DIY Chalk Art Mug Rack- Land of the Free // Time to get your craft on!

 



I bought this mug rack at Marshalls a few years ago in the clearance section. I spray painted it with black chalk paint and have been using for different holidays ever since. One of the best crafting purchase I have made in a long time! Worth ever penny for sure! 

Come with me as I make this 4th of July Mug Rack! 

1. First I got all my supplies together. I have used this transfer many times, so it has already been cut of the larger retired transfer. This is just a small part of it. I also grabbed my Squeegees- small and mini, Chalk pastes in lots of different colors, stir sticks and masking tape.


2. I fuzzed my transfer so it wasn't too sticky.

3. Now I placed my transfer down. I pressed down to make sure it was adhered well. 

4. I placed some masking tape on top to ensure I didn't accidentally get chalk paste off the transfer. 



5. I grabbed my Bright White Chalk Paste and I used my stir stick to grab some paste out the jar. Then I grabbed my small squeegee and started spreading the chalk paste all over the transfer. 

6.  Time to remove the transfer and wash it up. It's best to wash your transfer right after you use it and not let it sit with paste for a long time. 

7. Onto the next transfer- A Star transfer. This is from a retired transfer, but there is the current transfer that has stars on them called the 1776 Patriotic Stars. I used Ocean Mist Chalk Paste for this star. I will stay that this chalk paste was a little chunky, but it works just the same. 

8. I am using the same star transfer without washing it first. Did you know you can do that?!? Yes you can! This saves a lot of time. On this star I used 3 different paste colors in Ocean Mist, Bright White and Candy Apple. I used the the-dye method. I just placed small amounts of each paste color all over the transfer and then used my small squeegee to mix it all around. When you remove the transfer, it creates this fun the-dye look! I really enjoy using this technique a lot. 

9. Now onto the next 2 stars. First I am going to use a different star transfer on the left in Candy Apple. It's kind of hidden but you will see it at the end. Once again, I am going to reuse the same transfer I just used. This time I am going to use a retired paste called Shimmer Splash. It's one of my favorite Chalk Paste colors ever! I Even though the transfer still has red on the transfer... that's ok! And as you can see in the last picture, there is no red residue! 

10. Now these smaller stars are made with a current transfer called Land of the Free. This transfer may look a little different since it is a new type of transfer. Same easy way to use, but more see-through to easily to layer and I would say easier to clean too! First I used the Bright White Chalk Paste, and the I used Candy Apple, retired Shimmer Splash and Shimmer Gold Chalk Paste on the smaller star. Once again, I just reused the same small star with the different colors. Once done, clean up your transfers with water and a Board Eraser. Then dry upside down. Once dry, place backing back on and store to use again later! 



11.  Now that it's all done, I hung it back up and hung some of my 4th of July Rae Dunn Mugs.

February 2023 Club Couture -Welcomish // Let's get Chalking!

 


Calling introverts and extroverts alike! Club Couture™ is here for you! The mix of fonts, florals, and sentiments in the new February Club Couture Transfer can be customized to your liking whether your guests are welcome or just welcomish. February’s shipment includes Guava, Storm, and Pesto Chalkology® Paste Singles for a friendly and inviting (or semi-inviting) creation.

Ready to start this months creation? Follow along!
This February’s shipment includes Guava, Storm, and Pesto Chalkology® Paste Singles. 

Supplies Included

Club Couture Chalk Transfer® designWelcomish 

Chalkology® Paste Singles: Guava, Pesto, Storm

Additional supplies 

-House Box Frame (9" × 12")

-Color Trays

-Small Squeegee

-Detail Tool

-Fuzzing Cloth

-Quick Dry Tool


Color and Placement Suggestions

Storm: sentiment 
Pesto: greenery 
Guava: flowers

Follow these instructions to complete this project:

  1. Cut along the provided lines in order to separate the individual Transfer elements.

  2. Knead your Chalkology Paste Singles. Cut the paste singles open and squeeze the desired amount of paste onto a Color Tray, using a new tray for each color.

  3. Remove the Transfer Backer Sheet from the “Welcome” element, and “fuzz” the Transfer. Center the Transfer on your House Box Frame; smooth it out to ensure that it has properly adhered and there are no bubbles or wrinkles.

  4. Use your squeegee to generously apply paste over the Transfer (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”). Clear off excess paste with your squeegee and scrape it back into the tray. The more excess paste you remove, the better your end product will be.

  5. Before the paste dries, remove the Transfer from the surface. To prevent any stretching in the Transfer, peel from two corners instead of peeling diagonally.

  6. Use a Quick Dry Tool to expedite the drying process, before working on subsequent areas of the surface. Once dry, chalk the remaining elements of the Transfer onto your House Box Frame, repeating steps 3–5 as necessary.

  7. Immediately clean your Transfer elements with cool water
    (do not let them soak). Dry the Transfer elements flat with the sticky side up. Once dry, reapply the Transfer Backer Sheets and store flat.

  8. Display your finished product at home and greet guests with this fun and frank sentiment!

All of me loves all of you! //Time to chalk // Valentines Day Crafts

I love creating for Valentines Day with all the pinks and reds! Pink is one of my favorite colors so I use it the most during Valentines Day. 

Come along with me while I create this Chalk Craft- All of me loves all of you! 

Supplies Needed

1 Surface -Couture Boutique® Board & Base 

2 Small Squeegees

2 Stir Sticks

1 Fuzzing Cloth

1 Jar of Black Velvet Chalk Paste

1 Jar of Raspberry Sorbet Chalk Paste


Step 1: Get all your supplies together and ready. 

Step 2: Remove your transfer from the backing and fuzz your transfer well. You don't want it too sticky or it will be really hard to remove from the surface and may stretch it out. 


Step 3: Place the transfer on the surface in the position that you want it. 

Step 4: Open up for you chalk Pastes and give them a good stir. If they are a little thick or dry, this is a good time to add a little distilled water. 


Step 5: I typically work from top to bottom, so I started with the Black Velvet Chalk Paste for everything except for the work LOVES. 


Step 6: Now I am going in with the Raspberry Sorbet Chalk Paste for the word LOVES. Since this is a smaller transfer, I am chalking all of it without lifting and drying it. 


Step 7: Time to remove the transfer. Pull transfer from the top down to prevent it from stretching it out. 

Step 8: Time to clean all your items! Clean the transfer first with cold water and a Board Eraser. Lay out the transfer to dry upside down.
