Chalkola – A Review
We were really excited to be sent some Chalkola Chalk Pens which can be used on any non-porous surfaces such as chalkboards, whiteboards, glass, plastic and windows. It is recommended that you do a test patch just in case.
As it is Christmas I thought we’d have a bit of fun with these and make some cool tea-light jars which could be used for a centre piece or placed on the fireplace.
When you first open the pens you have to give them a really good shake and then press down the nip so that the chalk comes through, and then you’re good to go.
Isabelle was really keen to get started with these.
We decided to make some tea-light candle jars which we could use as a centre piece for our Christmas table.
What you need:
Jars – Of any size or shape as long as you can drop a tea-light candle into them
This is Isabelle in action with the pens which could be used just like felt tip pins.
As it was on glass we just had to be careful that we didn’t smudge them, and also allow time to try (only a couple of minutes) or some of the colours run together.
These are our Christmas Tea-light jars which as you can see we have decorated with Christmas Trees and Christmas Lights.
Isabelle was keen to keep going with the pens so we decided to Jazz up our Dog’s Treat Jar which I think he quite likes.
I think the Chalkola Pens would be really great if you’re using chalkboards for your wedding – you could make some really cool personalised table number plaques or use a large one to create a seating plan.
These pens get the thumbs up for both Isabelle and I. You can get your hands on a set for yourself and we have a Discount Code for you. Just add 20OFFSTR at the checkout to get 20% Off.
