1. Choose a flat, smooth surface to turn into a chalkboard. Flat objects, such as wooden plaques, work the best. You can also paint curved surfaces, such as terra cotta flower pots. If you want to make a magnetic chalkboard, try a sheet of galvanized steel, but make sure that it is magnetic first. Avoid surfaces with lots of carved details, as they will be difficult to write on later. This paint will give you a smooth, matte surface that you can write on, just like a real chalkboard. It is not the same as regular chalk paint, which will only give you a chalky texture.
2. Pour out as much latex paint as you need to cover your surface. Homemade chalkboard paint dries quickly, so you can't store it like other types of paint. Pour enough paint for 1 coat into a can or bucket; you will prepare a second batch later. You can use any color of paint you want, but black or dark green will give you the most chalkboard-like finish. Use 1/2 to 1 cup (120 to 240 mL) of latex paint for small projects. Use 1 gallon (3.8 L) (3.8 L) of grout for larger projects.
3. Stir in unsanded grout using a 1 to 8 ratio of grout to paint. For example, if you used, 1/2 cup (120 mL) of latex paint, add 1 tablespoon of unsanded grout. Stir the mixture with a paint stick so that no streaks or clumps of grout remain. You can find unsanded grout in hardware and home improvement stores. Do not use sanded grout. Work in a well-ventilated area and be careful not to breathe in the grout.
4. Pour the paint into a tray if you'll be using a paint roller. You can apply chalkboard paint busing a foam paintbrush for small surfaces, or you can apply it using a paint roller for large surfaces. If you are using a foam brush, leave the paint in its can or bucket. If you are using a roller, pour the paint into a paint tray. Small surfaces include plaques, mason jars, and tags. Large surfaces include walls, bulletin boards, and headboards.
