We asked our friend Jane Bush (of Southpaw Creative Arts) to post a review on Chalkola's Premium Wet Wipe Markers. Jane is a self-taught illustrator, artist, and concert/band photographer with a degree on Visual Communications. She enjoys creating fun reviews on new art products, technique tutorials, and videos about reaching inward as an artist. Let's see how Jane enjoyed trying out Chalkola Chalk Markers for the first time!
Jane used all three types of Chalkola Chalk Markers for her project–a sign on chalkboard. She was pleasantly surprised by the variety of sizes and colors included in the Chalkola products package, and liked the idea of having the jumbo, regular, and metallic markers to choose from. Jane used regular chalkboard for her project. She started with the green Platinum Series Marker with the 3-in-1 chisel tip, and immediately liked the vibrant color and control on line thickness that it offered.
The chisel tip makes interesting letters and draws the viewers’ attention with the contrast of thin, thick, and medium. Jane was somewhat disappointed about the color seeping into the chalkboard but this wouldn't have happened with a non-porous chalkboard surface. She was amazed, though, that the chalk markers didn’t smudge or fade while the sign was in use. Jane also appreciated how she could easily erase her work even after it's dry. All she needed was a damp cloth, and the chalk marker wipes right off! The Platinum Series Markers hold enough ink for any project. The 3-in-1 chisel tip makes thin, medium, or bold lines, allowing the artist more versatility. Jane prefers the Platinum Series because of the unique nib on the marker. Her finished project is a sign that really stands out and attracts attention. The colors are bright and the pens are easy to work with. All in all, Jane loves Chalkola Chalk Markers!
