Sophie, a manga artist based in the UK, hopes to become a full time illustrator.  She is interested in all kinds of art including Sioux, mucha, fantasy, Victorian along with many other styles and formats.  She has been featured in Neo Magazine and has written and illustrated a book, Jellybean.  Sophie tried Chalkola chalk markers and filmed her experiments on her YouTube channel, Sophira-Lou Illustrations.

Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Chalkola chalk markers
  • Picture frame
  • Sketch pad

Sophie was able to create a beautiful work of art with Chalkola chalk markers.

set of Chalkola

She received a complete set of Chalkola chalk markers, the jumbo Platinum series plus the package of regular and metallic markers.

Shaking and priming

Shaking and priming the chalk markers takes a few moments with each one but it’s pretty simple to prepare them for use.

sketched the basics

She has already sketched the basics of a parrot and positions a piece of glass over the sketch.  It will be easier to draw this way.

draw a parrot

Sophie chose to draw a parrot because of Chalkola’s bright, vibrant colors.  She had some trouble with colors bleeding into each other as she layered them.  Allowing the ink to dry completely before adding another layer solved that problem.

let them dry

Since Chalkola chalk markers are water based it’s always best to let them dry completely before adding another color on top of or beside the first color.

blend

You can see that Sophie doesn’t always allow the first color to dry before adding another.  Sometimes she likes to blend them as she does here with the yellow and green.

brilliant contrast

Allowing the base color to dry allows a brilliant contrast of two shades.

tree branch

She needs somewhere for her parrot to perch so uses the brown to start a tree branch.

switches the paper

Sophie switches the paper under the glass from white to black so that she can see the colors a little better.

different shades of green

The different shades of green are ideal for drawing leaves.  She has been working with the Chalkola markers for awhile on this drawing but the markers are extremely low odor.  Some chalk markers have unpleasant odors that make them difficult to work with for more than a few minutes but not Chalkola.

project

Chalkola is also completely child safe so you can do a project with your favorite young person.  Children love Chalkola chalk markers!

layer and blend colors

Sophie likes to layer and blend colors, as you can see in this picture that she did not film.  She can layer and blend with Chalkola markers but it took some trial and error.

sealant

She found that when the layers were built up heavily, they tended to flake off.  She recommends a sealant if you want to keep a particular project or you want to keep it from flaking until you’re ready to dispose of it.

backing in the frame

Sophie prepares to put the backing in the frame she is working with.

beautiful detail

You can see all the beautiful detail she was able to draw into her scene.

glass in its frame

Putting the glass in its frame and affixing the backing will make it suitable for display.

parrot so realistic

Sophie has made her parrot so realistic it almost looks like a photograph!

fantastic to use

She fills in a few more details.  The colors are so bright and “they are fantastic to use”.  She’s having fun trying different textures and techniques.

finished project

The finished project is beautiful!

Sophie really loved the vibrant colors of Chalkola chalk markers.  She also thought of many other things she could do with them such as decorating wineglasses, chalkboards, plastic, whiteboards and a host of other projects she’d like to try.  She will definitely keep Chalkola chalk markers in her most-used art supply inventory!

Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Chalkola chalk markers
  • Can of spray
  • Plain greeting card or white card
  • Glitters
  • Jar
  • Pieces of card stock
  • Wooden hearts
  • Glue

Step 1

Christina Griffiths started making greeting cards in 2008 in her spare time.  She began to sell them and became a guest designer for an online card site.  She later started her own website that’s existed for 8 years now and she has a very successful business.  She films tutorials for aspiring card makers and had a lot of fun with Chalkola Premium Wet Wipe Markers.

greeting cards

Step 2

Christina decided to try Chalkola chalk markers and was surprised at all the colors she has to choose from.  She can use jumbo sized markers, any of the 15regular markers, or get jazzy with the 6 metallic chalk markers.

Step 3

Choosing a jumbo yellow marker, she shakes it vigorously and depresses the tip several times to saturate the nib.

Step 4

You can see how brilliant the color is as she uses the marker on a piece of card stock.  It is just as vivid on clear plastic.

Step 5

Curious about claims of easy clean up, Christina prepares a damp cloth to wipe off the chalk markings

Step 6

Sure enough, all the color wipes off easily, leaving the surface clean and free of residue.

Step 7

She picks up a jar to see how easy it is to use the markers on glass.

Step 11

The jumbo red marker is great for coloring the heart

Step 17

She then lays a smaller white piece atop the black, creating a frame and matte effect for her card.

Step 18

On the smallest white paper she traces a heart.

Step 19

She outlines the traced heart with the regular sized red Chalkola chalk marker.

Step 24

A white chalk marker is used to make big and small dots inside the heart.

