Chalkola Liquid Chalk Markers can be used on practically any medium but if you want to erase your art easily you should use a non-porous surface. The term non-porous means that liquids and air cannot penetrate the material in question but stay on the surface.

Here are some examples of non-porous surfaces.

  • Plastic
  • Metal
  • Glass
  • Ceramics
  • Leather
  • Vinyl
  • Sealed tiles
  • Porcelain
  • Varnished wood
  • Non-Porous Chalkboards
  • Whiteboards
  • Windows

You should always test your surface first in an inconspicuous area. Sometimes there can be some confusion about porous vs. non-porous; wood, for example, is porous but if it has been varnished or covered with polyurethane it is non-porous. If in doubt, ask yourself if water will roll off the surface without sinking in. If the answer is yes then it is a good medium for liquid chalk markers.
