Chalk Painting


Ever since the very first time O got her hands on sidewalk chalk, she's been making chalk powder.
She kept busy last summer scraping giant chunks of chalks into the side of an old spice tin and remained devoted to her task. This Spring, she diligently returned to her work....but this year, we used it to make paint.

A rock was all that was needed to smash the chalk into dusty bits, before scraping the powder into muffin tin cups.



Baby C also loves chalk, but for very different reasons, so we had to work fast before our supplies were eaten!

Then we constructed a 'brush' from cedar branches and a bamboo garden stake.



The results were subtle splatters and strokes in all kinds of colours.
