Create something fun with liquid chalk markers!

>

Have you ever worked with Liquid Chalk Markers?  I created some colorful rocks with liquid chalk markers this week.  A fun, simple project that even the kids would love!

liquid chalk marker project

I currently live in Maine.  It is unofficially the land of fun shaped rocks.  I find myself collecting them in buckets and baskets and leaving them about the RV, taking up room that we really don’t have.  There is something about them that draws me.

So when I was presented with a box of brightly colored liquid chalk markers, I decided to create some rock art.  Want to know how?

For this project I used:

Assorted flat river rocks
Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers
Black Acrylic Paint

Begin by painting all of your rocks with the black acrylic paint.  Granted, you can leave the rocks their original color, but I went with black for a great contrast with the liquid chalk markers.

This set includes 18 different bright colors, and I wanted to try each and every one of them!  Liquid Chalk Markers can be used on any non-porous surface including chalk boards, mirrors, glass and even metal.

Oh… and rocks too!

How do they work?  Make sure to shake each liquid chalk marker with the cap on before getting started. Next open the cap and then depress the tip of the marker on to a piece of paper until the ink flows into the tip (about 1 minute).

You know it is ready to draw with when the tip of the pen turns color.

Then start drawing away!  Naturally, I went with paisley.  Seems that I have a thing for both rocks and paisley.  Well, as my husband says, it keeps me out of the bars.  Right?

Anyway… the markers worked beautifully!  They created crisp, smooth lines in beautiful vibrant colors.

Look how pretty!

Also, the tip of the marker is reversible. It can be a chisel point tip or a bullet point tip. You can remove it and flip it around for two types of print styles!

Love this!

And the creating possibilities are pretty endless.  How about a fun project for the kids on a rainy summer day?  This just might be the ticket!  These fun liquid chalk markers are water based for easy cleanup!

    I am so stuck on chalk markers. I bought chalkboard labels for my kitchen and I found a bright and lovely purple one to go with my canisters! I would love to own a complete set of these for use in my crafts!

  • Rebecca Wright August 3, 2015, 12:47 pm

    I think this is a great idea and I would decorate Ebeneezer stones for people.

  • Anonymous July 15, 2015, 8:06 am

    What a great idea Suzy! Do these markers erase like chalk would on a chalkboard? If so I am totally getting some for menu planning because I HATE the feel of chalk on my fingers! Thanks very much for sharing at the Living with Style linky party. I hope you will come back and share again this week!

  • S.I. July 11, 2015, 1:30 am

    I picked up some rocks from our favorite beach that I would decorate, and a few flowerpots.

  • Laura G. July 10, 2015, 6:32 pm

    i would take them to the library with some scrap wood and make a project with the kids.

  • Caroline Joyce July 10, 2015, 8:48 am

    I want to decorate some black frames and desk accessories for my daughters room. She loves black with bright colors.

  • Dana July 10, 2015, 1:10 am

    Your rocks are gorgeous! I love rocks and the idea of painting paisley on them rocks my world. Really it does, but no pun intended. Thank you for a great giveaway! I need to go rock hunting!

  • Ann Meagher July 9, 2015, 11:34 pm

    these look great.
    For starters I’d work on a chalkboard door in my 1st grade daughters room. Maybe for sight words or math problems or just cool art 🙂

  • Nicole July 9, 2015, 3:51 pm

    I’d make coasters!! Maybe paint the bottoms of glass coasters so the chalk wouldn’t come off. Cute!

  • Tianna July 9, 2015, 1:07 pm

    these are so cool! I would decorate my windows and maybe some small tiles with quotes so I could hang them on my wall for daily inspiration ♥

  • Hollie July 9, 2015, 11:54 am

    Aw I LOVE the designs you put on the rock. Very groovy!

  • Shelly @100Things2Do July 9, 2015, 8:25 am

    I let my girls make chalk drawings on our garden fence – we’ve had entire murals out there brightening up our yard. While regular chalk works well, the colours don’t seem nearly as vibrant as these markers. I’d love to try them with my little Picasso’s! Thank you for the opportunity!

  • Mary lane July 8, 2015, 11:45 pm

    I would love to color rocks , eat with my grandchildren. If I do not win- where can I purchase some – looks like a lot of fun!!

  • Mary Gilbert July 8, 2015, 6:26 pm

    Shared! Thanks for posting on Moonlight & Mason Jars

  • Cindy DeSpain July 8, 2015, 3:17 am

    The rocks look fun. Can I use them in scrap booking? The colors are lovely! Thanks for the chance to win these and the cool rock project.

