instructions

  1. Tape off about a 1” strip on the bottom of your sign’s frame. Fill it in with your favorite color from the PROMOABI kit. Let dry.
  2. Continue this process by placing your tape right up against your painted line until you have three crisp painted lines. Make sure to allow the paint to fully dry before placing a strip of tape on top of it.
  3. Paint the inside of your framed sign with Chalkboard Paint and let dry.
  4. Once your Chalkboard Paint is totally dry, prime the chalkboard by rubbing white chalk on the entirety of your chalkboard. Wipe off the chalk with a paper towel or rag.
