Martha Stewart Crafts ® 2oz Erasable Liquid Chalk, White
Item #33554
Erasable Liquid Chalk is more durable and long-lasting than regular chalk. Applied like paint, it doesn’t smudge and washes away with a damp sponge, leaving no shadow. A convenient foam pouncer makes stenciling and silkscreening quick and easy. For best results, use it on top of Martha Stewart Crafts Multi-Surface Chalkboard Paint that has been conditioned by lightly rubbing chalk over the surface.


Other Supplies
Black foamboard


  1. Starting with a 11"x13" piece of black foamboard, cut of the top 1-1/2" of the long edge. This will be the clapboard arm.
  2. Paint the arm and remaining board with 2 coats of Chalkboard Paint. Let completely dry. (Tip: Paint the backside as well to help prevent warping).
  3. Starting from the right, stencil tape off a diagonal design (approx. 55 degree angle) on the arm and top 1-1/2" of the board, leaving approx. 1-3/4" spacing between the tape.
  4. Paint the design with Craft Paint in Wedding Cake. Let dry, then carefully remove the tape.
  5. Adhere Adhesive Stencils to the board underneath the design edge. Apply Erasable Liquid Chalk to the stencils, then remove stencils.
  6. Trim the left corners of where the arm and board meet. Glue a small piece of foam board to the back of the base and arm so that the arm is skewed diagonally.
    • Tip: Use a brass fastener to allow for the arm to move.