  • rachel cartucci July 7, 2015, 10:50 pm

    I want to paint up some old antlers I found out in the woods.

  • Cheri Brown-Arata July 7, 2015, 2:27 am

    I dont know what I would dowith them yet but these chalk markers are so cool!

  • Janet Berquist July 6, 2015, 11:52 pm

    I would also paint rocks. I have done some and really like it!

  • Donna Wirthlin July 6, 2015, 10:20 pm

    Wow, these are awesome! Your art is awesome! If I were to win I would most likely use the markers to make garden art on slate. Or for scrapbooking-I am into scrapbooking:). Please share your post at our link party–it would be a great addition!

  • Anna Mc July 6, 2015, 9:26 pm

    I have a freshly painted block wall around my back yard. I would love to have my grandchildren paint a mural using this liquid chalk. We’d have to involve the great-grandchildren, too! BTW, every year at family reunion, decorating rocks has been a family favorite for years! We have always used acrylic paints, with a polyurethane coating. I have quite a collection lining the sidewalk to my door. I think Arizona rocks would give your Maine rocks a run for the money!

  • Mary H. July 6, 2015, 7:18 pm

    I watch several little children every so often and I thought that this would be an entertaining project for them to do on rocks.

  • Susan doty July 5, 2015, 9:06 pm

    Have lots of river rock would love to do some with my grandchildren.

  • Michele Davenport July 5, 2015, 12:55 pm

    We have had the rainiest summer ever here in PA! We have a camper that we are at all summer. My 11 year old nephew would love to sir and use these! (So would I!)

  • heather pageau July 5, 2015, 10:08 am

    my 11 year old is always asking what she can do (craft wise) this would be great for her she would have some much fun. cool for a perteen!

  • Rose Hopkins July 5, 2015, 8:44 am

    Would love to do your rock decorations. Or maybe something with children @ kids camp

  • carolyn francis July 4, 2015, 8:17 pm

    I would like to try them on my polymer clay jewelry that I make. love the colors.

  • Heaven July 4, 2015, 6:28 pm

    I would hand these off to my amazingly creative daughters. They would have a blast with these!

  • Michelle Rowse July 4, 2015, 9:22 am

    I would love to use them to jazz up my old dreary kitchen table.

  • Pat July 3, 2015, 8:56 pm

    I’d like to try painting some picture frames black, decorating it with the paints, and hot glue some seashells on them to hold beach vacation photos. Sigh. I love the beach.

    Thanks for offering this, and thanks for the tutorial!!!

  • Danielle K July 3, 2015, 8:19 pm

    I’d like to try and use them for my handmade cards!

  • Marcia Embry July 3, 2015, 4:27 pm

    Suzy those look so cool. I’ve been crafting before it became cool, they have so many things out there I want to try. But the possibilities for these are endless. Garden stones, flower pots (inside and out), concrete bench for garden (you’ll have to put a few coats of shellac on to maintain art) it could look really nice. Good luck ladies

  • Kasey Davis July 3, 2015, 6:55 am

    I can see myself using these chalk markers in any number of ways: decorating clay pots, making designs on my mailbox, designs on the glass in picture frames in place of matts, stepping stones for the garden and the possibilities go on and on; limited only by your imagination!

  • Brenda Sanderson July 3, 2015, 2:19 am

    I can think of so many different projects I could use these wonderful liquid chalk markers on. I would invite my grandchildren, the special needs children that I work with or let my sr. citzens who have had strokes create with me. Oh, what found I’d have sharing these great markers and showing off my ideas.

  • MARTHAIA July 3, 2015, 2:15 am

    I would try these markers on pavers & garden pots also on gourds I am growing .Decorate many things…TY

  • Katherine Buchanan July 3, 2015, 1:51 am

    I think I would probably start coloring on everything! How fun!

  • Kelly Nagorka July 2, 2015, 11:58 pm

    I have several chalkboards lying around that I’ve been wanting to do something with. I’d love to try these markers!

  • Debra July 2, 2015, 11:55 pm

    I would have to try the rocks like you but would also fancy up some flower pots. Enjoying reading about your travels. Happy 4th!

