We used the blue stuff from B&Q to paint an old rectangular piece of chipboard which the DCs use to put the scalektrix on, and play with cars, chuggington train set, lego etc. They can draw whatever they want for the scenery and then just wipe if off if they want to change it. Great fun!

I can't imagine what you really what to find. I think may be you need a black board. I am just making a fun just now, I hope you can find it soon.

Yup b&q. Got some blue the other week. Limited colors yhough. Dark blue, black and possibly a sparkly one. They also do a magnet paint which we used for a border around black board you can make your own too. Tutorials on the net.

I bought some Annie Sloan chalk paint and was assured it is good for chalkboards in all colours - I guess you don't wax it over. If you don't want a big board a tester pot might do it.

from the website:
Any colour blackboard - as long as you use one of our terrific Chalk Paint colours. Have a Emperor's Silk or Monet Blue Blackboard for instance. Write on it with a stick of chalk and when you want to clean it off just wipe over with a damp cloth.

Yes. My dc have a purple square of chalk board paint in their room. I got it from B and Q too many years ago to remember the brand, sorry.

No idea, but you can make it according to Pinterest

i mean the paint that would traditionally black, not the stuff to write on it (chalk or alternative) if so where from please? I have googled and can't find any so i'm wondering if that means it doesn't exist!
TIA
