Some time back I admitted to you that when it comes to painting or drawing, I come up empty handed every time. My handwriting skills? Sub-par at best. And with all the chalkboard cuteness out there, I wanted to get in on all the action, but, alas, I had to resort to other methods. Remember my Chalkboard Cheater tutorial?
Well, this time I wanted to do the same, but without using transfer paper, which is not quite permanent, but harder to erase than plain old chalk, so I took things into my own hands. Want to try? Here’s what you’ll need.
This is essentially the same method I showed you before, but instead of using transfer paper, you simply rub chalk on the back of your desired picture/text like this (the same way you did crayon rubbings as a kid):
Now just color it in, but stay in the lines! I just used a regular old stick of chalk (because I had it on hand) but if you want a more precise line, you could use a chalk marker. Just make sure your chalkboard is seasoned well so that it will erase easily (seasoned is just a fancy word for “rubbing lots of chalk all over it several times and wiping it down to get chalk into all the little crevices,” y’all-a good idea for all chalkboards).
