To start chalking, there is a very small list of basic supplies. It really is one of the easiest crafts to start.
All you need is a surface, chalk paste, squeegee and transfer. If you find you are chalking a lot, there is another list of tools that you will find useful, but that is another post. (I’ll link it when I get it posted, lol)
You can chalk on almost any surface but some surfaces need treatment before you chalk. Chalk Couture boutique surfaces need no treatment before chalking, come in a variety of sizes and are very versatile. I recommend starting with the Board & Base or one of the Greyson boards. The Board & Base is particularly versatile, displaying both horizontal and vertical in the stand. You can also chalk or paint the stand, chalk both sides of the board surface and it fits right inside the Box Frame as well. The Greyson boards are a great price point to start with a larger, more robust frame. Both can be washed and redesigned repeatedly and easily to change up your décor.
There are several squeegee options as well. The first one I recommend you get is the small squeegee. All of the squeegees are made for different purposes and the small squeegee is the most used. It is a great starting squeegee because of its versatility.
Paste and transfers are where you can explore your creativity. At the start, I always recommend getting at least 1 neutral colour paste and at least one transfer that has multiple design elements. Design elements on transfers are usually cut apart so they can be used in many ways, in many designs. Once you’ve made your choices, you are ready to start chalking. Fair warning, it can be addicting!
