Description

Mezzie and Frank Sanding Block

Another one of those essential start up purchases for all chalk painters is this Mezzie and Frank sanding block.  This sanding block has two grades of sandpaper so you can choose which is most appropriate for your chalk painting job.  In between coats of Mezzie and Frank Chalk paint use this sanding block to give a very light sand.  After your final coat, sand lightly then dust off your piece before applying either

carnauba wax – for a durable finish and to bring out the depth of colour in your chalk paint

dark finishing polish – for a deeping of colour and shadow effect

clear acrylic sealer – for outdoor pieces facing the weather

Use

Your sanding block is a really essential part of your chalk painting toolkit.  It will last a good while if you use it in between coats and to achieve that distressed look on your painted furniture.  Be sure to sand lightly before applying any wax.  The smoothing of the chalky surface is really important so that the wax goes on smoothly and can then achieve that soft yet durable finish.  After use, especially with the stronger colours, pat off your sanding bock firmly to dislodge colour  particles.
