Cardmaking with Chalkola paint markers.

Hello I hope you are staying safe and well. The people at Chalkola kindly gifted me a set of their Acrylic paint markers to try. They have also given me a discunt code for you to use if yu like the product and would like to purchase from

I have a youtube video to show a close up look at the pens and how I made a card using them. Click here to watch the video

As a card maker I had to see how I could use these markers on card and this is the result.

The pens are acrylic fine tip marker pens in bright vivid colours. They are made to work on a variety of surfaces such as rocks, metal, plastic, glass, ceramics, porcelain and even fabric. They are non toxic and perfect to be used by all the family. After I made my card I let my children play with the pens too. They easily wipe off making them putrefy for rainy day activities with the kids. The marker easily wipes away for mess free fun. Alternatively you can apply a coat of varnish over the top to make the artwork permanent on items such as rocks.

Here my daughter age 7 drew on the window. She loved doing this

The pens are great value and Chalkola work hard to make art accessible to all and these pens are a perfect way to share art with the whole family.
