This week The Art Lady is joined by Patty French and Heath Buckmaster to provide some quick and easy tips to make your chalk art more vibrant and last longer. All you need is a spray bottle of water, a paintbrush, and sidewalk chalk or pastel chalk (you can find both of these online or in retail stores).
Chalk Art Tips
Spray the sidewalk first so the pavement is damp
Scribble on the chalk (don’t use too much)
Dip a paintbrush in water and paint the chalk into the shape or design you want
Use tape to mask off areas or create shapes, then pull the tape when the chalk is dry
This method makes the chalk last longer, makes colors brighter, and makes your art more durable to walking over and even a light rainstorm.
Parents are having fun with chalk, not just for art but for outdoor games with kids! WATCH: Outdoor Chutes and Ladders by Dad Absurdum.