Step 25

Christina uses common household glue on the back of the paper with the heart to secure it to the black matte.

Step 26

She does the same to the black matte to make it stick to the base of the card.

Step 27

She carefully lines up the matte to the larger white card stock.

Step 28

You don’t need a lot of glue to construct the card.  Too much glue will make the paper soggy and leave ugly bumps on your card.

Step 29

Christina applies gentle but consistent pressure to make all the layers of the card adhere.

Step 30

She takes the two wooden hearts (remember those?) she made first and affixes them to the front of the card over the heart.

Step 31

She adds some words to the front of the card near the heart.  You can see how simple it is to make a card that a loved one will always treasure with Chalkola Chalk markers and a few minutes of your time.

Step 4

The closest non porous surface at hand is the plastic package of Chalkola markers so that’s what Lina uses for her first experiment.  She prints big, bold letters in Swedish with a heart to punctuate it.  Lina is pleased with the bright color and with how smoothly the ink flows.

Step 5

Now she is seeing if clean up is really as simple as the box says.  She uses a damp cloth to wipe away the color, noting that it does smear at first but it is simple to wipe away.

Dea Sabio is a digital graphic artist who recently tried out Chalkola chalk markers.  Although digital art is her forte she loves being creative in any medium.

Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Chalkola chalk markers
  • Chalkboard

She tried the Chalkola chalk markers on regular sketch paper and glass then saw how well they worked on a chalkboard surface.

chalkboard

The white is absolutely brilliant against the dark background of the chalkboard.

outline

Dea decides to outline her little ghost-like character in black to make it more defined.

black chalk marker

She fills in a few features with the black chalk marker.

blush

Using pink to make the character blush really draws attention to it.  Once Chalkola chalk markers dry it’s easy to lay another color atop the base without both smearing.

few more details

A few more details bring the character to life.  Chalkola chalk markers are very low odor so they are comfortable to work with.  In fact, most people can’t detect an odor at all.

character

Now that her character is done she’s going to make it talk.  These markers are great for coloring and drawing almost anything.

non-porous surfaces

Chalkola chalk markers are so easy to work with.  They write and color very smoothly on non-porous surfaces.

Chalkola chalk markers

Dea’s little character thanks everyone for watching her try out Chalkola chalk markers.  Initially, she had some problems with the jumbo markers dripping but soon learned not to draw down so much ink.  Learning to use Chalkola chalk markers is surprisingly simple!

A Digital Artist Tries Chalkola Chalk Markers

Dea Sabio, aka Lady Sithis, is an artist studying digital media at a California university.  She enjoys working in every medium but particularly likes digital illustration and hopes to carve out a niche in the gaming industry.  She was pleased to try Chalkola chalk markers and found them very inspiring.

Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Chalkola chalk markers
  • Sketching paper
  • Glass table

Since Chalkola chalk markers do best on non porous surfaces, Dea thought it would be a great idea to draw on her glass table!

Chalkola chalk markers

She received a complete set of Chalkola chalk markers; the Platinum series of jumbo markers with the 3 in 1 nib, ten regular chalk markers with interchangeable nibs and 6 beautiful metallic markers.

sketching paper

First, Dea decides to use regular sketching paper to try the Chalkola chalk markers.

Platinum jumbo markers

She tries the Platinum jumbo markers first.  These jumbo markers take some practice for many people to learn to use.  Dea evidently did not shake them up well enough because she says the ink is watery.  They will drip and leave splotches if they are pumped too much and let too much ink down into the nib.  She does think, however, that they have a nice consistency.  She is more impressed with the regular markers and likes the way they write so smoothly.  She likes the metallic markers but can’t see their brilliance because the lighting in her workspace is not adequate.

glass table

Now Dea is going to see how the markers work on the glass table she usually uses as a workspace.

brown regular chalk marker

Using the brown regular chalk marker, she draws the outline of a teddy bear.  She has no particular goal in mind except to doodle around and experiment with the Chalkola chalk markers.

teddy bear’s features

She fills in the teddy bear’s features and accents him with some pink, which shows up very nicely against the brown.

companion

The teddy bear is going to have a companion!  Dea chooses white to draw the next figure and notices how bright the color is.

arms

She accidentally drew the arms of the little white guy over his body but finds that she can use her finger to easily wipe away what she doesn’t want.

green grass

She adds green grass and starts drawing some flower to set the tone of her drawing.

balloons

Dea has added a lot of detail to her drawing including conversation balloons.  She likes the way the markers move so smoothly across the glass.

few wipes

Is cleanup really as easy as the box says?  It certainly seems to be!  A few wipes with a damp cloth and the glass is almost clean.

