Graphite is not black. Many of you were disappointed because you thought it looked black but when you started to paint, you realized that it is more on the gray side. Here is the lid with what I think is a pretty true look at the color. It will be darker or lighter depending on where you put your piece.
I did this piece in one afternoon. Chalk paint is so easy to use. Remember, you don't have to prime and it dries very quickly. It's one of the benefits of using it. :)
Hope you have a great week.
