Blackboard paint, why keep some on hand

Why would you want this as a SHTF prep? 

Simple, if things go sideways who is going to be making paper and pen's.

 now you can recycle existing paper Click here PDF
 But that is a lot of work for less important notes.

Just a little info about Blackboards Click Here

Now you can grab a can at the hardware store to have on hand or you can learn how to make it. 

How to make blackboard paint

- Paint (of any color or type) and some (you can make your own paint in hard times Click Here for  PDF)
- Non-Sanded Tile Grout  or plaster of paris (but a prepper side note Cement can be used to you can even take the time to ground down a small piece if sideways to make it)
- Simply mix 1 cup of paint and 2 Tablespoons of grout. 

    you have chalkboard paint.  
 And sheet-rock is every where and makes excellent chalk.  

Even if you do not want to grab the ready made paint. Keep a jar of the grout or plaster in you prep's

The uses may not be at the top of must haves in a STHF situation, but a need to get the world back in order.

This can turn plywood into a :
 - School board 
 - Community board
- War board......(which reminds me of the walking dead when Morgan had a map on the wall).

- Even to mark reusable jars and containers


- Make smaller boards for kids 
- Make smaller ones to carry with you with directions or what ever list you may need, Even to just write down things you noticed  along the way 

Song for this post was a hard one to find so I got creative...blackboards = teachers = “Teach Me Tonight” by Amy Winehouse
