  • The antique look of the pretty board is achieved with the Marabu Chalky Chic chalk paints in combination with the Crackle Medium. The text printed out on a laser printer is transferred with the Transfer Medium.

How it is done:

  • Prepare the board so it is free from grease and dust. Apply a full surface layer in Light Blue with a brush or roller and leave to dry for 30 minutes.
  • Spread the Crackle Medium evenly over the surface and again leave to dry or use a hair dryer.
  • Now apply a second coat of paint. The paint should be applied in one go as the effect appears immediately. Leave to dry.
  • Print out the desired text on a laser printer as a mirror image. Apply a generous layer of the Transfer Medium to the desired position on the board and to the printout, place the text on the board with the printed side down and smooth. Wipe off any excess Transfer Medium. Leave to dry for 2 hours or dry with a hair dryer for 8 minutes. Moisten the laser printout with a sponge until the paper is soaked. Carefully rub off the wet paper until all paper layers have been removed. Now seal the transferred text on the board with Matt Varnish or Transfer Medium.
