What is writable paint? Turn any surface in a creative area

Home Works writable paint is a transparent dry erase paint that can turn a smooth surface in a writable area. Grab a whiteboard marker and just start writing or drawing. Maintenance is easy – just wipe it clean using a microfibre cloth. Our new paint also contains antibacterial silver ions, helping to keep the surface nice and clean.

Writable paint is a great alternative to the old whiteboards because it can adapt to any space and surface. You can transform any space in a creative zone. Write anywhere and then quickly wipe off to allow your wall to blend back into the background.

How to measure your surface Calculate how much paint you will need

To calculate how much whiteboard paint you need, use a tape measure or meter stick to measure the height and width of the area you want covering and then multiply the two measurements:

Height x Width = Total Area

For example, if your wall is 2m high and 1m wide, you need 2 sq.m of whiteboard paint (2m x 1m = 2m²)
