Chalkboard paint!!!! I first learned of this after seeing Carrie at Greenbean's Crafterole do her tutu chalkboards, and I had no clue prior to that there was such a thing as chalkboard paint. So I decided it was time to go to Lowe's and give it a shot. This was so easy, it's ridiculous! I cut the penguin at 10" tall from Animal Kingdom out of a cereal box, and painted it with the chalkboard paint. I then used the face layer to paint the white for the face and orange for the beak. I have written and erased several times, and I love it!
I chose the penguin because I made this to keep at my boyfriend's, and he loves penguins! Every time we see one on TV, he gets a big smile on his face, so this was a no brainer. Sorry about the quality of the picture, but I had to use my cell phone, so it is marginal at best, but you can get the idea. Anyway, this was a lot of fun, and I highly recommend playing with this paint and technique to everyone! Thanks for visiting today.
