Side Walk Puffy Paint

Side Walk Puffy Paint

Make liquid chalk that has raised edges like puffy paint and strong enough to hold designs longer than regular chalk.

 

 

*Warning*  – if you have a brand new or a lightly colored driveway this has the potential to stain the driveway !

 

 

This makes enough for one bottle –

use it all in one sitting because it is not intended to keep for longer

 

 

 

Materials:

 

Flour (1 cup)

 

Water (1 cup)

 

Dish-soap (1 tbsp)

 

Cheese Grater

 

Chalk (if you don’t have any, use food coloring, or washable paints)

 

Whisk (or something to mix everything)

 

Container (squeeze bottle works best but I used a zip-lock bag)

 

 

 

Step one: Combine flour and water in a bowl
make sure there are no lumps left

 

 

 

Step two : Use the fine side of cheese grater to turn your chalk into powder.
(I used up my scraps of left over blue chalk but if you’re using a brand new piece, grate about half)

 

 

 

Step three: Add the dish soap and mix everything into the bowl

 

 

 

Step four: Pour into squeeze bottle or ziplock bag

 

Step five: paint on you drive way! (Wash away with a hose after painting for a quick removal – or let sit in the sun and dry for longer lasting patterns )

 

 

*the latter may require stronger removal like power washing or time to fade
