Now you see that chalkboard paint in the stores and it's this tiny little can or about enough paint to barely fill a pint jar....we all know we can make our own and the store brand only comes in color...BLACK.

Well never fear the craft queen Martha Stewart has saved us $$$$$ and gives directions on how to make this cool craft paint our selves. Thank you Martha Stewart!

Ok this recipe and all pictures used in this blog post Are from the Martha Stewart site. I can't take any credit and nor shall I and at the end of the tutorial there will be a link to the site so you can see what other kid crafts she has. Enjoy!

Custom Colors How-To

Start with flat-finish latex paint in any shade. For small areas, such as a door panel, mix 1 cup at a time.

1. Pour 1 cup of paint into a container. Add 2 tablespoons of unsanded tile grout. Mix with a paint stirrer, carefully breaking up clumps.

2. Apply paint with a roller or a sponge paintbrush to a primed or painted surface. Work in small sections, going over the same spot several times to ensure full, even coverage. Let dry.

3. Smooth area with 150-grit sandpaper, and wipe off dust.

4. To condition: Rub the side of a piece of chalk over entire surface. Wipe away residue with a barely damp sponge.
