How to Season a Chalkboard

Seasoning your Chalkboard is very important to do before you use your new chalkboard or one you have just made. Otherwise, the first words or pictures you draw on your board will get "burned" into the board.

1. The first step to seasoning your chalkboard is to take a piece of chalk and and run it vertically along the entire board covering the whole surface.

2. Next run it horizontally along the entire chalkboard.

3. Afterwards you can erase the chalkboard with an eraser or a paper towel. If you prefer a newer looking board use a wet cloth.

4. Enjoy! Your new Chalkboard is ready to use!
