Da Vinci’s “Chalk” Powder additive for paint and more!

The easy additive to create an economical alternative to ready mixed chalky Finish. It is really great to turn chalky finish paint into a texture coat.

Only Green’s Da Vinci “Chalk” Paint Powder additive turns most water based paints - including “Vintique” into chalky finish. Da Vinci’s Chalk Powder for paint is a 100% NZ natural Calcium Carbonate additive. It is easy to mix, easy to apply and easy to sand. It can be painted onto most surfaces with no undercoat required. (please note Chalk

Chalky paint will produce a range of shabby chic looks to vintage looks .see enclosed brochure for ideas.Its easy to apply using a brush and dries quickly. The finish can be
sanded smooth or distressed with sandpaper. It is essential to add a protective coating to chalk paint furniture before use. We recommend Da Vinci wax or Glaze Clearcoat.
