As I mentioned in my post from CHA, both neon and chalkboards or black backgrounds are still all the rage. So of course, we’re going to need some chalky and/or neon markers, right? Today we are looking at the Crafty Crock Liquid Chalk Markers.
From the website:
Crafty Croc™ Liquid Chalk Markers offer a versatile solution for leaving your mark on almost any non-porous surface! Write with bold, fun colors on glass, ceramic, metal, mirrors, car windows, menu boards, chalkboard adhesive labels, chalkboard contact paper, plastic, advertising boards, light boards, glass under black light and more! (Of course you can write on card and other surfaces but if you want to erase (especially off of painted chalkboards), please, please, please test the marker on a small area first to ensure you can erase it successfully.
Whether you want to create fine text on a label or bold wide lines on a shop window, Crafty Croc™ chalk pens have got you covered. Each chalk pen has a Japanese manufactured reversible tip with a chisel point on one end and bullet (rounded) at the other, which won’t dry out when looked after and capped properly.
You and your children can use our water based liquid chalk pens with confidence knowing they are non-toxic and comply with all American and European manufacturing standards for craft and art supplies. They don’t emit any strong smells and are easy to clean up!
Let’s take a look at the colors:
I found the Crafty Crock Liquid Chalk Markers
to be very bright an vibrant. With the exception of the white, all were very opaque, too. No odors or smells were noted. (What a nice surprise.)
In the pack I received, there were 10 colors and 2 replacement nibs. While it’s not on the packaging, I saw on the website that you can actually remove and reverse the nibs so that you have both a bullet tip and a chisel tip in the same nib. It’s a bit messy to remove, but you’ve got it.
Let’s take a look at the samples:
And now the question- if and how/how well they erase!
These pens don’t lay claim to be erasable- just “liquid chalk”- but I thought you should know!
- Erases fully with a wet wipe on Contact Paper or PVC.
- Erases fully with wet wipe whiteboard (may cause staining over time.)
- Erases fully on signboard with tissue.
- Smudges/smears on paper, gesso’ed surfaces. (Could be sealed, though)
- Leaves a ghost imprint on painted chalkboard. Should be used for permanent designs only.
- I wouldn’t recommend erasability on non-porous surfaces.
I put together a little video overview for you as well.
