I've been in a real crafting funk lately. With all the diy projects we have going on at home, as well as the end of year school programs that are piling up, I just haven't found the time to get my craft on. In my world, this is unacceptable! Crafts are the one thing that I can do that really mellow my busy mind. They take me to my happy place. Whether it's sewing, using clay, or just doodling on an art pad, I'm resolving to find a little time each day to do what I love most. Sewing and clay work usually take time and effort, but if I only have a few minutes, doodling still gets the job done. I've been playing around with these Liquid Chalk Markers from the Ander Blake™ company for a few minutes every day, and think they are a great way for me to feel like I'm able to fit a little art into each day.
The pack includes 8 vibrant colors that work on all non-porous surfaces, like glass, plastic, mirrors, ceramic, chalkboard and whiteboards. The 6mm chisel tip allows you to create fine or broad strokes. There is a pointed edge, or easily pull the tip out and turn it for a rounded edge.
The markers are mess free. I didn't find the liquid to run or drip at all. They are also easy to wash off with using just a wet cloth. I did have to follow up with a dry cloth or paper towel on my whiteboard, but it completely came clean without leaving any residue or staining behind.
However, I HIGHLY encourage you to test your
writing surface in an inconspicuous area before going all artsy on it! I
went gung-ho on my chalkboard without testing and found that the
markers stained my board where I wrote. I do have chalkboard paint to give it a quick fix, but needed to point out that it can stain certain surfaces, so be sure to test before going full throttle with the chalk markers! I do love how the colors pop on the black background though!
The markers are fun to just doodle with each day, or use them for special occasions. Write a little love note on the bathroom mirror, words of encouragement on a car window, or use to liven up restaurant menu boards! They also look amazing on black card stock! The possibilities are endless!
Liquid Chalk Markers are currently available in an 8 pack and can be purchased at Amazon for $17.95. If you would like to learn more about these liquid chalk markers, or any of the other fabulous Ander Blake products, be sure to visit their website.
