Thanks matildasmum - sounds like a really useful book.

I am currently enjoying chalks and the other day I used them wet for the first time to paint a stamped image. I was really pleased with the results. Then last night I made a card on the theme of the solar system and used chalks to shade the planets. I woke up early this morning reminding myself to seal the chalk with cheap hairspray!! afro

I don't use my fingers, so no Very Happy Most tins of chalks come with an applicator with little cotton balls to apply it with, or you could use eye shadow applicators.

Your card sounds amazing Dee, very different Very Happy I've never painted with wet chalk... something new to try Very Happy

I like the sound of them... just coz they sound cute Very Happy Never seen them though. I do like the Chizzel it coz of the different ends you can put on it (it has a good brush end for applying chalks)
