Chalking

My son is in his final year of Uni and doing a posh "garen shed" for want of a better description. He is intending to put a finish on the outside similar to teak decking. He has sourced some very good hard word, but is having trouble finding a suitable black chalking for the final finish. If he uses the sort of chalking used for teak decking it's going to cost him £150+, which is just not on.
Does anyone know of a suitable alternative that can be applied and sanded back to give a good finish? It will be displayed outside and therefore get wet, but will not be going into a marine environment.
Thanks as always
Steve

On a more helpful note, you might look at the Tec7 range Linky the 2 K Mix can be sanded...

BTW, I have heard from certain sources that the basic Tec7 is a suitable replacement for Sikka...
