Pavement Chalk

March 8, 2012

So here is a simple way to re-purpose leftover plaster. I had some given to me by my aunt as her boys have well and truly outgrown the homemade fossil stage. I rolled up some cardboard tubes, added a smidge of food colouring and let it set.

Verdict: It works well and feels more solid than chalk and rubs easily onto the pavement but the colour faded really fast. I was supposed to use powdered tempura paint but (or course) I couldn’t wait.
