What Should You Do Before Creating magnetic paint Wall In Your Home

- Mar 24, 2019-

First, check the texture of your wall.

If your wall has some texture to it, it's going to be a bit more difficult to use magnetic paint on. Ever see a bumpy chalkboard? There's a reason for that. Make sure the texture of the space you want to cover is totally even, and if it's not, grab some sandpaper to smooth out the surface. Make sure the surce of your wall is clean

When it's time to apply, you'll need at least two coats.

The more coats, the smoother this will appear, so have enough paint for a minimum of two coats. Some people have said they needed to use four, but, again, it depends on how much magnetic pull force do you want, the surface you're covering and the brand you're working with.  Tapically Newlife magnetic paint only need one coat.

You need to give it 24 hours to dry.

Newlife magnetic paint should dry for up to 24 hours before you use it. Then, when it's finally dry, you'll want to rub chalk over the entire space and then erase it thoroughly with a dry towel. Once you do this, the surface will be ready to go.

magnetic paint can be dark color and grey color.

Your magnetic paint wall does not have to be black. Take it from A Beautiful Mess, who likes to make colorful chalkboards for party signs. You can DIY it by using acrylic paint and grout.

You can even turn it into a magnetic chalkboard.

Endless possibilities! Magnetic Primer is a magical thing that turns just about any surface into a magnetic one, so if you add this to your chalkboard paint you can hang photographs, magnets, and just about whatever else you'd like. Be warned: You'll need at least three coats of this to make the magnetic attraction strong. 

And after all of this, if you're afraid to commit, you can buy a magnetic wallpaper decal to test it out.
