  • ¼ cup measuring cup

  1. Grate one large piece of chalk on the cheese grater into your bowl to form a powder
  2. Once the powder is formed, add ¼ cup of room temperature water to the powder
  3. Mix well with the paintbrush
  4. If mixture is too runny for your liking, you can add additional chalk shavings- it all depends on the consistency you want
  5. Mix the paint mixture again with the brush side of the paint brush to make sure there are no more lumps in the paint
  6. Lastly, go onto your sidewalk and paint! Make sure you have permission before you do it.
