DIY - How To Use Chalkboard Paint on Glass

For a while now, I’ve been getting a bunch of requests for a tutorial on how to use chalkboard paint on glass. These projects are all over Pinterest and my fans want to know HOW DO THEY DO THAT???


What you’ll need:

Martha Stewart Chalkboard Paint (for Glass)

Plaid Folk Art Enamel Black Paint (for Glass)


Gold's Barbecue Sauce

There is nothing more delicious then a summer time drink and my favorite is lemonade!

These Gold’s glass bottles make the perfect recycled drinking glass ESPECIALLY for parties. Think about doing this project with a variety of re-purposed glass bottles. Everyone at the party could use the chalk to write down their names so no more mix-ups!!

Step 1: Using the black enameled paint, brush on a solid layer of black in a square shape. Let it dry for an hour.

Step 2: Brush a layer of Chalkboard paint OVER the black square. Let it dry for 4 hours.

Step 3: Bake at 350 degrees in an oven for 30 minutes. You can bake it directly on the oven rack. Let it cool inside of the oven.

Step 4: Now your glass is ready to use.  Add your favorite drinks and write phrases or names onto the chalkboard square.  When you’re finished using your glass, wash it with warm water and a soft sponge.
