I loooooove these. They add a nice dimension, different from regular chalk. Depending on the look you want, they can also cover chipboard "solo".
Just note. When they say CREAM, they mean it. Don't go smooshing the 'lil pompom into it, like you do with regular chalk. It will squish.
Not that I did that, or anything...
These chalks are not only beautiful but are rich in color. They apply smoothly and evenly and don't transfer after application. These are terrific for use with stencils and add such rich color to your artwork.
I love the metallic creme chalks from Pebbles. They go on product like butter and leave an even, smooth finish with just a touch of sheen. Perfect for coloring chipboard.
I enjoy using the I Kandee cream chalks. The colors are beautiful and blend well with the colors I use on my pages. They are easy to apply and I love the shimmer. The only issue I have is with the applicator, and it goes for the other sets as well: the pom poms are not easy to control. I would much rather have the set include an equal number of disposable applicators of better quality (I'd pay more for them) than the clip because the poms just roll around and fall off. Perhaps I am doing something wrong?
Overall though, I love the product!
These colors are gorgeous, but the texture is very creamy and does not apply like a normal chalk. The effect I got was more similar to something like oil pastels. They do set as applied; I blotted my work with clean paper and a brayer, and virtually none of the "chalk" transferred to the paper.
One other tip - I left the set in the sun and the "chalks" melted. I put them in the fridge to resolidify them and they were fine, but I'm careful to store them in a cool place.
