How to Use Glass Chalkboard Paint

Clean the glass or ceramic surface thoroughly with alcohol or soap and water. Allow to air dry completely. For best results, use a sponge wedge to dab the paint onto the surface. For a dishwasher-safe finish, allow the paint to dry at least 4 days before baking. Place in a non-preheated oven, then bring to 325 degrees F for 30 minutes. Allow to cool completely in the oven with the door open before removing. Once completely cooled, condition the chalkboard surface by lightly rubbing the side of a piece of chalk across it.

Keep paint away from food surfaces and the areas that will come in contact with your mouth. Although the paint is non-toxic, you still don't want to ingest it.

Tips for Chalkboard Paint

Use a cosmetic sponge to daub on paint for an even finish.

Mask areas with painter's tape to create clean, geometric shapes.

Make your own stencils by cutting adhesive vinyl sheets with scissors or a die cut machine to create decorative chalkboard labels.

Clean up imperfections in small areas by using a wet brush, toothpick, or paper towel to gently wipe off the excess wet paint. To remove all wet paint from a surface, soak the item in warm water.

Use reusable adhesive-backed stencils for adding labels and design elements.
