Disclaimer: I received a free set of 8 Liquid Chalk Markers from Ander Blake Company in exchange for an honest & unbiased review. All opinions expressed here are my own.
These chalk markers are so much fun to use! When the Tampa Bay Lightning were vying for the Stanley Cup, The Dude saw a photo of Harry Potter wearing their bolt logo instead of his usual lightning scar and decided to show some team spirit on his Sorcerer's Stone movie poster. Fortunately it is framed with a clear plastic cover, so this cute idea was a go!
Liquid Chalk Markers should be used only on a non-porous surface so that they can be cleanly erased. We pulled out our new markers for their first test run. The bold blue dried quickly and tweaks to The Dude's design were effortlessly erased with a paper towel and redrawn. Yet another paper towel when the playoffs ended ... and Harry is back to his old self.
The windows were spiced up next with a "Welcome Home" sign for his Dad. These markers would be perfect for decorating store fronts and car windows too, I bet.
Getting started with these chalk markers really is child's play. Each one has a beveled point for altering the thickness of your lines. Plus, the liquid chalk flows freely without spattering and dries in minutes. Here is a short video that shows just how easy these are to use.
When I first saw these markers, I thought they would be good for dry erase boards or cafe wall menus. It turns out they are a great home decor accessory too. Quickly spruce up your space with lively doodles or holiday greetings, and remove them even faster. I love how the vibrant colors pop on mirrors!
While we were playing, a piece of beveled glass that I'd ordered for a scratched up end table arrived. My plan is to eventually place some antique postcards and pretty papers between the glass and the table, but I thought I'd have fun with a bit of reverse-glass "painting" first. This lovely lady swiftly came together using only with the glass table top, Liquid Chalk Markers, and tin foil. Check out tomorrow's post for a simple tutorial.
