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.
