Chalkola Chalk markers are the perfect media if you like to play with light. You’ll need
- A flashlight
- 3 colors of chalk markers
- Wide clear packing tape.
Time to make our black light !!
You will also need a sheet of plastic that you can cut with scissors, and a vase full of water.
The first step is to prepare your light source. Use a strip of packing tape to cover the lens of the flashlight.
Choose a color you like and apply it to the tape covering the lens.
Repeat two more times using two other colors.
In the video our artist used dark blue, purple, and light blue.
Now you will need two colors of chalk markers for the next step.
Now it’s time to use your sheet of plastic. Think of some inspirational words and phrases. You might like something such as “dream big”, “confidence”, “love big”, or similar wording that reinforces a positive attitude.
Using neon chalk markers, write those words on the plastic.
When you are done, cut the plastic so that each word or short phrase is on a separate strip.
Drop the strips of plastic into the vase full of water.
Turn off or dim the room lighting and turn on the flashlight while you swirl the water in the vase.
The neon colors will be beautiful as the strips swirl in the water and the light from the colored lens will really make the color pop.
You’ll notice that occasionally you’ll be able to make out a word as it passes, making this a relaxing and inspirational artistic creation. Also check out : Making a Cute Panda Mug with Chalk Markers
