Here’s how to create a new decorative chalkboard step-by-step:
Cut the d-c-fix® chalkboard foil to length and peel off the backing paper from the foil.
Now position the chalkboard foil at the edge of the wooden board.
Smooth down the foil with the scraper. The best approach is to work your way along the wooden board, hand width by hand width.
After applying the adhesive foil, cut off any excess at the edges of the wooden panel with the utility knife.
Use a piece of chalk or a chalk marker to write your Christmas greetings on the chalkboard foil and decorate it with symbols and drawings.
Small air pockets can form, especially when covering larger surfaces – such as the top and side surfaces here. You can puncture these bubbles with a fine needle and then carefully smooth them out with the squeegee.
