I was sent a set of 30 coloured chalk pens and a chalkboard to try out bu the lovely people over at Chalk Ola and they are amazing! They are so easy to use and the colours are really bold and stand out beautifully against the black background. I have previously purchased some of the white pens and found them really easy to use so I was excited to be able to add some colour to my creations!
One of the best things I found about the chalk pens were that they have no bad smell, usually with pens and markers you get that really strong chemical smell, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that these were odourless. The markers are also completely safe for children to use, which as a mom, is something that is incredibly important for me when it comes to choosing products. They are non-toxic and acid free, so Elliott was able to join in the fun with me
Now I’ve got the ‘boring stuff’ out of the way, lets look at what you can do with the pens!
I was sent a chalkboard by Chalk Ola but they can be used on any non-porous chalkboard (they can also be used on glass, metal and porcelain, so you’ll never run out of things to do with these pens)
Before use, make sure you give the pen a good shake and then get a piece of cardboard or paper and pump the pen until you see the colour seep into the nib. Unlike some markers I have used, the colour doesn’t flood out, so you don’t get any messes ruining your artwork. Make sure you put the lid back off after use, so as to not dry out the pens.
I have been messing about with calligraphy and different writing styles and these pens were so easy to use, they didn’t run into each other and they really stand out. Elliott also loved the fact that i could draw him some dinosaurs and Pokemon and they wouldn’t rub out!
The markers are really easy to erase, just take a damp cloth and wipe it away! It doesn’t stain the board so you have a blank canvas each time
I’m looking forward to see what other things I can create with these pens!
I would definitely recommend these to any one with young ones who like getting creative – or even as a treat for yourself, click here and use code LEIGH10 for 10% off your order
