you to let them dry really well before applying any new coats. The brand recommends using their brushes, but they're expensive. I found a chip brush works fine, just make sure to snag any bristles that fall off as they always do with chip brushes! Also, look up videos on YouTube as there is a whole series from the manufacturer on the ways to use this paint.

Thumbs Up
Using this paint for ceiling medallions (also from homedepot.com) and an old picture frame for wall décor. Paint is very smooth to work with. Applies evenly. One coat for flat/matte medallion surface, two for glossier picture frame surface. Dries fast. Clean up is a breeze. Included pic of only this color as the base because I'll be using other colors to accentuate dimensions on the medallion and distress the frame. Its a very antique looking neutral gray, not green-ish, blue-ish or purple-ish. I like that about the color because I never realized how hard it was to match greys until I bought a grey couch. Paint scuffs nicely with a sanding pad for distressing but not from basic handling. Thumbs up.

Decorative finish
I applied this paint over a bare wood entry table without any sanding or prepping. It was easy to apply. I used a brush so there were some brush marks that showed when it was dry. I only applied one coat because the color was very vibrant. I still had almost 1/4 of the bottle left after painting 4 pieces. It dried within 2 hours. It is a matte finish so there is not any shine. I used the clear wax when it was dry. The wax has to be reapplied every so many months and does not seal. I read that this is a problem on high traffic pieces so I decided to stain the top piece of wood instead of painting it with the chalk paint.

Applied easily and looks great
I bought two unpainted nightstands and used this chaulk paint and the same companies wax. I love the ease of chalk paint and this paint went on great. The paint was dry to the touch within three hours. After two coats it covered most knots in the wood and the wax added a nice finish. No sanding required!
