About Talens Art Creation Vintage Chalk paint & Crackle Medium

Vintage Chalk is a trendy chalk paint with a very matt finish, highly suitable for wooden grounds and intended for interior use. Wash or sand surface and make sure it is grease free. Paint it, sand it (after 24 hours of drying) and achieve a beautiful vintage look. Apply one or two layers, depending on the desired coverage. Use a soft brush or a smooth roller to apply the paint and clean it with warm water. Stir before use. Colours can be mixed. Add Crackle Medium over top for a craquelé effect (cracks) in the paint layer!
