    i add calcium carbonate to my paint. I mix about a 1/4 cup in a big mason jar and stir in warm water until it’s the consistency of sour cream and then fill up my jar with paint and mix really well.

    From the posting today, Misty Gaines-Johnson, tutorial team member from Whittman, Arizona, stated her recipe is 1 cup of flat latex paint, 1/3 cup of plaster o’ paris, and 1/8 cup of water. Mix everything in a non-food blender.

    There was a post I read where a DIY'er had tested all the various chalk paint recipes and compared it to Annie Sloan Chalk paint (which was all there was at one time for chalk paint) and found the calcium carbonate powder to be the best.
    In My Own Style is her blog - Love her ideas!
    The recipe I use is (which is hers)
    2 Tablespoons powder
    1 Tablespoon water
    1 cup of latex paint.
