This job was my latest challenge. A favorite client had the walls of one of his rooms painted with chalkboard paint and requested I create lettering in chalk that looked like type with some script added. Wow! First of all, writing with actual chalk? I typically use chalkboard markers which don't leave chalk dust and have a consistent, refined tip. Chalk is a very crude tool and the tip continually wears down, gets blunt and uneven. Chalk also breaks easily. The capital letters here are about 9 inches tall with the word PANTRY over 2 feet in length. I don't know how I pulled it off, but here it is after 2 hours of work!
