Upcycled Lamp Shade :Chalkola Chalk Marker Review #3

 

 

Chalkola Lampshade

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!  I made three upcycling projects using the pens and give them two thumbs up.

I had an old burgandy colored lampshade that I covered completely in a nice coat of black chalk paint.

Chalk markers need to have a non porous surface to work so I covered most of the lampshade with waterproof Mod Podge.  I thought it would add a nice texture if I left some of the original chalk paint, so I used painters tape to mark off stripes.

I had fun making making whimsical flower shapes with the chalk markers and defined the lines matching the dots and flowers.

Altogether I really enjoyed my chalk marker crafts!  It was really nice of Chalkola to gift me with them and I do recommend their brand if you haven’t tried chalk markers before!
