Chalkboards and Other Chalk Art Mediums

Selecting the right chalk art mediums for your project can be a difficult decision. Finding a quality product with the right surface is important. Because of the variety of chalk art mediums, it is important to determine if the substrate you are using is porous or nonporous.

Choose from nine sizes and five color combinations of the country craft framed chalkboards and chalk art mediums. Sizes offered are 8x10, 9x12, 11x14, 16x20, 18x24, 20x24, 22x28, 24x30, and 24x36. Colors include black, blue, green, red, and cherry. Contact us if you unable to find your desired style.

Porous Versus Nonporous

Porous surfaces allow the passing through of water, liquid, or vapor. Pigment from the markers could get absorbed when using porous chalkboards. These types of surfaces include chalkboard painted surfaces, wood, paper, and cardboard.

Nonporous surfaces will not absorb water and liquids. Nonporous surfaces like chalkboard labels, mirrors, glass, glazed ceramic, slate, metals, laminates, and some plastics, will result in liquid chalk being easier to remove.

Therefore, always test your liquid chalk markers on a small portion of your medium to see if they are right for your project.

The flecks in the metallic paint sparkled in the lights of the tree and are nice and opaque.

Additionally, one of our artists used a metallic marker and painted on one side of a piece of acrylic glass.  The result is a colorful shiny background that can be easily cleaned with Windex.  Artists can also use spray paint to complete the same effect on the back, but that would create a more permanent background on your mediumPaint markers used on clear plastic to create a wedding favor.