  • Kathy July 2, 2015, 11:51 pm

    I am not very creative, this is one reason of many that I love your website. I would first try them on the rocks like you do, and if I can be a little creative with them, I would try using them on windows, glass, etc.
    I would love the chance to win them first and when I learn to be more creative then I can go out and buy them.
    I hope to have your talent someday.
    Kathy

  • SueK July 2, 2015, 11:05 pm

    I would love to try this project with rocks…..looks fun…..;)

  • Emily July 2, 2015, 10:54 pm

    These are awesome – I have a few things I am thinking of – including rocks!

  • Barbara Moore July 2, 2015, 9:53 pm

    Wow just from watching what you did with them on rocks, makes me want to paint a bunch of rocks with them! Your rocks look so bright and pretty. I have a few that definitely need some of those chalk paints used on them.

  • Tammy Cordery July 2, 2015, 9:51 pm

    I would get an old chalkboard and let them go wild. For me I would get the white one and draw some sayings that I saw on some web sites on a small chalkboard.

  • DiEtta July 2, 2015, 9:23 pm

    I think it would be fun to make the rocks into turtles, glueing little rocks on bottom and one the top so the stones look like a turtle. Then decorated the top of the stone (the turtle shell). These markers are a must have in ones “things to do with” the kids box!!! You could write SMILE on the rocks, decorate around the word and leave for someone to find. It would make someone feel really good!!! 🙂 Suzy….you should have a blog one day having everyone post pics what they did with the markers. 🙂 Have a safe and wonderful 4th of July. Safe travels with big hugs.

  • Madonna Anderson July 2, 2015, 8:44 pm

    I really love these markers and the effects. I have never seen them before. They would be great for all kinds of mixed media techniques because they stay solid color and you can layer them without blending if needed. That is what it looks like from your examples. It would be fun the put them thru the wringer and see what they can do on different surfaces. Are they permanent or do they wipe off like chalk without a sealer. I am an experimenter and love to play and then I pass on my results in classes with friends mostly these days. Whether I win or not thanks for posting this great product. Where are they available to purchase? ( should I not win the giveaway,ha ha)
    Blessings………………..Donna

  • Darlene July 2, 2015, 8:36 pm

    These look like something my senior residents could handle with ease. We have painted rocks, and will start painting small wooden birdhouses to decorate our Christmas trees. As an Activity Director for a senior community new easy to use
    product is always a treat to find. I have used several of your ideas and everyone enjoys the finished product. As with everything budgets are tight and we would make GOOD use of this product.Thanks

  • Auntiepatch July 2, 2015, 8:22 pm

    Give them to the kids to write on the sidewalk?

  • Jari J. July 2, 2015, 8:21 pm

    The rocks in my front yard.

  • Anonymous July 2, 2015, 7:42 pm

    I would paint some old Altoid boxesblack and decorate them and use them to store pins, etc.

  • Cindy D July 2, 2015, 6:55 pm

    I would makeover old jewelry boxes I have collected from thrift stores

  • glenda July 2, 2015, 6:51 pm

    love the way this looks! alaska has GREAT collectible rocks, too!!!!

  • Barb T. July 2, 2015, 6:51 pm

    My grandson loves to make colorful things – picture frames, garden stones, flower pots and pictures. He gets discourages using a paint brush and paints and these would give him more control and make him one happy kid.

  • Denise F July 2, 2015, 6:05 pm

    Wow, what a great product. They would make such pretty decorations on herb pots for the windowsill and on mirrors and on furniture for the screen porch … oh, all the possibilities!

  • jay c July 2, 2015, 5:42 pm

    I would like to make painted paved stone for my backyard garden with alpona design.

  • Anonymous July 2, 2015, 5:37 pm

    I would use them with my grandkids. I would also use them in various places in some of my makeovers of items

  • Anonymous July 2, 2015, 5:31 pm

    Wow! I don’t know where I would start. I’m starting to redo my thrifting pieces for gifting this holiday season. These would be great for me. I have severe arthritis and correcting mistakes would be so much easier. Can they be sealed with food grade clear coat? Where are they being sold?

  • Kim July 2, 2015, 5:28 pm

    Love these! First I think I would doodle on some mirrors. But, I also babysit for 2adorable girls, and we do a craft project whenever I am there. We would have so much fun!!

  • darlene k July 2, 2015, 4:57 pm

    I just posted anno by mistake. I have craft days with my grandbabies and we could make rocks and even do some clay pots with them. They would have a blast doing it and then they have gifts for their parents for Christmas. I am teaching them that gifts can be made and they don’t need to spend a lot of money on gifts. Each year I do something new and they just love it. I now have the neighbor kids wanting to do things too. Good thing I have a large table. They are keeping my young.

