What Is Chalk Paste?
It’s a thick paste about the consistency of yogurt or sour cream which makes it great for adhesive reusable stencils. It dries within minutes reducing the risk of smudging or smearing your craft projects. It’s specially formulated to provide a smooth and consistent application.

What If My Chalk Couture Paste Becomes Dry In The Jar?
Our Chalk Paste contains a humectant, which helps to keep your paste from completely drying out. If your paste becomes dry, you can add a small amount of distilled water and mix it well. Add a few drops until you reach the correct consistency (like sour cream). If you still need a little help after you add the water, put it in the microwave for 15-sec intervals to help it smooth back out.
What Surfaces Is Chalk Paste safe on?
Chalkology™ Paste is safe to use and remove from most non-porous surfaces, such as chalkboards, wood, glass, paper, mirror, kitchenware, and metal. The paste can also be used on porous surfaces such as unfinished wood or paper, but only as a permanent design. We recommend testing an inconspicuous spot prior to applying Chalkology™ Paste to any surface. Paste colors can interact with certain surfaces and finishes and cause color staining, or “color echo,” after a design is removed.
How To Use Chalk Paste?
Chalk paste is used instead of paint to apply a Chalk Couture stencil design (ie Chalk Couture transfer design).

Will Any Of The Colors Stain My Surfaces?
I recommend testing any surface before you apply the paste. Darker paste colors have higher amounts of pigment (ie. black and red), and are more likely to stain porous surfaces. Chalk Couture Board Erasers, disinfecting wipes, and soap with water help remove the paste; however, a “color echo” may remain. A “color echo” may be more pronounced the longer it has been on a surface or exposed to light. If you do get a “color echo” try using a board eraser to remove the echo.
Can You Use Chalk Couture Paste On Fabric?
Yes & No. The Chalk Couture paste can be used on fabrics. However, it will wash off once it is wet. You will need to use Chalk Couture ink to create a permanent design. Learn more about when to use chalkology paste vs ink.
