Ever want to write or draw on a dark piece of paper without having to add a white paper mat? The trusty Chalk Marker is your answer! It works on paper and most non-porous surfaces, and, much like the name implies, the results are vibrant, opaque, and chalk-like.

As most of you know, we’re of the memory keeping variety at Close To My Heart and it is our aim to preserve things forever and always, therefore this Chalk Marker is permanent, archival, and lightfast. It is not filled with liquid chalk and will not wipe off (so do not use it on an actual chalkboard unless you want permanent results! 😉 ).

The intention of the Chalk Marker is for it to mimic the appearance of written chalk. It writes in a thin white line and the color of paper that the ink is being used on will show through a little bit, as you can see here:

The ink is also designed to build on itself as you layer it. The more coats you apply the more vivid and rich the ink will appear.

Unlike most other markers, the Chalk Marker needs to be stored horizontally for best results. The ink inside is a special blend that, if the marker is stored upright, will shift to the end pointing down and it will take a good while for it to shift back to where it needs to be. Storing this marker horizontally will help you get the steady flow of ink to the tip that is necessary to achieve a smooth application.