  • Shanda July 2, 2015, 4:30 pm

    Would love to try this with some Mod Podge Crafts!!!!!! and OF COURSE some little projects with MY 2 YEAR OLD GRANDDAUGHTER!!!! Her and Gammie has SO MUCH FUN MAKING THINGS!!!!!!!

  • Dianne July 2, 2015, 4:18 pm

    I’d love to make rocks like you did. And then I’d paint my clay pots, and maybe my watering can, then my mailbox. I like some of the other women’s ideas, so I might try some of them too. These look fun to experiment with and that’s just what I’d do!

  • Roberta Yancy July 2, 2015, 3:30 pm

    Would love to try them on mirrors and ceramics.

  • Richard Dominguez July 2, 2015, 2:56 pm

    Wonderful idea, I would use them on rocks as well but make them into wall plaque displays

  • Susan Mara July 2, 2015, 1:58 pm

    I would use them on my mailbox!

  • lali July 2, 2015, 1:47 pm

    Liquid chalk marker! I didn’t know this product and be happy you make me to learn about that. I surely use them to decorate some jewelry hanger to put my earrings. But the use of it is endless. Thank you again to introduce this great product. Hope to win .

  • Charlene Otting July 2, 2015, 1:43 pm

    My grandchildren and I would paint rocks and leave them all over our city for people to find. A little piece of found art to make someone’s day a little brighter.

  • Deborah West July 2, 2015, 1:42 pm

    I have three 4 & 7-year old girls that would love to do this project. Looks like a fun summer activity. Thanks & Happy 4th of July!

  • Stacey Muller July 2, 2015, 1:18 pm

  • Pamela July 2, 2015, 1:07 pm

    What a cool idea! I am fairly new to crafting and I’d not even heard of Chalk Markers before your post. Thanks for sharing!

  • Candice Lewis July 2, 2015, 1:03 pm

    I have want to try pens similar to these but I have not seen any this cool! Thanks for sharing, happy 4th !!

  • Deborah Parks July 2, 2015, 1:01 pm

    I would love to create some of these cool rocks for my friends and in my own garden!

  • Jeanne G July 2, 2015, 12:58 pm

    How I would use them depends. Are they washable while wet ? If so I’d use them to outline & then paint it’s so hard to erase my pencil marks.
    Right now I’d paint birdhouses since I went crazy on those e-bay auctions !

    I have a lot of gourds

  • Marie July 2, 2015, 12:58 pm

    I’m a senior citizen, actually, I’m older than dirt! Looking for inspiration for a new hobby, I came across your email and said, “I’ve never tried this”. As you can imagine, I’ve tried a lot in my many years of life. I would love to win the Liquid Chalk Markers so I could challenge myself to “draw” on many non porous items. I can’t draw a strait line but it would be good for me to try and exercise my brain so I don’t lose it’s capacity.

  • Dawn A. July 2, 2015, 12:52 pm

    I would leave messages for my kiddos and husband on the bathroom mirror each morning.
    Also I would decorate our terracotta flower planters, and also make extras to give as gifts.
    Also I could have my kids decorate large flatter rocks in my mom’s garden with inspirational things to make her day.

  • Sheila Lenz July 2, 2015, 12:48 pm

    Hi! I would love to try these out with my grandchildren!!

  • Anonymous July 2, 2015, 12:46 pm

    I have a collected a bunch planter watering bottoms of pots. ( no mosquitoes ). I was trying to figure out how to decorate them nfor the fence in my backyard, to brighten it up. These would be perfect. I plan on having my grandchildren help me with this, as they have helped me plant my veggies, and flowers.

  • Leslie July 2, 2015, 12:30 pm

    Recently retired from teaching for 28 years and finally have time to find new fun ways of doing something creative. Oh my, so many ideas popping up on how to recycle items in my cupboards like all those glass flower vases and odd number coasters to start. Need to get me some of those markers…….and keep an old lady happy, happy, happy.

  • Kristi Fairfield July 2, 2015, 12:18 pm

    I would use them on a picture frame or flower pot.

  • Keryl Montague July 2, 2015, 12:14 pm

    Plant markers. Try them on cards, calendars, labels (so I can see them better), everything!

    Thanks

  • Carolyn Garrod July 2, 2015, 12:14 pm

    Theses are soooooo cool!!!!

  • Shelly Elderdice July 2, 2015, 11:51 am

  • Eva Felder July 2, 2015, 11:47 am

    Every June I teach Art at a Spanish Camp in Houston Tx. I am so excited about the markers. I am planning to make “My Neighborhood” using recycled materials and the markers will be just perfect for all details.
    Thank you for all your ideas and learning about unexplored materials.

