Well, the folks at Pébéo got in touch with me. They kindly sent me 3 bottles of their Porcelaine 150 chalkboard paint to share with you lucky people!
This is super special paint. It’s not regular chalkboard paint, and you can’t make it yourself with one of those “make your own chalkboard paint” DIY tutorials. This paint is specifically for use on porcelain (or other slick, non-porous surface like china, ceramic, or metal). After painting you bake the item according to the instructions on the paint bottle. Once baked the paint will not chip off, and it’s even microwave and dishwasher safe. I love it, and my mug and platter have held up well.
There will be three winners, and I will ship these worldwide. Enter the giveaway by commenting below before next Friday (June 22). Make sure to provide your correct email address (in the comment form, not in your actual comment), so I can notify you of your winnings. Good luck!
FYI, here’s Pébéo’s official statement concerning toxicity and food safety:
Porcelaine 150 paints have been given the ASTM D-4236 seal of approval by Duke University, they are completely free of any hazardous materials. They hold the AP Seal of non-toxicity from ACMI and they conform to toy standard 71.3, and are deemed safe for use by children. The Porcelaine 150 paints, outliners and markers contain NO lead or cadmium, they are water based and contain only NON-TOXIC materials. Inadvertent contact with food or drink is not a health hazard. Any decorative or utilitarian pieces may be painted. Paint the exterior of a drink container, and on a dinner plate, it is
recommended that you paint around the perimeter of the plate. If you paint the center of the plate, a steak knife or other utensil could damage your design. If a painted design becomes damaged by a sharp object, rough edges may be left on the surface. It is not approved for food or drink containers.
