I just finished all my crafty wedding stuff. Whew! I have a couple of things that I have done with chalk. They look perfect. Trouble is, the wedding is in a another town and we will have to pack them up to take with us. I fear the chalk will rub, smudge and just look nasty. Then I will have to clean the surface and re-write, which I would rather not have to worry about. And I’d rather not use chalk board markers as I like the rustic look of the chalk.
Does anyone know of a way to make the chalk not rub? Could I spray it with hairspray or something? Any suggestions/ideas?

Yep– hairspray. It’s not a majic cure, but it’ll keep it from coming off as easily.

I would hairspray and then wrap in tissue paper. Do a test run… Throw a few test pieces in the car while your running errands and see how it comes out at the end of the day.

Hairspray will work in a pinch. There are also fixative sprays that they sell at craft/art supply stores that will help with the smudging.

You could also try fixative. You can get it at Michael’s or any art supply store. I don’t know if hairspray would be sticky or leave a sort of “spray” pattern on the board?
