If you have never tried chalk marker, you don't know what you are missing. I will warn you that they can be a bit addicting! I bought a small chalkboard that I decorate according to the season. I also use them to write on my mirrors and to use to decorate a window at church. They write so smoothly and the colors are bright. They will write on most non-porous surfaces. Make sure to test a small area first if you aren't sure how well it will write and wipe off. They go on wet but dry quickly.
Removing the chalk is easy. I prefer to use some wet wipes to remove most of the ink, first. I then use either a damp cloth or window cleaner, depending on what I am cleaning it off of. A magic eraser works well if anything can still be faintly seen. These wash off easily if any gets on your skin or clothing. Make sure your surface is completely dry before drawing or writing on it again.
If you've never used chalk markers, how to properly activate the markers are on the side of each marker as well as written on the back of the package. After using them, if you let them set for a couple of weeks, just shake well and pump the tip once or twice into a paper towel to make sure it is flowing well.
I love that this has gold and silver. These two colors are hard to find. I also like how fine I can draw or write with them using the edge of the chisel tip. I can also write broadly using the side of the tip. The tip can be turned around to a more rounded tip if your prefer. I really do love this brand of chalk markers. I highly recommend them.
I received these free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. I, in no way, guaranteed a positive review but tested these thoroughly and formed my own opinions.
