Magnolia Design Co. chalk paste is a water based paste formula with the consistency of frosting from a can. Chalk paste is applied wet and will dry to a hard, smudge free surface however because it is water based, it will wash off most surfaces. If you want your design permanent, just simply apply a clear coat over the top of your design once the chalk paste is dry. Chalk paste comes in 3 oz jars in a wide array of colors! *Chalk Paste is not recommended for fabrics.
