Chalk Ink Markers Review
The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen Book talks about using chalkboards throughout your home, which reminded me of my secret chalkboard markers! Oh my, I love these liquid chalk markers! I discovered them at Starbucks one day…
I asked the gal behind the counter what they used to make their chalkboards so charming, vibrant and colorful….she pulled out one of these markers to show me….I could not wait to get me some! I found them on Amazon and since then I’ve had so much fun creating all kinds of messages to bless my home and family! I have chalkboards all over my house. I love to write fun quotes, scriptures, the menu for an event, love notes, welcome home and Holiday greetings. They wipe clean with water, or Windex. If the color is extra thick, you can sprinkle a little of Barkeepers Friend sink polish, and scrub the chalk off. You can blend the colors while they are wet and write on anything that is non-porous, such as plastic containers, mirrors, windows, and metal.
They come in a variety of colors. The Earthy Set of 8 Chalk Ink Markers includes these colors: Grape Jelly, Granny Bird Blue, Popcorn, Cayenne, Parker’s Dreamsicle, Teddy Bear, Green Tea, Spanish Tile.
The Classic set of 4 Chalk Ink Markers includes these colors: Chalk White, Clown Nose Red, Pacific Blue, and Smiley Face Yellow. Chalk Ink Markers are clear and bright and really make your chalkboard message something special, beautiful and fun. It’s the little things that we can do that make our house a home…a chalkboard with a message of love is one of those things!
If you don’t want to order an entire set you can also order the markers individually:
Piggy Bank Pink
Clown Nose Red
Candy Corn Orange
Granny Bird Blue
Smiley Face Yellow
Teddy Bear Brown
Chalk Board Paint
Gals, this is the chalkboard paint I use! It’s called Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint
It is so easy to apply onto an old cupboard door, or a vintage drawer to create an adorable surface to write loving messages to your family. As shown in the Farm Chicks book, Serena and Teri made farm-style chalkboards out of white enamel-ware pans! How cute is that!! I use a sponge brush to paint it on. You will want to give it two coats. It dries fast and the clean up is a breeze! This is such a darling home project, a fun and easy gift for a friend, and a great craft to sell!
Here’s some more pics, just for you ;)
