What in the world is Chalk Couture?  As a Chalk Couture designer, I can say it’s awesome “chalk paste” with a cherry on top.  It’s addicting, easy, fast, gorgeous and yes, you can wear it!

WHY THIS IS FOR ME

I’m not a “join the band and fall in line” kind of gal.  I tend to do my own thing. Who am I kidding? I always do my own thing! I tend to stretch ideas that pop in my head as far as they can go, and then some.  These characteristics fit perfectly with Chalk Couture. Here’s why.

It is fun.  Actually, it’s addicting.

  1. I’m creating projects that fit my style.
  2. As an independent designer, I can choose how I sell the products.  Seriously, it’s whatever I am comfortable with…pop up stores, live or online, during local events, or sell items I create using the products.
  3. The idea is to use the products are endless. My mind is racing with unique ideas.  Things like Chalk Couture on barn wood, or painted furniture. Mixing colors. Distressing the transfer. Creating artwork using the products. I have a long list of things to create.

WHAT IS CHALK COUTURE?

Chalk Couture is a system that uses premade “silkscreen” transfers to add decorative elements to almost anything.

The transfers are plastic with a sticky backing.  The transfer can be easily cleaned and reused many times. The area on transfers where the Chalkology Paste transfers on to your surface is a lighter teal. The dark teal area keeps the paste from transferring on your surface.

The paste that’s like thick paint (chalk) that comes in little pots. There are tons of amazing colors and the colors can mix together.  You can use the chalk paste on most surfaces except glass, metal, and fabric. {More on how to transfer on those surfaces below.} It works on chalkboards, but it also works on furniture, and your thrift store finds!

THE STEPS

Apply the transfer to the item you want to add the decor to. Apply the chalk paste to your transfer, and then you use a squeegee.  Only a small amount of paste is used and you cover the transfer areas using the squeegee, then clean up any extra and return back into the pot.  Then lift the transfer and be amazed. It’s so easy, fast and the images are so crisp.

Next, you clean the transfer right away with water and wipes.  Then lay on a flat surface to dry sticky side up. Darker chalks may stain the transfer, but that’s okay because you can still reuse the transfer to make more amazing DIY projects.

Wipe the Chalkology Paste off if and create another project, or if you want to keep your creative chalk design, just spray with matte clear spray paint.  This one works fine.   

To see just how easy and fun, watch my speedy video. I realized the audio is still in but I don’t think I talked to myself for a whole two minutes!  Incredible!

 

WHAT ABOUT GLASS, METAL, AND FABRIC

There is also ink that works on glass, metal, and fabric.  The ink uses the same transfers as the paste and the steps are the same to apply the design.  When the ink transfers, you use heat to seal the transfer. If the item is oven safe, add it to a cool oven.  Heat to 350 degrees. When your oven reaches 350 set a timer for 30-minutes. After 30-minutes turn the oven off and let your creation cool in the oven.

WHAT IF IT’S NOT OVEN SAFE?

Use a heat gun to set the ink, like this one.

SO BACK TO WEARING THE PRODUCT, HOW?

The ink works wonderfully on fabric.  The possibilities are endless! From pillowcases to tea towels to t-shirts to hats.  If you can iron it, you can ink it! Plus there’s white ink!! I’ve looked for white ink for my printer for years without any luck.  Now I can transfer white ink.

SURFACES

There are several types of surfaces available.  My favorite is the board & pillar stand.

Of course, you can use the product on tons of different surfaces like old books!
