Water-based acrylic paint markers, sometimes called “chalk markers” are widely used in schools for decorating school posters, making painted window art, and of course- for use on chalkboards!

These markers will remain permanent on surfaces like paper & wood. For marking on hard surfaces, if you want your marks to wash off with plain water, choose a “Wet-Erase” marker like the Posterman Wet-Wipe, Zig Illumigraph, or Marvy Bistro. Other “Water-proof” markers will need to be cleaned off glass/chalkboards with an ammonia-based surface/window cleaner.

Chalkboard Note: The more “porous” your chalkboard surface is (where it has little holes in the surface that make it more absorbent) the more likely some colors may stick and leave a faint mark after being cleaned off (many homemade chalkboards tend to be more like this). Always test for “ghosting” of the ink in a small space first to see how well it cleans off.

*Zig Posterman: Featuring the jumbo 30mm and 50mm Biggie tips, Posterman can handle large lettering or coloring big spaces quickly and easily. Other tip shapes & sizes are available too, and a color selection that includes metallics and fluorescents.
