Rustins Blackboard Black provides a matt-black, non-reflective surface for blackboards and photographic work.
Create a chalkboard on almost any surface. Suitable for interior and exterior use. Quick-drying, low odour.
During preparation, the surface must be clean, smooth, sound, dry and free from wax, dust and contaminants.

I just bought a small tin of this blackboard paint as part of a little crafting job to make a diy chalk board for the kids to draw on during lockdown. It did a great job!
I had read online about paint like this, to make blackboard surfaces at home. I decided to go for the Rustins blackboard paint and found it on this website. I just used it on a board that I hung up in our kitchen. Its great for the kids to mess around on, and to set tasks in a way they can enjoy.
Does what it says on the tin!
