You have been hearing me talk about Chalk Couture across my social media channels and you have also read a lot about it lately here on the blog. So, what is Chalk Couture? I have had so much fun discovering this line of products and making all kinds of things and since I have been sharing it, I am getting a lot of questions about it. I thought I would write a simple post that people could refer to that would help them understand what the craze is all about. It’s the Beginner’s Guide To Chalk Couture if you will.
Chalk Couture is a craft line full of reusable transfers that enable you to create home decor, gifts, pillows and so much more. The transfers come in all shapes and sizes so there are endless possibilities of what you can create. My favorite thing about the transfers is that you can use them over and over again (at least a dozen times) so they aren’t just a one-and-done craft. You get a lot of bang for your buck. The transfers are the designs that you can print onto anything you want; chalkboards, fabric, wood, mugs, metal, glass, etc.
With the transfers, you can either use the Chalkology Paste or the Couture Ink depending on the project you are doing. The Chalkology Paste is a paste version of traditional chalk that can be used on many surfaces. When you use it on a chalkboard, it can be wiped away when you are ready to change the artwork.
The Couture Ink becomes permanent once it is heat set on fabric.
To apply the Chalkology Paste or the Couture Ink, you will need a squeegee. They come in all sizes for every project you are doing. I have even cut the small squeegees down when I am doing smaller transfers or smaller sections of a transfers.
You can find all kinds of surfaces in my Chalk Couture store; from chalkboards to pillow covers. They have a lot to choose from, but you can also use things you have at home.
Here is a video I created to share a simple project using the Chalkology Paste and a metal sign from Chalk Couture:
Why Should I Use Chalk Couture?
If you are anything like me, you like to create and you like to change your decor in your home a lot. I also love to make homemade gifts. All of these things are exactly what Chalk Couture provides. Chalk Couture is also perfect for someone who has a store, a booth or sells in a flea market. You can make all kinds of things from the Chalk Couture products to sell.
With Chalk Couture, I love that someone else has done most of the work and then I just have to decide on the surface and play around with different paste or ink colors and come up with a one of a kind piece. It is so much fun and it is so simple to use! With only a few supplies from Chalk Couture, you can make hundreds of different things.
