  • The mixture will start to thicken up as you add the paint – I have no idea why the paint addition make it thick, but it’s fun to watch
  • Once you see that the mixture is turning into a thick frosting consistency, then you are ready to shape the chalk
  • If you are using wax paper sheets, then just spread some chalk mixture onto the edge of the wax paper and roll it up
  • Or – pour into your molds
  • Let the chalk sit for about 24 hours – making sure it’s nice and dry before you unwrap it
