I say successful, because I had tried it before using Versamark and chalk, but really couldn’t get it to look right.
That was until another lovely demonstrator over at ESAD showed me how.
ESAD is short for Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators. They are a bunch of helpful talented ladies that I am proud to be a member of.
Anyway, back to the chalkboard technique. I feel you get a much better result once you use the White craft ink and then colour with the chalk. I still have to improve on not smudging, but I feel this turned out pretty OK.
