Steps To Create The Perfect Chalkboard!

Steps To Create The Perfect Chalkboard!
28/01/2016
  1. Sketch out the design first. Draw out on a piece of scratch paper what you have in mind for the chalkboard, it\u2019s a lot easier to switch around on paper than it is to keep drawing, erasing, drawing, erasing on your chalkboard.

  2. Use a level and measuring tape to space out where your words will go.

  3. Regular crayola chalk works the best.

  4. Water is your friend! You will mess up at least a few times even with all your careful planning. keeping a damp rag close by to help \u201cerase\u201d any mistakes. You will be using so much chalk that simply using an eraser is not going to work.

  5. Cotton buds are best! They enable you to go back thru and touch up/clean up any spots that are a little smudged or have a lot of detailing with a wet cotton bud.

  6. Make yourself a stencil. Using a design with repetition? Give yourself a break and make a stencil.

  7. Mix and match fonts. Use at least 2 fonts to add interest to any design but try to cap it to 3 or 4. Mix it up!
