Chalkboard Technique

Ok boys and girls.  This one is fun and will work for hand carved or store bought stamps!  You are going to need a few supplies, but you probably have most of them on hand.

First you stamp the image in white pigment ink (or another color for a funky effect) and then while it's wet, you dab on chalks or artists pastels with a cotton ball or sponge daubbers.  The stamps I used are a two step process so you lay down the background and then stamp the outline on top of that.

Tee Tip

If you are doing this on something that is meant to last (like and LTC/ATC) then you need to seal the chalk before you stamp the outline or send off the project.  Artist fixative is a convenient way to do this.  Dick Blick has a wide range available, but you can find it at your local craft store as well.

So get out your chalks and pastels and play!

Here's the project I did for Easter.


  1. Question: Can you use hairspray as a fixative?

  2. Beautiful! I love the chalks and gorgeous color combo.
