Have you heard of Chalk Couture? It's a line of reusable adhesive transfers, chalk paste and inks for making just about anything! Signs, wall art, cards, tees, bags, etc!

I recently tried this product for the first time and was pleased with how quick and easy it is to use!

I wanted to make a cute sign for my summer mantle (which I'll be sharing in a few weeks) and the saying, "Today is a good day for a good day" seemed perfect.

I received some samples in the mail (thanks Heather!) and set to work.

HOW TO

Whenever I make signs, I like to spend some time sanding the board down really well. Sides, edges, front and back. No one likes splinters! It only takes a few minutes using a palm sander. I use this one; it's lightweight, available in a cordless version, and has replaceable sandpaper pads.

I painted my board with two coats of Dixie Belle Mineral Paint in Savannah Mist...the same color I used for this flower pot makeover. Oddly enough, it looks gray in this project!

The Chalk Couture stencils are very thin and sticky but are washable and reusable, which I love! I had a little trouble getting the stencil centered on my painted board...they suggest pouncing a lint free cloth on the sticky part of the stencil to remove some of the stickiness. This definitely helped!

Next, I used the flexible rubber squeegee to scoop out a little Chalkology Paste (it's like thick chalk paint) directly onto my project.

Using the squeegee, I spread a thin and even coat across the stencil. The excess paste went right back into the pot for another project. Here's a little video to show you how easy it is. Sorry that I don't show the removal of the stencil...it took two hands to peel it up!


It's really that easy! Center the stencil, spread the paste, peel up the stencil!

The results are a great looking sign with absolutely no bleed-through!

I found this product quick and easy to use! I'm looking forward to trying the Couture Ink with the same stencil...I'll probably make a tee. The paste and inks are available in a wide variety of colors, and there are oodles of stencils to choose from!

  1. Transfers not stencils... I'm sorry it just bugs me when people call them stencils.
