Today in the wreath shop, we’re trying out Chalk Couture products. Yes, you read that right, no wreaths today! Instead we’re making a fun chalkboard using Chalkology Paste and transfers.

Our First Chalk Couture Projects

You may have guessed by now that I love getting boxes in the mail every month from places like Stitch Fix and Chalk Couture is no exception! When you join as a designer, you get a welcome kit of $200 worth of products and then for $24.95 a month you receive additional products each month. Today we’re opening our starter box and doing our first projects!
Chalk Couture is a versatile set of products that allows you to get that perfect chalkboard look! Have you ever tried to hand letter words on a chalk board using standard chalk or even chalk markers? It’s not easy! Not to mention weeding out details when use a vinyl machine.  Chalk Couture takes all of the guesswork out and gives you a sharp, clean, beautiful design the first time.
As I mentioned, after joining Chalk Couture as a designer we received our first starter box which costs $99 but is full with over $200 worth of goodies! Included in our Chalk Couture starter box was:
  • A cute Chalk Couture apron
  • Angled squeegee
  • Small squeegee
  • Assortment of Chalk Transfers (stencils)
  • Chalkology Paste – White, Aquamarine, Grey
  • Framed chalkboard
  • Circle chalkboard
  • Wax
  • Thank you cards

Basically everything you need to get started!

How to Use Chalk Couture Videos…

 

 

How to Use Chalk Couture:

  • Prep your chalkboard, if needed by rubbing chalk all over it a couple of times in different directions and then wipe down excess chalk. (If using a prepped chalkboard from Chalk Couture skip this step.)
  • Choose your Chalk Transfer and layout
  • Choose your Chalkology Paste colors
  • Place your Chalk Transfer(s) on your project
  • Spread a thin layer of Chalkology Paste over the transfer using the squeegee – work quickly, it dries fast!
  • Lift the transfer to reveal your beautiful creation!
  • Clean your Chalk Transfer immediately

Additional Tips:

  • Cut the small squeegee in half so it will fit in the paint jars better.
  • Place a damp cloth over your design if you need more time.
  • Wash your stencils quickly by keeping a pan of water close by.
  • Add glitter to your project before the Chalkology Paste is dry.
  • Use Chalkology Paste on sanded wood, metal, glass, fabric, chalkboards and more!

    The link to your Chalk Couture store did not work

      Yes, I decided that unfortunately chalk couture is not a good fit for my business model or my business’s core values and had to stop using their products.
