Do you wish to decorate with those cute chalkboard signs using cool chalkboard stencils? I know I always do but I am sometimes very crafty challenged. If it’s not simple, simple, simple then I ain’t doing it.
We have recently discovered an amazing product line of Chalkboard paste and chalkboard stencils called Chalk Couture.
And this Chalk project is simple, one can make gorgeous signs in just minutes. The only hard part is choosing which chalkboard stencil to use and which pretty color.
In no time at all, I can make the cutest chalkboard signs that are flawless, and the Chalk Couture paste is a water-soluble crafting paste that goes on wet, dries hard and washes off non-porous surfaces with water. So if I tire of one design, it can be wiped away and a new cute sign made in minutes.
See how easy it is to change signs and one doesn’t mind erasing it if it’s so easy in the first place. A wet paper towel easily wipes the chalkboard clean and it’s ready for the next creation.
See, now we can make a new sign on this chalkboard. Chalk Couture has numerous surfaces (click thru to see) to see all the many different chalkboard signs.
How to use Chalk Couture Chalkboard Stencils
Let’s start at the beginning and we will show you how to make a simple flower.
Chalk Couture has chalkboard stencils that are adhesive silkscreen, unlike any stencils I have ever worked with. They are reusable, wash them and wipe clean with sanitary wipes after easy use.
The aqua colored stencils are sticky on the back and adhere very well to just about any surface.
If your surface is glass, hard or glossy then it is recommended to stick the stencil on a fuzzy hand towel a couple times after removing them from the backing to “fuzz” them. This still enables them to stick but prevents them from bonding too strongly to the surface and then ruining the stencil.
Cut out the stencil and “fuzz” it and then adhere it to the chalkboard surface pressing down securely.
Apply a thin layer of Chalk Couture Chalk Paste in the color of your choosing using a Chalk Couture Squeegee
Drag the angled side of the squeegee across the entire stencil completely covering the design with the chalk paste. If you use too much paste then simply scrape off the excess and return it to the jar.
Remove the Chalk Couture stencil immediately while it is still wet because the paste dries quickly. Gently pick up from one corner and pull to remove, being careful not to touch the new design. Wash the chalkboard stencil immediately until no signs of paste remain. Then wipe both sides of the stencil with a disinfecting wipe to remove any chalk paste residue. Lay on a flat surface with sticky side up to dry. After it is dry replace it on the shiny side of the paper backer and smooth with a squeegee.
Continue these same steps for the rest of your designs. Chalk Couture paste dries quickly so it’s easy to add additional colors and designs immediately.
