Chalk Paste- What is it and why is it the best items for crafting! // Come craft with me!


Did you know that Chalk Couture has a current stock of 44 Paste colors? Thats a ton! You can create so much with a palette of colors that big! You can even mix them to make an even more customer shade of paste. 

So what is Chalk Paste?
Chalkology Paste is specially formulated for use with Chalk Transfers and Chalk Couture surfaces. 

What can I put Chalk Paste on? 
Chalkology Paste can also be applied to other nonporous surfaces such as mirrors, windows, glass, painted walls, and painted furniture. Hard, matte finish when dry.

How can I remove Chalk Pastes? 
While you can chalk anything, Chalk Paste doesn't come off porous surfaces as easy. But while using nonporous surfaces such as mirrors, windows, glass, painted walls, and painted furniture with some distilled water and a board eraser. There is always a Paste Scraper that helps take it off easily.  

How long does a 3 oz. jar of paste last? 
A long time! When pasting a normal size project, you are not using too much paste. And once you are done pasting, you put the extra back into that jar. It's amazing how little paste you need to complete a project. 

Are there any other sizes? 
Yes! A lot of the paste colors come in Singles! They are in a .19 oz packet and most times can be used  for more than 1 project. Plus you can buy them in a Palette Pack of 6 that come in colors that coordinate.  

Can you mix chalk paste together?
YES! This give you just about an unlimited palette of colors that you can make. Want to match your homes colors scheme- you can do it! That's what makes chalk paste so special- you can customize you projects to what works for you! 

What maintenance does chalk paste need? 
Paste is easy to keep up. When ever you open a jar to use, stir it well. If it feels a little dry, spray some distilled water into it. Spray a little at a time, then stir. Repeat until you get the consistency you want. Before closing jar, give it one more stir. Make you you only use distilled water.

Oh my Gourd- I Love Fall Metal sign // Come craft with me!

This is such a great item to use inside or outside your house. This sign only took about 5 minutes to make including set up and clean up. I love these projects since they are so easy to do. Plus, you can just spray it with water and wipe it off if you wanted to reuse the sign for another project. 

Oh my “gourd”! A funny autumnal play on words brings your Transfer collection to a whole new level. We know that projects made with this Transfer are going to get your friends and family to smile, especially when you’re giving those projects as seasonal gift items! For a different look, try using just the “I love fall!” portion by itself or in conjunction with any of our other autumn-themed offerings.

                        Come see how I made this! 


Step 1: Gather all your items together so they are in reach. I used a Hobby Lobby metal galvanized tag sized: 7 7/8 inches x 5 15/16 inches. I used 3 Chalk Pastes in Bright White, Black Velvet and Shimmer Pumpkin. I used 2 small squeegees and 1 mini squeegee. I used the Oh My Gourd Transfer

Step 2: Open your chalk pastes and stir them up so they are ready to be used. Add in some distilled water if needed but then new Chalk Pastes are amazing!



Step 3: Grab your transfer and a Fuzzing Cloth and fuzz well. I mean REALLY FUZZ! Use the back courser side of needed. 

Step 4: Lay your fuzzed transfer down and start applying you Chalk Paste to the transfer. I used 3 different Chalk Pastes colors. I started from the top with the Black Velvet Chalk paste, and then chalked the Gourd in Orange Peel Chalk Paste. If you are a slow chalked, I would use the Paste and Pull method. The Paste and Pull method is where you chalk and then lift the transfer up and pull down to the area you have chalked to. Hold it up until the paste looks dry. Then carefully lay it back down and continue chalking! The last part is to use the Bright White Chalk Paste in the words on the bottom. 

Step 5: Once you are done applying Chalk Paste, lift transfer up and wash it well. Let air dry and once dry, replace backer sheet

You are all done! Now it's time to show off your new DIY Oh My Gourd you made!


Watch me make it here: 

Are you excited for Fall? I know I am!

My take on May's Club Couture - Sweet Lemon Grove // Come chalk with me!

I absolutely loved this months Club Couture transfer! It's just perfect for spring and summer time! With a few different added in options, you could make this transfer in so many ways! 

You could place it in the kitchen and make a Lemon Drop! Sounds yummy! 


Ready to see how I made it? 

Step 1: Grab all your supplies that you will need. This makes it so much easier so you don't have to get up while chalking. I didn't use the trays since I have the jars of each chalk paste. Always stir your paste colors before you use them. If they feel a little dry, add a little bit of distilled water to it and stir well. 

