Our team thought it would be the appropriate time to do a roundup of questions and answers, plus also a few tips on how to take care of the CHALK SLOO figure.
Why does my drawing/writing left a mark on the CHALK SLOO figure even after wiping it with wet/or dry cloth?
CHALK SLOO has the same surface as a normal chalkboard, and chalkboards are porous, so if you don't prime it you are at risk for your first drawing to be there permanently. So remember to spend 10 to 15 minutes to prime your CHALK SLOO
How do I prime the CHALK SLOO?
Lay a piece of chalk on its side and cover the entire SLOO figure liberally with the chalk included in the box. Rub it in with a dry cloth and then erase and you are ready to go. We have added an option to prime it for our customers before it is dispatched from our workshop.
Do I have to repeat the priming process every time before I draw?
The CHALK SLOO only needs to be primed once. Once primed, you can wipe your drawing with a slightly damp cloth and once dried you can repeatedly draw on it without priming again.
There is an option in the store for CHALK SLOO to be primed for me or not, what do I choose?
If you choose NO in the option for the CHALK SLOO , you receive it unprimed, this is how it looks like.
You will need to prime it yourself if you plan to draw on it to maintain it better. If you don’t plan to draw on it (why not!?) you can leave it as it is.
If you choose YES in the option, you will receive the CHALK SLOO like this .
All you need to do is to wipe it with dry or slight damp cloth and it will look like this again.
but in fact the porous surface is now ready to draw and will lessen the chance of leaving a mark on the figure. We hope to save you 10 to 15 minutes of time and be able to draw as soon as you receive it.
I prefer the CHALK SLOO to be it is original BLACK color, priming it will make it look cloudy, should I not prime it?
After priming, just remove the chalk dust/marks with a slight damp cloth and it will return back to its original dark black hue. So, don’t worry!
What can I use to draw on the CHALK SLOO ?
The idea of the CHALK SLOO is like a blackboard, you can draw, wipe and draw again. Besides the chalk pack that is included in your package box, you can also use chalk gel pens available for sale in some specialty stationery shops. We would recommend using only chalk sticks or chalk gel markers. There are chalkboard markers which you can use, but since they are markers and the pigment might leave a faint mark on the figure after drawing, so be warned!
