Project Instructions

Step 1 Apply at least two coats of chalkboard paint to plaque. Allow plaque to completely dry between coats.

Step 2 Using a ruler and pencil draw a horizontal line ½" from the top of the plaque.

Step 3 Draw another horizontal line ½" below the first line you drew.

Step 4 Draw six arrows, using the first line from the top as the center point. Arrows should be about 1½" apart.

Step 5 Measure 2" from the bottom of the plaque and draw a horizontal line with your pencil.

Step 6 Using your paint pen, trace over the first two lines you drew in pencil.

Step 7 Draw over the last horizontal line, leaving about ¼" space at each end.

Step 8 Measure three inches in on the line you just finished and make a vertical line stopping about ¼" space from the bottom. Repeat once.

Step 9 Write the words DATE, SCENE, and TAKE over the three sections you just created.

Step 10 Color in the space between arrows 1 & 2, 3 & 4, and 5 & 6.

Step 11 Let paint dry completely.

Step 12 To condition the paint lightly, rub chalk over entire surface.

Step 13 Clean chalkboard finish with dry eraser or damp towel.

Craft Notes

Your project will be done on the back (on beveled) side of the plaque.
