After trying every recipe out there, I finally settled on this one. The finish is closer to any expensive store bought chalk paint I've tried (A Sloan included).
To each cup of any (flat or satin or eggshell---it doesn't matter) Latex Paint I add:
4 tablespoons of Calcium Carbonate (I order food-grade from Duda Energy or Amazon)
2 teaspoons of Baby Powder/talc
Add enough water until you get the consistency of thickened cream---maybe up to a tablespoon---depends on the thickness of the paint since some paint brands are thicker than others. Stir with an old wire whisk.
If stored in an airtight container, the paint will last for months. Good luck!
