The aesthetic of eicó chalk paint is to show brush marks deliberately hence the finish is powdery but does not ‘chalk off’ hence, most applicators use chalk matt for furniture and walls. Often chalk matt is applied to furniture in one or two coats for distressing, and then a wax coating is applied to finish and protect the article.
