Chalk-Tique Powder Additive for Paint
Not to be confused with pre-mixed chalk-style paints on the market, Howard Products’ Chalk-Tique Powder Additive enables anyone to make chalk-style paint from any leftover paints or with any desirable paint color from their local home-improvement store. Once mixed with water and then added to paint, Chalk-Tique Powder Additive turns ordinary, leftover paint into a chalk-style paint that’s easy-to-use, durable, and can adhere to almost any surface. Why buy expensive chalk-style paint when you can make your own?
Howard Products has also created a Light and Dark Chalk-Tique Paste Wax. This uniquely blended paste wax is the perfect follow-up to any project that has been chalk painted. The Dark Paste Wax will slightly darken the paint and help create a “distressed” looking, aged patina. The Light Paste Wax helps seal, finish and protect the newly painted surface without darkening the paint. Chalk-Tique Paste Wax adds a natural-looking satin wax finish that helps protect and beautify your new chalk-style painted surface. A piece of furniture that has been painted with chalk-style paint and then waxed creates a very appealing patina that only a paint and paste wax combination can achieve. Visit www.howardproducts.com.
