Our magnetic chalkboards are made with professional grade galvanized steel for the strongest possible magnetic strength. We hand apply a chalkboard vinyl surface to allow the use of regular chalk as well as chalk ink markers. If specially requested at checkout, we will create your chalkboard with chalkboard paint for a more traditional chalkboard surface look.
Hi CJ – I wrote this post with no intention to devalue your art.I am in awe of your talent and others like you – who are true chalkboard artists. What you do is truly amazing and harder than any other type of art in my opinion, as you have to be precise and like you stated – have a very fluid hand, plus a sharp eye to work on such large scale projects while keeping everything in scale and the right perspective. I create chalkboards for myself on a small scale, just like I sew curtains, paint furniture, and try to learn the best way to do things to decorate my home. I can only wish I could draw like you. I love chalkboards and chalkboard art – there is just something so elegant and simple about them that attracts me to them. It is for this reason that I wanted to find out as much as I could about the art and how I could create some in my own style. Please know that you are a huge inspiration to all of us who do not have the natural talent to create amazing quality works of art with chalk.
