Child with Sailboat
Hoorah! I finally did it.
I was so hesitant and actually nervous to do a chalkboard drawing. Yet, with a little effort and some time, it was actually very simple. I worked on this slowly over a number of nights and even fine tuned it over the weeks. (Every time I would stop and look at it.)
My first hesitation had to do with the chalk itself. I was very worried that I needed 'special chalk' which I finally did order, but after having already done the majority of the drawing. So, that being said, let me say what I think of the different chalks. I began with some jumbo sidewalk chalk from crayola, that I happened to have in nearly every color. In fact, most of this drawing is done with that chalk. I added some details with some other colors that I had from Ikea. Then, my Mercurius chalk arrived:
You can get this at a number of internet retailers, including oompah toys.
It definitely does have some very rich colors that I have yet to see elsewhere, but, if you are on a tight budget you really can skip this item and go with the other chalks.