Cleanup

Cleanup was a breeze!

All in all, Dea really liked Chalkola chalk markers.  She recommends them for children, teachers, artists and crafters, and anyone enjoys vivid colors that are easy to clean up.  Non-toxic, low odor, and child safe, Chalkola chalk markers are fun for everyone!

Anna Komenda, a wife and mother of 3 children, lives in Poland and enjoys scrap books among other things.  She was delighted to have an opportunity to try Chalkola Chalk Markers.

Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Chalkola chalk markers
  • 5 photos from your app shots
  • Sheet of white paper
  • Plastic cover
  • Heidi Swapp color shine
  • Glue
  • Scissor
  • Small brush
  • Scrapbooking stickers

Anna is going to show how she makes a colorful, fun layout using Chalkola chalk markers and other materials.

set of five photos

She has a set of five photos she got from an app, depicting one person with five different expressions and five different animal attributes.

type that holds documents

She already has a sheet of white paper so all she needs is a plastic cover, the type that holds documents.

positions the photos

Anna positions the photos on the paper to make sure she knows where everything is going to go.

background of her composition

Chalkola chalk markers are going to make the background of her composition.

Chalkola markers

Anna uses purple, pink, orange, blue, and green Chalkola markers to make strips of color above each individual photo.

plastic overlay

Now she has her plastic overlay just as she wants it.

plastic to the white sheet of paper

She attaches the plastic to the white sheet of paper.

photo strip

Now that she has a stripe for each photo she can position the photo strip and continue her creation.

array

She cuts each photo carefully from the array.

colored paper

Anna chooses colored paper with which to back each photo.

similar color to the stripe

The photos will be backed by a similar color to the stripe above them.  This will contribute to the continuity of color and make the layout appear more professional.

animals

Many people have a favorite theme and Anna’s is animals.  Just like animals in the wild, Chalkola has vivid colors that attract attention.

position the photos

It’s important to Anna to position the photos just right so that what she adds later will have the most impact.

textured paper

If you look closely, you’ll see that Anna has chosen textured paper to back the photos with.  It adds another dimension to her layout and makes it more interesting.

matching colors

Sometimes matching colors will make more of an impact that choosing a contrasting one.

type of layout

Chalkola’s bright, vibrant colors make any type of layout special.

glues the individual photos

Anna glues the individual photos to their backing.

virtually odor free

One of the great things about Chalkola chalk markers is that you can work with them all day.  Other markers have unpleasant odors but Chalkola chalk markers are virtually odor free.

color shine

These are bottles of Heidi Swapp color shine that Anna will use to add some color to the white part of her layout.

small brush

She uses a small brush to dip into the paint and splash it onto the white paper.  It is the small touches like these splatters that will bring the whole creation to life.

supply of stickers

Anna has an impressive supply of stickers that include shapes, letters, animals, and other categories.  She uses stickers to illustrate her ideas and inspire emotion in those that enjoy her art and scrapbooking.

title of the layout

The title of the layout, “Inner Animal” will start on the left side and finish on the right.  The letters are carefully positioned to be visible but allow plenty of room for other embellishments.

types of stickers

Several types of stickers are used to convey a feeling of fun and playfulness.

central idea

When Anna is done with her layout it is very busy yet focused on a central idea.  It entertains the viewer but sticks closely to the central theme and keeps the focus on the photographs.

Although Anna did not use a lot of Chalkola colors in her layout, the chalk markers’ brilliant shades attract attention while keeping the focus on the photos.  Chalkola chalk markers can be used in so many different ways!

Maisie has had so many ideas as she tried Chalkola chalk markers for the first time.  Colors are very important to Maisie in her line of work and she loves the vibrant, bright colors of Chalkola chalk markers.

Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Chalkola chalk markers
  • Photo frame

photo frame

Maisie remembers a photo frame that she has in her studio and thinks it will make a good reminder tool.

attractive background

She has chosen an attractive background for her reminder.  It is interesting enough to draw her attention but not so overwhelming as to hide the message she needs to see.

cut the background

She has cut the background to fit the frame.  It certainly is something that will draw attention!

glass of the frame

Maisie has some films that she wants to make and others she needs to edit so she writes those down on the glass of the frame.

down at her work table

Now she will know exactly what she has to do every time she sits down at her work table.

finished reminder

The finished reminder is attractive, doesn’t take up much space, and is erasable because Maisie used Chalkola chalk markers.  As she does a task she can merely wipe it off.  She thinks this will also make a wonderful display of favorite quotes that she can change whenever she wishes. Maisie has had such fun testing Chalkola chalk markers!  In fact, she was so impressed that she intends to keep the set handy and use Chalkola chalk markers on a regular basis.
