Since studying Typography at university in 2010, I have been doing A LOT of chalk lettering art. Over the years I have experimented with quite a few different techniques ranging from digital chalk lettering on my tablet to floor-to-ceiling chalkboard walls.
I have been asked many times about how I take my chalk artwork to a large scale wall. I do it free-hand and don’t use a projector. This process of chalkboard art and lettering is not hard, but does take some planning.
So here is a simple step by step tutorial that shows you how to draw your chalkboard artwork on a wall when you don’t have access to a projector. It’s cheap and easy. Enjoy!
If you’ve never done a chalk mural before and are not feeling confident, just give it a go and learn from your mistakes. Worst case scenario, you just paint the wall back to black! This is the best way to learn. Each chalk mural you create, you will get better.
Thanks for watching!
