Blending chalks are just that, chalks that are blendable. Chalks can be used on a variety of surfaces, including polymer clay. Their color can be easily applied with a brush, sponge tip applicator, or even cotton swabs.
Blending chalks will cling onto the surface of the clay and add a very nice & subtle wash of color, in the same way that soft pastels can do for polymer clay. While blending chalks are not a permanent color solution for polymer clay, once a piece is sealed the color will be steadfast. Because these chalks tend to be pigment rich, they are easily blendable with buildable color properties that I absolutely love.
Because I make whimsical figurines, blending chalks are an everyday work-horse for me. In fact, my blending chalks are used so much that they sit right next to my work surface.
Blending chalks can be easily and quickly applied to polymer clay. There are many ways to use them, but here are some of my favorite ways:
For those of you who have joined me here on my blog before, you have likely seen a picture of my Inkadinkado Blending Chalk Palette. It’s one of my favorite clay additives. I have ONE soft bristled brush that I use for nothing but these. This set does not get favorable reviews on Amazon. I feel this is because people are expecting to use them on paper crafting. Please understand that these chalks are extremely hard. These are not soft chalks. To “start” use my colors, I scratched the surface with my needle tool and then used the brush. This allowed my brush to very easily pick up color. Please know that once you break the surface of the chalk, these blending chalks are very highly pigmented! But perhaps my favorite aspect of these chalks are that unlike other chalks, these are buildable. With one soft swipe of your brush you can achieve soft & subtle color. With multiple brush strokes, the color builds & intensifies becoming beautiful and vibrant.
