A number of recommendations and tips you should know when painting on wood with chalk paint:

  • If it`s a new timber that has never been treated with wax, oil or varnish, begins with a sanding to match the surface. Moreover, after applying the first coat of paint, sanding the surface with very fine sandpaper to remove hair from wood.
  • When wood is rich in tannins (fir, cedar, mahogany ..) should be applied primer spray before painting with chalk paint. In this way, you will avoid stains on the paint due to its porosity. In the following link, you will find more information on how to paint a wood rich in tannins.
  • If the wood has a high gloss varnish, sand the surface before applying paint chalk to improve adherence.
  • Be especially careful when painting antique furniture, as it can produce what is called “bleeding”. Bleeding is a pinkish spot that appears after applying paint and due to the reaction with dyes and varnishes that were used for decades. To fix must first apply a primer sealant.
