Update:



I'm unbelievably happy with the end result.

Went on very smoothly, took 3 coats.

A lil bit managed to seep through any gaps in the masking tape but I scraped it off and washed it down.

I actually sprayed the wrong side (because I'm an idiot), I thought I wouldn't be able to read the thermometer but I was just imagining things.



Sooo yeah... Blackboard paint is the way to go.

none of these streaks show '
I always spray long ways than switch short ways back to long ways and so on
this helps get a cleaner finish with no streaks
looks good though
lmao
hide the chalk just about fell on the floor
if anyone wrote on my tanks I would have to knock them upside the head a few times lol

Nope, it's streak-free.

In all honesty it was completely covered in 1 horizontal coat.

I just went over it 2 more times for the hell of it.
