Inking on Chalk Couture’s Burlap Board
Burlap is one of my all time favorite crafting mediums. Need a cute bow for your sign? Add a burlap ribbon! Making your own holiday wreath? Use some burlap! Not only is it versatile, and something you likely have laying around in your craft box, but it is BEAUTIFUL.
In case you haven’t noticed I’m a big fan. So I when Chalk Couture dropped this burlap board during our last launch, I knew I HAD to get my hands on it.
This surface was so easy to craft with. For this particular DIY project, I decided to use our ink. Ink is a permanent option when chalking on fabric. With a burlap sign that won’t be washed or wet at any point, I could have used the paste just as well.
I would typically use paste on a decorative sign but I wanted to see how ink would come out on burlap. Note: I did have to allow the ink to dry then I ironed on a low heat setting for 8 minutes with parchment paper between the design and the iron.
(By heat setting it this way, I was able to skip the step of sealing it with a poly spray)
I loved the end result of this particular piece and will definitely be using this surface in future projects! Check out how quick and simple it was to do…
