Chalk painted chair seats and now cracking! What did I do wrong?
I’ve never used chalk paint - this was my first ‘mini project’ and I wanted to try painting the seats on my dining table chairs instead of recovering them in a fabric.
I finished two days ago and today I already noticed tiny cracks all over one of the seats. Any ideas what I did wrong? I dipped my brush into water And then into paint before applying the paint. I also had bleed thru on stains the first two coats so I bought some Kilz pray primer and then had to do two more coats to cover that.
Im not sure if it was too many coats or if I did something wrong in the application (I.e not enough water, not enough paint, sanded too much, too little, etc.) I sanded between coats and applied a creme wax because that’s what I was told to use at the hardware store.
Thanks! (sorry if this was long!)
