Today I am taking on the world of chalkboard art. To prepare for this task I have gather some chalk board paint, black canvas, sponge applicator, and some stencils. I also have two lazy assistants, Sadie and Ace. Lazy assistants optional.
According to the directions, you need two coats of chalkboard paint one hour apart. They suggest a 24 hour cure time. Here I am painting a small canvas.
I also acquired some spray adhesive to see if the stencil would work better. It did work better but not good enough. I am convinced thin plastic stencils aren’t very good. You can see for yourself.
So I felt a little stuck. I am not a very good painter but I didn’t want to give up. So I thought maybe stickers? But a Google search of floral stickers didn’t impress me. So what to do…..
I was settling on chalk but then I heard about chalk pens. So of course I had to investigate that. They appeared magical and they might even work with my stencils. Now to find them!
I ended up free handing it with the chalk board pens. Here is the final result!
