How does one make chalk paint?

Chalk paint seems to be all the rage in furniture painting or craft projects. It is very expensive to buy. There must be a way to make it

    Here is another recipe that works as well...Mix 1/3 cup Plaster of Paris with 1/3 cup cool water. Mix until smooth. Add one cup latex paint and stir to blend. This works like chalk paint. Caution, you cannot store this mix for long periods of time because it will dry out and harden.
