How to Make Magnets

Instructions

  1. Sand Paper and Primer First things first, give the magnets a little sand to rough them up. Then spray them with the primer, go lightly with the spray. If you get too heavy handed with the spray the paint will run so best to spray really lightly and do a couple of coats.

  2. Chalk paint: Once the primer paint has completely tried, it’s time to apply the chalk paint. Paint each of your magnets in nice long strokes, avoiding having too much paint on the brush. Apply two coats. Tip: I found using a wide paint brush gave the best finish. Once they are completely dry you can start decorating them with chalk!
