My latest arts and craft discovery has been chalk markers! My first project using these has been in sorting and organizing all of our home school supplies. The supplies I’ve used are similar sized containers and glass jars. To label them I picked up a few packs of chalk labels. The chalk labels came with a regular piece of chalk that I was very disappointed with. The marks left behind were barely readable and quite unattractive. I tried Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers on the labels and the results were much more bold and very appealing to the eye.
The difference between a regular piece of chalk compared to these chalk marks is very noticeable. The markers give a much more professional look. Things to note are that the markers do take a little bit of prep before writing. One simply follows the instructions in shaking the marker for about 30-60 seconds and then depress the tip of the marker until the ink flows. The extra time for use is worth the effort. Once prepped and ready to go, chances are you won’t have to take the preparation measure again for a few more uses.
The uses these markers have are pretty endless since they can be used on any non-porous surface. This list includes windows, glass, dry erase boards, mirrors, chalk labels, glossy boards, and so forth. I’ve found these great in designing on my white board, sliding glass door, labels, and so on. I did use these on a small cheap chalk board I picked up at a craft store and left my design on it for several days. I ran into the issue of the markings not wanting to come off . So please, always test your surface first! Every other surface I’ve used these on the writing and art wipes right off with a damp cloth.
Other things I love about these markers is that the clean up is easy. The markers have a double sided tip (6mm Chisel/Bullet Tip) which allows for great writing quality! The colors are ever so vibrant. These are non-toxic and have no odor whatsoever. Marks dry quickly. You basically get all the benefits of chalk without the dust, the smearing, and often limited color spectrum!
I highly recommend these markers to everyone! These can be used for art, crafts, home organization, advertising, decorating classrooms, and so much more. The price is a bargain for the top quality chalk markers you’ll be receiving!
