How to Activate Chalk Markers

Most felt-tip markers come ready to use. However, your markers need to be activated to get the ink inside them flowing. To do this, you need to follow a simple process: shake, pump, and draw! Here’s how to use liquid chalk for the first time:

  • Shake the marker with the cap on. Make sure it’s pointing upright.
  • Press the nib on a test surface and pump until the ink flows.
  • Draw with your marker! If you need more ink, just press the nib again.

  • Here’s a detailed video tutorial to help you get your chalk markers started.
