Make your own chalk paint! This is how I make mine. 1 part plaster of paris ($7 for a container that lasts!) 1 part water 3 parts latex paint ($3 for a sample size 7.5 to 8 oz) That's it! And the paint samples at Lowe's or Home Depot are perfect for making a single batch of a fun color. Soooo much cheaper than Anne Sloan.

In this video I show you an easy way to make your own gesso and I show you the journal I will be making (or altering) to use as a project journal to keep track of all the ideas I see and want to try, all the classes I want to take, and all the products that I'm sure I will need to buy some day.
