KILZ® CHALK STYLE PAINT

Interior | Decorative | Easy Application

Easily add history and character to any surface with KILZ® CHALK STYLE PAINT. It goes on thick, for excellent hide, and requires very little surface preparation. Depending on the vision you have for the project, simply apply 1 or 2 coats on a clean, dust-free, or lightly sanded surface. To enhance durability, seal the surface afterward with KILZ® CLEAR SEALING WAX. An “antique” look can be achieved by applying two contrasting colors, distressed with sandpaper, and sealed with KILZ® DARK SEALING WAX.

KILZ® CHALK STYLE PAINT is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kilz Chalk Paint I bought Kilz Chalk paint to refurbish 3 chairs. I sanded the chairs as much as I could with a hand sander. I washed the chairs with TSP and rinsed with plain water. I applied a primers and then painted with 2 coats of the chalk paint. I was ecstatic; the chairs looked beautiful. But when I applied a water-based polyurethane sealer; color from the remaining old finish leaked through. I was no longer ecstatic! I researched this problem and I quickly learned that this is a common problem with chalk paint. I re-sanded the chairs and reapplied a primer. After a quick trip to the paint store; I reapplied a latex paint to my chairs. Don't waste your money buying chalk paint!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money! Bought it excited to see how it was going to look. Open it up to see it all clumped in the bottom of the can. All water on top, I tried mix it and shaking it but there is no saving it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Non complete finish I tried this product on two dressers. It took three coats to completely coat. When finished, l could not touch painted surface, even with gloves, without leaving marks on the surface. I also tried to seal the surface with Kilz sealing wax. I could not do the long flat surfaces without varying degrees of shine and consistent finish. I have painted many projects in my life and this was the most difficult Paint I have ever used. I love Kilz primer, but I will never use Kilz chalk style paint again. Very disappointed!
