Zig Posterman Chalkboard Art BBQ promotional Chalkboards

Spring has sprung and that means it is time for barbecues! Here in this video, John Neal the sign writer creates a chalkboard for Aubrey Allen Butcher’s using markers and paint.  The Zig Posterman Chalkboard Art will bring customers in much more than a machine printed poster on a sandwich board.  While customers may be interested in the tasty BBQ offered by Aubrey Allen the Butcher, they will also stop and admire unique chalkboard art more often than you may think.

Starting the Zig Posterman Chalkboard Art Project

First, John added the letters “BBQ” to the board with a light pencil mark. In our studios we like to use a Violet Zig Illumigraph marker because it can be removed by rubbing when you are done or by using a damp cloth. After, John uses a 30mm White Zig Posterman marker for the base, adding color on top of once it drys. You can use a hair dryer, or if it is a nice day like in this video it will air dry very quickly.

Don’t worry about overlapping where you can use a black marker to clean it up after you are done. John then adds the colors Red, Orange and Yellow to the letters, adding a “firey” affect using a Big and Broad 15mm marker. Starting with red at the top, followed by orange and yellow. While it is still wet, he uses his finger to rub in the colors to smooth out the red to orange. Moving quickly, he adds the yellow and smooths it out into the orange which is also followed by white.

The next step he uses a broad chisel 6mm white and red marker to outline the letters and add affects. The next step, he uses a 15mm Red and White marker to make charcoal under the BBQ. John then uses the Violet Zig Illumigraph marker to add 5 sections of 2 lines for an outline of where he will list the items using a small paint brush, and alternate colors. Notice how he dabs the marker on a flat service to get the paint. To clean up the chalkboard John uses Black paint to make it as good as new!