Step 2: I used the main part of the transfer so I cut off the extra 2 pieces off. 

Step 3: Time to Fuzz Fuzz FUZZ! These newer transfers seem really sticky so fuzz it well so it doesn't stick too much to the surface. 


Step 4: Lay your transfer down onto your surface. Make sure its completely flat. 

Step 5: Make a game plan of where you want your paste colors to go. I went by the instructions and used the Storm Paste for the letters, the Lemon in Bumblebee Paste and the leaves and accent pieces in Meadow PasteI used the Small Squeegees for each paste color. Have your pastes close to you for easy use. 

Step 6: I started from the top and worked my way down. Once I chalked everything from the GROVE up, I used the paste and pull method. Thats when you lift up the portion of the transfer, so the paste doesn't dry out and mess up when you wait till the end to lift up the transfer. I laid the transfer back down carefully. I also pasted a little thick to give myself a little extra time. Then removed the extra paste right before I used the paste and pull method. 

Step 7: Lift up transfer and wash it off. The faster you wash it, the cleaner it will be. Use the Board Eraser to get it really clean, really easy. Its a great tool! After washing, lay it upside down so it can dry and you can put on the backing. These transfers are meant to be used 8-12 times each! But I have heard of people using them way more than that! Now clean your tools. During the chalking, I will wipe them will baby wipes, but when I am done, I just put them in a mason jar filled will water. These are easy to clean too. I've never even needed soap to clean them. 

Step 8: Display your awesome chalk art!

Here's a video on how I made it:

What Paste colors could you choose? There are so many options, the outcome possibilities are unlimited! 

What do you want to make your lemons into? 
A Lemon Drop sounds perfect to me!

Wings to Fly // Come chalk with me!

I fell in love with the Wings to Fly transfer when I saw it in the Winter Warm-Up mini launch. It's such a great saying in a pretty font. I had found this pretty Magnetic Chalkboard at Marshalls in a great big size. It was such a great find! I have so many great ideas and the best part it's reusable! That's what I love about the Chalk Paste... Create- Remove - Recreate again! So once I received my shipment with Wings to Fly, I just knew they were perfect together. 

This was an easy project to make. I actually had to make this twice. My 3 year old loves to hang out with me in my craft room. He's like my little chalking buddy who looks at all the fun items in my craft room. Since this is a large surface, I decided to sit on the floor and create it. After I chalked it, I pulled the transfer and went to wash it off. I didn't even think to lift it off the ground. After cleaning the transfer, which only took a few minutes, I walked back into my craft room to find that my little Mason had walked on it. He didn't even realize it. And when I said something, he felt so bad. I told his that I would easily remake it and not to worry!   And then he gave me the biggest hug. These are the moments that mom's live for. After that, I just sprayed the chalkboard down, wiped it away and rechalked it again. It was just that easy! That's one reason that I love Chalk Couture Transfers are reusable. 

Come see how I made it! 

Supplies Needed: 
Magnetic Chalkboard- Found surface from Marshalls




Step 1
Get all your supplies together. Open the Bright White Chalk Paste and stir it well using a Stir Stick



Step 2
Flip the transfer over and take off the backing carefully. Fuzz the whole transfer lightly holding down the transfer. This is the easiest way to fuzz a large transfer. Don't be afraid to fuzz it alot. If it seems really sticky, it might need quite a few fuzzings. Since the new transfers seem to be stickier, fuzz fuzz FUZZ! You don't want that to pull up the back ground up when removing the transfer. Once you are done fuzzing, grab the transfer, flip to back over and lay onto the surface. 





Step 3
Press the transfer onto the surface firmly and grab the Stir Stick and apply the Bright White Chalk Paste onto the transfer. Take the Handled Squeegee and glide the Paste all over the transfer covering all mesh areas. Since I am only using 1 color, I am able to chalk without it drying out. Once fully chalked, pull the transfer from the top to bottom holding both ends, making sure to not stretch the transfer. Now since these new transfers seem to be more stickier that the older one, evenly pulling the transfer is important. 

Step 4
Clean your transfer right away. This will ensure more uses. To clean larger transfers, I clean them in the shower. Make sure the wall is clean and place the dirty transfer on there. Use the shower head to clean with cold water. Grab your board eraser and clean both sides. Once clean, hang or lay sticky side up until dry. Once dry, apply backer and store away. 

Remember I told you about my 3 year old who stepped on it? Here it is:


And then I recreated it! Check out the finished project: 

Now enjoy your creation!
