Chalk Couture? What is that?
Do you love those crafty paint parties but are running out of room to put all of your creations? Well, Shawne Frederick with Chalk Couture is coming to your rescue! This versatile way to create art can create permanent art or a way to switch it up when you want. No more worrying about where to put your next creation – and no need for artistic ability! The one-of-a-kind stencils do your job for you and are reusable up to twenty times. You can choose whether to use the chalk paste if you want to save space and make a fresh design for each season or go with ink if you want something more permanent.
Shawne discovered Chalk Couture a year ago after she had been creating her own one-use stencils manually.
What used to take her hours and hours now takes minutes. For a busy mom of three boys all heavily involved in baseball, time is a precious commodity. The Eagle River High School baseball booster president runs her Chalk Couture business alongside her craft business, This Moms Creations. Her work for both is featured at Cobb Market, where she offers monthly Chalk Couture classes.
The Chalk Couture process is so easy, all ages can participate.
Pick one of the professionally designed, detailed stencils, then your chalk or ink color and a surface to apply it to. Stick the stencil on, apply the chalk smoothly with the magical squeegee and pull off the stencil. With the chalk, you can pull off immediately and with ink simply apply heat like a hairdryer or place in the oven. The possibilities are endless! Mugs, wine glasses, t-shirts, wood signs, ornaments – you name it! Want to give it a try, but a little hesitant to do it on your own? Shawne does make and take parties! Or you can shop from the comfort of your own home. Chalk Couture has a new catalog every six months and additional seasonal design releases in between. New colors and phrases keep up with the latest trends.
