    That's a really good idea! I have a white painted section of the wall over my desk at home with some clear perspex over it using mirror round head capped screws. Looks really cool and allows me to write on with dry erase pens and wipe of as well. The paint being the whiteboard surface would be even better!

    It's pretty pricey when you could probably buy a whiteboard for less. Does anyone know what the paint actually is? It might be possible to make up some of it DIY style.

    I'd imagine its like a high gloss hard wearing type paint, you you could paint a wall white then laquer it with automotive paint that'd work I reckon, abit extreme though haha

    In my previous location all the classrooms had 'whitewallpaper' - very effective and gives the instructor great flexability.

    Until they forget that it won't work on all the walls, just the white one.........

    They also have a habit of writing on the IWB's as well.

    The paint is also available in a small selection of colours other than white though.

    Wow, I want some of this for my flat!
    It'd be awesome, not least to see the look on people's faces when you just start doodling all over the wall! lol

    Pricing not easy to find but £120 for 'a kit'. It's 2 pack so once mixed there's no going back. A kit covers 50 M2 says one coat but I'd paint the area in white first. So not a cheap product.
