    I have these tubes of paint for whiteboards... Like 6 different colors. I think I got from Really Good Stuff or someplace a few years back. I want to use it on my chalkboard... and I'm wondering if anyone has done that... I am testing it today in a little area... and it does wash off.. but I'm worried that if I leave it on (I want to use it to create a calendar on the blackboard) it will seep in or something... and leave a stain...

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    I've seen liquid chalk that you could use on chalkboards.

    Could you put up a small one that you buy somewhere else in the room so you don't have to worry if it does stain?

    I've only used the whiteboard paint on whiteboards, so I don't know how the paint will react to chalkboards.

    What about buying some showerboard from your local hardware store and using that?

    Well, I put it on the chalkboard (man it looks cool!) I'll try washing off a section tomorrow, and a section next week to see how it goes. I made this huge calendar to help my kids see the "big picture"

    I might have to look into the liquid chalk... The whole point is that I want something that will stay on if I erase the regular chalk. Hopefully I won't be in trouble!
