I received these Fun Chalk Markers a few months ago and was immediately impressed with them!
To make the artwork I taped some Halloween-themed cookie cutters to some black card. I used the Wilton Grippy set – it includes a bat, pumpkin, cat and ghost, and has a really soft rim at the top of each cutter.
Then I got out the markers. They do need a little work to get started (pressing the tip down, shaking etc), but when they get going the colors look amazing!
They were quick to dry so I removed the cookie cutters and the artwork was finished! Note: it was a tiny bit tricky to get the chalk markers into the narrower places of the ghost shape, so I finished it off after removing the cutter.
As you can see I did three shapes to a page, but for my son I just taped one at a time. He had a good attempt at coloring all round each cutter.
The finished pictures looked great!
We even experimented with layering two colors, which looked very effective!
