Liquid Chalkers by Paper&Twine

I had never used liquid chalk markers before so I was excited to get to try out Liquid Chalkers from Paper & Twine. Paper & Twine's platinum collection liquid chalkers are artist quality, use hyper pigmented ink and provide bright, beautiful colors with marker tips that don't dry out or crack. Liquid Chalkers were created by Louise Fox, a mother of three, with the help of her kids, skyrocket their family's creativity. Kids always come first and these Chalkers contain completely non-toxic ink meeting stringent EN71-3, ASTM 4963 and ASTM D4236 standards.

One thing that makes liquid chalk markers much better than chalk is they are dust free! Dust free means less of a mess to clean up. Liquid Chalkers can be used on any non-porous surface. Louise says her favorites are mirrors, glass, desks and metal. But remerber, it is important to note that anytime you use any brand of liquid chalk ink on a new surface, always ALWAYS test it first on a small inconspicuous section.

The first thing I did was try out the markers on a plain piece of white printer paper. The markers have to be shaken first before they can be used, but it doesn't say how long they must be shaken for. It takes a good 3-5 minutes per maker. So be prepared for sore shoulders before they are ready to be used. Once they are shaken, the colors are vibrant, and markers go on the paper smoothly. The only color I didn't try myself is the white. When I was done with them I gave them to my niece for her chalkboard dresser, and she loved them. She said they were great and she drew a very pretty flower and sun that her mom sent me a picture of. You can buy these for a great price on amazon, and they would make a great gift for yourself or any little artists in your life. Plus, they come with a 1 year money back guarantee. Even if the markers are empty at the end of the year, if you decide you don't like them, you get a full refund of the marker price and your shipping price. So, go buy a pack! 


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using in exchange for my honest review. I never recommend products i don't like and use personally.