  • Teri Daniels July 2, 2015, 11:27 am

    My daughter and I would love these!! We paint a lot of small wooden boxes that we use, give away and sell for various items such as crayon boxes and memory boxes. These look as though they would give us some wonderful control and Beautiful Bright Colors!!

  • Gale Masterson July 2, 2015, 11:15 am

    My great niece and I would spend tons of fun time creating…..everything!!! So many ideas, so little time!

  • SUSAN JACOBS July 2, 2015, 11:11 am

  • Mary Kay Michaels July 2, 2015, 11:07 am

    I would embellish small pieces of wood to make jewelry pendants for my friends…makes cute floral birthday gifts.

  • Deb July 2, 2015, 11:07 am

    OOooooo! So PRETTY!!! These would be fun to doodle on the walls with, but I would probably be good and use them for writing on chalkboard books for my new Granddaughter!!! What a pretty way to learn to read and write!

  • CindyM in Oregon July 2, 2015, 11:03 am

    So many ideas, so little time. Rocks, clocks, chalkboard walls for the grandkids to draw on. I have some plant pots that need attention too. Thanks for sharing and the giveaway. Good luck all.

  • heather July 2, 2015, 10:36 am

    You never fail to impress me Suzy. I love these little rocks and if I ever came across these markers I would buy them. Are they waterproof? Or maybe…….can you varnish tops ? Whatever way, they are so colourful.

  • vickster July 2, 2015, 10:35 am

    This is so awesome would love to play with these as I am also a rock collector.

  • Donna Moody July 2, 2015, 10:34 am

    These look like great fun would love to try with my preschoolers!

  • Holly Koiro July 2, 2015, 10:26 am

    I would coat tiles or dominoes with black gesso and then paint cute sayings & graphics on them. Something new and fun. Also, I have 3 neighbor children, “my little friends” who would love to experiment with them.

  • Kelly Thompson July 2, 2015, 10:21 am

    Love your rocks and have actually been wanting to make some!!! I would love to win and try my hand at those, LOVE the colors too!!!

  • Louise Snyder July 2, 2015, 10:18 am

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, your paisley rocks, THEY ROCK! I do have a mirror I have been wanting to decorate for my kitchen. I have tried regular permanent markers but it’s not working out to good. I’d LOVE to try these markers to see where my creativity would take me.

  • Cindy Shipp July 2, 2015, 10:13 am

    I have a small chalk board sign I can use by my display and these markers would be wonderful to decorate my sign and attract attention to my space. They are so bright and cheery and I’m sure people would ask what I used. Just another marketing alternative for the company.

  • Gilda July 2, 2015, 9:54 am

    Love your ideas. My grandson is really into rocks right now and this would be such a fun project for us to work on together. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • Jan Walker July 2, 2015, 9:48 am

    the grandkids and I will be making fairy gardens and sealed, decorated rocks will be fun!

  • Sadie July 2, 2015, 9:42 am

    I Would use the chalks to do many projects with my granddaughter we have loads of rocks to paint and a few unpainted garden ornaments that we have made previously

  • mary Standard July 2, 2015, 9:36 am

    I have been wanting to paint some colorful rocks for a long while now and like you I have collected many rocks (especially heart rocks). This would be the perfect opportunity to start my collection. I want to make a basket full and give them to vuests who visit my home. They would make great Christmas gifts and birthday gifts also.

  • Lynda July 2, 2015, 9:35 am

    Does the chalk wash off with water if you don’t seal it? If so I have a big concrete buddha head in one of my plants outside that I would love to decorate………….temporarily of course. I don’t think he would mind.

  • Diane W July 2, 2015, 9:34 am

    Would love these markers to go over a boring glass light fixture…thinking celestial 🙂

  • Carol July 2, 2015, 9:34 am

    We have four granddaughters that love to do crafts when they come to visit. Many wonderful things they would make with these . Stimulate there imaginations.

  • Bridget H. July 2, 2015, 9:22 am

    Wow what wouldn’t I color with them rocks, the outer casing to the queen palm. Anything that might hold still long enough. Maybe not a live alligator, but you never know. 🙂

  • Tashianna Sumey July 2, 2015, 9:21 am

    We have a river in our front yard and the kids would go nuts painting rocks! But we would finally paint their little wooden picnic table all kinds of crazy! 🙂

  • Connie B July 2, 2015, 9:16 am

    I think that I would get a old small brick, clean it up and put names on them for Christmas presents since money is always tight !

