The Difference Between Chalk Paint and Chalk Paste
Chalk paint is a furniture paint designed to adhere to surfaces without sanding first. Chalk paint creates a chalky matte appearance and is used for creating an aged or distressed appearance. Chalk paint is a similar consistency to regular house paint and does not work well with stencils because it is too runny and can bleed under the edges of the stencil.
Chalk paste is thicker than chalk paint, which makes it great for stenciling. The thick consistency leaves crisp edges to your stenciled design without needing to worry about bleed. Chalk paste goes on wet, dries hard and easily washes off of nonporous surfaces (like class, chalkboards, ceramic, etc) with water. Chalk paste is the perfect choice to use with your Ikonart Stencils.
