Classic Chalk Art….what’s all the buzz about?

So you’re curious about Classic Chalk Art, huh? 

The biggest mis-conception is that it is created with chalk and can be erased or smeared….well, I am here to assure you it will not!  I have created a fun way to get the look of Chalk Art without actual chalk or a chalkboard, it is coined ‘Classic Chalk Art’.

Classic Chalk Art has been featured a few times this year….if you missed out stop-on by and check out the posts, here is a recent post…. click ‘Chalk and Chew, Huh?’

 We create the look with PrismaColor Pencils and DecoArt Paint.  The paint creates the time-worn vintage blackboard and the pencils appear grainy like chalk once they ‘hit’ the surface.  Pretty Neat, Huh????

Leaving some of the background work as a hi-light…keeps the look of Chalkboard Art.

Working in layers adds the special touch….especially the white, it is all in the layering and pressure of your pencil to create depth and dimension.

on the Slideshow below ⇓ are a few patterns (some coming this Fall) ….traditional all-white or color.  The color chalk-art is created using 5 or less pencils.

glitter and gift houses too!

oh and…I wanted to mention…keep PrismaColor Cool Grey 90% in your stash of Classic Chalk Art Supplies…..this is a great color if you want to shade or add more blackboard color into the background…..a great match to the vintage blackboard background.
