We saw a really expensive mural that we loved on the internet, but didn't want to spend that much money. I recently learned about chalkboard paint on this website no less and BAM!!! it hit me why can't I paint with chalk? We developed an inexpensive mural that we love, and hopefully, the baby will too!
Step 1: Step 1: Materials
Krylon Matte Finishing Spray (I would recommend the Low Odor version instead though. This had a very strong odor, and I had to have my husband spray it outside.)
Step 2: Step 2: Painting the Canvas
After everything is all dry you should prime each canvas for chalk by taking a white piece of chalk and using the side to lightly rub down the entire surface. Then erase it with a damp rag. This will help your chalk better stick to your canvas later.
