You have a crafty person or a very organized person to a gift for, may I suggest the Liquid Chalkers by Paper and Twine.
Oh my goodness, I am in love with the Liquid Chalkers from Paper and Twine. From reminders to making gifts, I have found so many uses for the chalk markers.
When you first get them, you will have to make sure the paint is in the tip. It takes less than a minute, but you will want to shake and then press the tip firmly on something until the tip is soaked in the liquid chalk.
Here is what the tip looks like when it’s almost ready to use. I only had to press it down a few more times to get it ready to go.
For my Nana’s birthday, I used the Liquid Chalkers from Paper and Twine to decorate a chalkboard mug. I had read not to use the Liquid Chalkers on surfaces that had been painted with chalkboard paint, but I tested this first in an area on the bottom of the mug, let it dry for 24 hours and then erased it. It worked perfect, and to go along with the gift, I gave my Nana some Liquid Markers to play with too. She loved them.
Goose has a table that is an enamel painted metal (I think, I know it’s a metal top, but I don’t know exactly what the paint is). We’ve had a blast playing with the markers on the top of that. We just keep a rag with us, and erase when we are done.
One use I’ve found is to write reminders for myself. Here I wrote on the mirror to remember to take my medication. I left it up there until I was done with the medication and then used Windex to wipe it off. Nothing was left! I was very impressed!
A few other uses I’ve found is a grocery list on my refrigerator, and I made traceable letters for Goose and then covered the paper with clear contact paper (that has made a very good learning tool).
The only thing I do not like about the Liquid Chalkers is the smell! They have a very strong marker smell, and we can only use them for about 5 min at a time. Other than that, the markers are wonderful!
Overall, I love the Liquid Chalkers from Paper and Twine. I would definitely recommend them if you have a crafty project you would like to do, or if you would like to use something other than dry erase markers.
If you are interested in purchasing some Liquid Chalkers, you can find them on Amazon or on Liquid Chalker’s website.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
