Edith Wray, or Edi as her friends call her, loves scrapbooking and was really excited to try out Chalkola Chalk Markers.  Scrapbooking involves a lot of labeling as well as a many opportunities for creativity so Edi knew that she would find all kinds of new things to do with Chalkola Chalk Markers!

Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Chalkola chalk markers
  • Glass
  • Damp cloth
  • Sticking labels
  • Plastic magazine container
  • Spray cleaner
  • Art quality paper
  • Black art stock paper
  • Plastic envelop

Being able to reuse labels is important if you enjoy buying scrapbooking supplies!  Edi has her own business, Scrapbooking with M.E., near her home in North Vinemont, Alabama.

Platinum series chalk markers

Edi was impressed when she read the labeling on the Platinum series chalk markers.  As well as being non toxic and child safe the markers are acid free, long lasting, quick dry and washes easily out of clothing.

draw the ink down

She demonstrated how to shake the markers and draw the ink down into the nib by pressing the nib down repeatedly.

glass

These markers work beautifully on glass.  They would really come in handy to decorate glasses for an event or party.

glassware

When you’re done with the glassware the designs will wipe off easily with a baby wipe or a damp cloth.

sticking labels

Edi uses chalkboard vinyl self sticking labels to organize a lot of her store’s paper materials such as instructions and hand-outs.  If she could re-use those it would save her a lot of expense.  The red shows up nicely on the black background!

labels

All the colors show up well on the labels, even the purple.

plastic magazine holder

Edi uses plastic magazine holders to store paper because they are convenient to work with.  The chalkboard labels tell her what’s in the container.

plastic

She can use the labels to tell her the contents or she can use Chalkola chalk markers to write directly onto the plastic.

black Chalkola marker

She uses a black Chalkola marker to write on the spine of the container.

container

Now she can plainly see what’s in the container and the letters will stay there until she wipes them off.

red metallic marker

Edi is going to use a red metallic marker next.  She likes being able to use it without any preparation; she can just remove the cap and use it.

metallic series

Then she tries the silver, which shows up on the plastic much better than the metallic red.  There are six colors to choose from in the metallic series.

wipe away

The labels Edi wrote on earlier are completely dry now and she demonstrates how to wipe away the color.  She prefers using a baby wipe but a damp cloth will work just fine.  Chalkola markers wipe away completely on non porous surfaces but evidently the chalkboard finish of these labels are somewhat porous.  The marker leaves a shadow after being wiped.  Edi solves that problem with a little spritz of stamp cleaner, which completely removes any trace of color.

no trace of color

As you can see, no trace of color remains.  Chalkola chalk markers do work on porous surfaces but it takes a bit more effort to remove the color.  It’s easiest to use Chalkola chalk markers on non porous surfaces.

stamp cleaner

While Edi prefers stamp cleaner to take care of residue on the label, window cleaner or diluted ammonia will work just as well.

paper file

Next she goes back to the paper file to erase what she’s written.  She mentioned before that the surface of the file is textured with a pebble-type finish.  Sure enough, some of the color doesn’t come off because of the texturing.

stamp cleaner spray

The stamp cleaner spray quickly takes care of the situation and the file is completely clean.

completely clean

It wasn’t at all difficult to get the color from between the pebbling.  Now the file is completely clean.

art quality paper

Edi decides to try Chalkola chalk markers on some art quality paper.

scrapbooking

Edging is a popular technique in scrapbooking and Edi finds Chalkola markers to be ideal for the job.

black art stock paper

Trying another medium, she begins to use a marker on black art stock paper.

white chalk marker

The white chalk marker shows up brilliantly against the dark background.  Edi loves the way the marker glides so easily across the surface of the paper.

plain plastic fold

A plain plastic fold is the next surface she experiments with.  She is so excited about being able to use the markers on so many different surfaces and the easy cleanup!

creative

Edi recommends Chalkola Chalk Markers for anyone who likes to be creative.  They are especially suited for children since they are non toxic and clean up easily from skin and clothing.

Francesca (Frankekka Art) is a talented Italian artist who offers YouTube tutorials on step by step drawings and coloring tips and also does reviews and illustrations.  She really enjoyed reviewing Chalkola Chalk markers.  In this demonstration you’ll learn a technique that allows you to paint with Chalkola Premium Wet Wipe markers on a different type of surface.

Supplies Required:

  • Chalkola chalk markers
  • Doodle paper
  • Paint brush

jumbo markers

She likes the 15mm broad tip of the jumbo markers.

regular sized markers

The bullet tips of the regular sized markers will be ideal for coloring.

reverse the nib

metallic markers

Next she inspects the metallic markers that need no preparation; she can use them straight out of the box.

bullet tip

The metallic markers have a bullet tip that is quite versatile.

pressing the tip

She prepares the first marker by shaking it vigorously and pressing the tip up and down to draw the ink from the barrel into the nib.

Glass

Glass is a perfect surface for Chalkola chalk markers.

Cleanup

Cleanup is so easy with just a few swipes of a damp cloth!

draw

Francesca uses thick pastel paper to draw some doodles and a permanent marker to outline her work.  Chalkola chalk marker can be used on any surface but can only be easily wiped from non porous materials.

Chalkola colors

She finds the Chalkola colors very opaque, providing great coverage.  The color even covers up the permanent marker.

blue pastel background

All the colors Francesca has used are bright and beautiful, even on the blue pastel background.

Totoro with Chalkola chalk markers

Next Francesca starts to work on a Totoro she has drawn.  A Totoro is a character from Japanese lore, a forest spirit that guards the oldest tree in a forest.  She colors the Totoro with Chalkola chalk markers then paints over the color with a wet brush.

Blending the colors

Using the brush to soften the lines and colors of the chalk markers, she puts the finishing touches on her Totoro.  Blending the colors of the chalk markers with the paint brush produced a soft, beautiful effect that makes the creature very lifelike.

type of art

Chalkola’s vivid colors complement any type of art on any type of surface.

Francesca enjoyed her experience with Chalkola chalk markers and showed her audience that they are very adaptable to different techniques.  There are so many ways to create beauty with Chalkola chalk markers!

Sándor Vámos is a Hungarian artist who has been painting and drawing since he was a child.  His unique 3D drawings are both compelling and fascinating.  He thinks of art as a journey up a staircase that leads to the apex of a mountain, a journey to be enjoyed step by step.  Those who try to take a shortcut will find themselves standing on a hill, denied the view from the top.  Naturally, when given the chance to try Chalkola chalk markers, he jumped in with both feet and was delighted with the results.
