BB Frösch Frösch Frösch Chalk Paint Powder has been gaining in popularity and I thought I would post how to mix this BB Frösch magic in a jar!
If you want to skip the paint powder and just get chalk paint instead, I wrote a post about that here.
Really quick… BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder turns FLAT latex paint into CHALK PAINT!!
YEA… SUPER COOL! Read my review of BB Frosch here.
It’s 100% natural so you can skip all the harmful chemicals that come with popular DIY methods. Yep, those chemicals are nasty buggers, you don’t want any of that caustic stuff around your family for sure!
What’s cool about Chalk Paint you ask…
Well, you can skip all of that yucky prep work like, sanding, stripping & priming… That’s all the stuff I HATE about painting.
The issue for most folks is that traditional forms of Boutique Chalk Paint are really expensive. You’re going to pay anywhere from $38-$42 dollars for a QUART of paint. With BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder, you can mix up your own quart of Chalk Paint for roughly $21!
You can’t beat those savings.
Another fantastic benefit with BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder is that YOU get to pick your color!
It’s super easy to mix with your favorite high-quality FLAT finish Latex paint. Let me show you…
How to mix BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder
We typically recommend that you mix only 8 ounces (1 cup) at a time. This is primarily to avoid waste. With Chalk Paint, your paint goes a lot further so you will be surprised at how little you really need for your project. I typically do most of my medium to small-size projects with just a sample pot from Home Depot!
One jar of Chalk Paint Powder will mix up one quart of paint OR 4 sample pots of paint.
Here is what you need to do for 8 ounces (1 cup) of Chalk Paint…
You first need to constitute the powder before you add it to the paint.
Add 2 heaping tablespoons of powder to a separate container. You don’t ever want to mix this dry directly into your paint. You will end up with a clumpy mess!
Next, you need to add 1 tablespoon of water into the powder.
Now all you have to do is stir your water into the powder. You are looking for a “donut glaze” consistency. Think Krispy Kreme… You know what I’m talking about!
If your mix is too pasty, just add a few more drops of water until you get that “donut glaze” consistency that is perfect.
At this point, all you have to do is pour your paint right into your container. You will see the white Chalk Paint Power which is great… Place the lid on your container and shake for 20-30 seconds or until you can’t see any more of that white paste.
Now you’re all mixed up and ready to PAINT!!
It’s really that EASY!!
