Yes Squeaker! You can use your typical latex (water base) wall paint you purchase from your home improvement store.

Have Fun!!

Would you be so nice and actually WRITE this Instructable?
Some of us are unable to download the videos.  A  brief description would do it.

This is awesome.  I think the video could have been a little slower, I had to watch a second time to catch all the directions.  But I have so many ideas now for my own chalkboard paint.  Thank you!
