Chalkola – Review and Giveaway

*This post contains amazon affiliate links*

The thing with chalk is that they snap easily and you get covered in dust! The sheer frustration when you have to get through half a pack just to finish writing one of your kids names on the floor. When Chalkola contacted me to ask if I would like to review their liquid chalk markers I of course said yes. I love stationary and given any opportunity to increase my stash and I am all over it! The thing with these markers though are the colours they are so bright and vibrant something I haven’t come across.

Getting Started

The boys and I had great fun in prepping the markers. In order to get them working you need to shake them and then dab them on paper until the ink seeps through. It takes a couple of minutes overall to do them!

Chalkola

Once the ink had seeped into the nib they are ready to use. The boys and I practiced our drawing on our chalkboard. We used Chalkboard paint to create our chalkboard, Chalkola had mentioned that it could be difficult to erase the markers because paint can make surfaces porous and absorb the ink. So I was already aware it wouldn’t wipe away as easily as it would if we used a standard chalkboard.

But they can be used on other surfaces too! such as whiteboards, plastic, glass and even windows! As long as the surface is non porous the Chalkola markers can be used. The reason for this is porous surfaces such as wood have small holes which can absorb the liquid and can be difficult to erase.

Where to buy

If you would like to try these pretty awesome Chalkola Markers, then the lovely people of Chalkola have given me a discount code for you to use! 15OFFSTR will give you 15% off all their products!  You can find the pens here –  pack of 21 markers or Jumbo 15mm Markers
