Chalk Board Paint Crazy!

jan 2014 007100   Oh yeah so by now you have seen that Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® carries Chalk Board paint in the Textural Accents collection! Let me tell what I love about it! 1. No odor! It doesn't have an offensive smell smell like some paints do. 2. Good coverage!  I did not have to prime the shiny surface, the paint grabbed on! 3. It's fun!!! I love Chalk Board paint! I think I may have gone Chalk Board Paint Crazy! Things to remember... 

jan 2014 008100 1. You will need several coats especially on a non porus surface like this one, I used three layers of paint and a heat gun to dry in between. 2. DON'T get this on your clothes- it's black need I say more? "  jan 2014 010100 What can I use to draw on this wonderful new Chalk Board Paint?" I am so glad you asked ! The possibilities are endless! If you are going to reuse your surface over and over go get your  PITT® Pastel Pencils (that's what I used here),  if you are looking for something more permanent that pops try using the Metallic PITT® Artist Pens,  Metallic Gelatos™, or the white Stamper’s Big Brush Pen ! I promise you will have fabulous results!  photo 3 (2)photo 1 (1) Here are a couple of samples form the make and takes at CHA (sorry the pictures are blurry-camera phones yuck! But you get the idea!) Both ladies doodled on the bracelets (covered with Chalk board paint) with a white Stamper’s Big Brush Pen, then the lady on the left went over hers with a  green PITT® Artist Pen! And the results - Fabulous!   It is easy to be chalk board paint crazy when the possibilities are endless don't you think?
