What is Chalk Couture?
Chalk Couture is a crafting trend that involves the use of chalk paste and self adhesive stencils, called transfers, to create custom designs on a variety of surfaces. Chalk paste is a water-soluble medium that can be used on surfaces such as glass, metal, plastic, fabric, and more. Transfers are adhesive stencils that can be used to create precise designs with chalk paste, Chalk Couture Ink, and glass etching. The transfers can be reused multiple times and come in various designs and sizes. The adhesive stencil saves you time and provides a cleaner design for your craft projects.
