In a previous tutorial I should you how to do a DIY with Chalkboard Paint and now I want to show you my 3 favorite tools for writing with chalk. Enjoy!
After watching your previous video on uses for Chalkboard paint I have made a few projects for our home, and have found similar issues with the chalk pens – they're great for anything you want permanence on but not so good if you want to erase what you have written. For example, I made a clipboard similar to yours for our kitchen grocery list, and have used the pens for the top title that I dont want to rub off every week, and the normal chalk for the grocery items that change each week. I have also found that if you write on the board when its slightly damp (just-wiped), its easier to write more finely, and the chalk is more consistently "white". Love your videos!
Does the charcoal white erase easily?
What kind of chalk board paint did you use for this board
Where do you find the charcoal chalk pencil?
Awesome tutorial. Do you have one on how to lay out your design a head of time and then go over it w one of the tools? I have seen computer packages and how to do that but I want the real thing. But I also want to be able to have everything fit nicely on the board with angles and flourishes.
One more question, I have charcoal sticks which are a square shape, can these be used? They are in color and that would be neat to do a holiday chalk script. What site do you get your font ideas from?
If you wet the tip of your chalk, you can get a good solid line. I like the pencils, too. And wet, they're much more solid and bright. Of course, any chalk is going to be more solid and bright if it's wet, but I agree – the pencils are my favorite. Excellent info vid!
i love your videos your so craftie your awesome at what you do so um what atre your other videos
? Talking in questions…. Like nails on a chalkboard
Hello, I watched over again to hear where you purchased the chalk pencil, but didn't hear it? (Third example). If you could please advise, that'd be great. Thank you!
This chalkboard liner is great and very easy to use! – just cut and stick! Can be re-positioned: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WJQ08SC
I wanna learn how to write on a flat sided chalk. PLEASE!!
Stop talking. LOL:)😔
Why does it take you so long to write one little word in script?
Great tutorial, thanks!!! 😀
where did you get that chalk board? it is really nice
what utter rubbish. I write for a living why would you round off a chalk tip? Chisel edges give you lots of depth to fonts. Please don't tell people you know anything about this trade. you obviously don't.
I would have liked to see a close up when you were finished. Thanks!
just the thought of chalk makes my skin crawl…
Hi! Thank you for the video. I was wondering what did you use to get the light guidelines (before you used the chalks)?
AUGGHH…the sound of writing on chalkboard!
Mr clean magic erasers will completely take off the chalk markers! 🙂
thanks for the tutorial. Does the charcoal pencil come off easily?
500th like! very helpful. tfs all the details so clearly
I have a nice Magic Mentalism Trick that had the lone drawback of chalk messages being unclear or rubbing off halfway through the presentation. Thanks to your video, I think the solution is simply sharpening the traditional cheapy flat head chalks. I suspected this but good to hear from someone else prior to trying. Some chalk pens and even chalk holders can cost an upward of $7 so I am not really trying to try a whole lot of things that are expensive for no reason.
I'm so happy I found your tips, I'm going to look for a charcoal pencil!