  • Anonymous July 2, 2015, 9:16 am

    lol what wouldn’t I color with chalk markers, rocks, the wood like covers to a date tree, bricks.

  • karen July 2, 2015, 9:14 am

    I have a concrete turtle in my garden I’ve wanted to paint for some time. I would base coat it then fill in with the markets, then clear coat it to preserve.

    I have been carrying rocks around with me from home to home with a vision of decorating them. This is a great way to decorate them. I think I would make one a flag. I think it’ll be good for the boy’s too. I like to work with marker tips like that too 🙂 .

    My first thought was projects with the grandkids. They would love painting on rocks or stepping stones. Maybe paint black chalk paint on a vase and let the kids decorate with chalk markers. Fill with handmade paper flowers and give to grandma, auntie, teacher. The possibilities are endless.

    I have some very old black chalk board I would love to use them on. I would also decorate some flower pots and rocks. You have inspired me to get to it. Thank you.
    Wonder if they would also work on gourds?

    Being a gramma of two boys ages 5 and 7 this is a great summer project for us. I am always looking for something we can all do together inside as we live in the desert southwest where today the temp is 109 and humidity is 50%.

    I would love to use these to decorate the pots on my patio. They need some refreshing!

  • Ramona July 2, 2015, 9:09 am

    I have a bunch of tile and broken granite pieces. It would be so much fun to try out this product and make something wonderful with them. I could make some neat pieces to go in my focal garden.

    A great give-a-way! Happy 4th of July to you.

    I would make a beautiful cross from stone or wood & put up at the cemetery by my family members & friends. I truly enjoy your site. Thanks for chance to win these 18 color chalk marker.

  • Linn Jencopale July 2, 2015, 8:59 am

    I would like to try it on clay pots and rocks.

    I BUY OLD SMALL TABLES AND MAKE CHALKBOARD DESKS OUT OF THEM. THESE WOULD BE GREAT FOR DECORATIONS ON THEM.

  • Peggy July 2, 2015, 8:54 am

    I did not know these awesome colors are available! If I don’t win I will have to get this set. My DGS and I use these all the time for signs in his play store and play office. We have many boards I made and if he does not like a sign any more I paint over it and he creates something else. The pens are so easy for him to handle. Yesterday he made a car to put over his body.
    You have so many great ideas!

  • Debi July 2, 2015, 8:54 am

    I would love to try these markers on windows, rock and whatever I could get my hand on.

    Hope your enjoying your travels, your in my neck of the woods now, Maine. I’ve lived here all my life. Just bought a home in Las Vegas for the winter months, but here in Maine for the summer.
    I like what you did with the river rocks, they are so 60’s. I’m laid up with heal surgery, but like to make jewelry, you stated it could be used on metal, I guess I’d use it on my etched metal to add color.
    Have fun in your travels.

    This takes Zen tangles to a fun new level! Love these and will watch for them.

  • Susan July 2, 2015, 8:43 am

    I live in the mountains and we “grow” a new crop of rock every year. I would let my granddaughter,5, decorate some and seal them forever!

  • Bunni July 2, 2015, 8:42 am

    They would be great on bricks to make garden stones. A coat of clear coat to protect from weather.

  • Sophia Varnava July 2, 2015, 8:41 am

    These are soo cool. I have an artistic 19 year old who would love to use these. I can only imagine the creations he can make with these.

    Plus I love your site. I get so many great ideas. keep up the great work

  • Jean July 2, 2015, 8:40 am

    I think me and my great grandaughter would have so much fun painting rocks together!

  • Donna July 2, 2015, 8:38 am

    This would be awesome on flower pots as well as the stones

  • Staci Culberg July 2, 2015, 8:36 am

    I would write encouragement or jokes on the bathroom mirror for my children and hubby to read every morning while they brush their teeth. We do chalkboard countdowns for all fun events we have planned. I’d use the fun colors for that instead of the white chalk. My daughter is a craft-aholic at the age of 6. I’d let her imagination go wild!

  • Jessica July 2, 2015, 2:49 am

    I think I would use them to draw on flower pots. Seems like a marker to use on flat textured surfaces.

    Usually I use them on my windows for decoration and for writing my Bible memory verses above the kitchen sink (I’m always there, I might as well look at and do something useful), but you’ve given me great ideas! I love the rocks! And I’ve wanted to make some chalkboard signs for my friends too.
