Painting with full strength Vintro Chalk Paint™ in a textured finish provides superior coverage often requiring only 1 to 1 and a half coats. A textured finish allows brush strokes to go through your finish, and they can be as chunky, and rustic as you allow depending on your brushing. This will allow you to create an aged or textured finish  allow you to detail with a decorative wax, lacquer or glaze to bring out that texture.

What one and a half coat mean? 
How to apply your half coat

Remember : It's all about coverage not coats, if you have completely covered in one coat, you are done. If you can still see slight peeps of wood then a half coat is best, as you have already created all your texture and most of your coverage in the first coat. You don't need or necessarily want to do another thick layer of texture or paint over what you have already created, the half coat is really to just fill in the gaps. By watering it down it allows you to seamlessly fill in the gaps with little to no texture.
