Layering Technique for Chalk Paint Colors on Wood STEP 1


In this video, I’ll show you the basics of my technique for layering chalk paint colors on wood. I get asked this question ALL THE TIME so please let me know if I did a good job showing how to do to layer chalk paint. This is a very basic technique for layering chalk paint and other pieces may require a more advanced application. I’ll try to show that in the next video.

I agree with the others. I was expecting a second or third layer after the first. Is there another video after this one?


Leslie always posts her videos a few days early on her Youtube page so if you subscribe you’ll get a notification.and be able to see them before she posts them here. Step 2 is up and it’s a great video.


Thanks! I hope the next video(s) show how to add additional colors to achieve the layering effect.
