  1. Use a 3/4” flat brush to basecoat the entire crate with Shimmering Silver. Rinse brush.
  2. Use the same brush with Electric Blue to basecoat the wooden plaque. Let dry completely, sand, and add another coat. Let dry completely. Rinse brush.
  3. Add a thin coat of Clear Chalkboard Coating on the plaque. (Follow the instructions on the Clear Chalkboard Coating package.)
  4. Use the sponge pouncers dipped separately in Scorching Yellow, Torrid Orange, Sizzling Pink, Fiery Red, and Electric Blue to dot randomly all over the crate. Repeat as needed.
  5. Use hot glue to attach the plaque to the front of the crate. Personalize with chalk.


Sanding in between the coats helps to create a smooth, even coat on the Clear Chalkboard Coating surface.
