Repurposed Flatware EAT Set: Chalkola Chalk Markers Review #2

Chalkola eat for blog

I got a surprize email from the Chalkola Company wanting to gift me some craft supplies to tryout and see if I would recommend them to my readers.  I never have tried Chalk marker pens and definitely had a lot of fun using them!  This is the second of three upcycling projects using the pens and I give them two thumbs up.

I saw this photo on Pinterest and loved the idea, it became the inspiration for the three 10 x 10 gallery wrapped canvas set.

It was fun to dig through Goodwill’s flatware bin to find pretty designs.  I used salad forks because they are shorter.

Paint the flatware bright colors and paint the canvas complimentary colors to suit your decorating pallette.

I used the chalk markers to make the dots.  It is amazing how fast the chalk markers dry!

Before I permanently glued the flatware to the canvas I outlined the alphabet letter with a whimsical design and filled the outline with squiggles.

I had fun painting cherries, lemon slices and strawberrys to decorate each canvas.

After each canvas is assembled I sprayed them with a light coat of acrylic sealer to make the chalk marker permanent.

The chalk markers are very juicy and I LOVE the opaque coverage….when I’m using acyrlic paint pens sometimes you need several coats and even then the colors don’t pop on a colored background. I LOVE THE POP OF COLOR!

The price of the set of chalk markers I used costs $16.95.

The Chalkola company is happy to provide my readers with a 10% discount using this code: WHIMZIVILLE10
