Before you start, here’s how to activate the edding gloss paint marker: Shake the marker firmly with the cap still on. Place the nib on a piece of scrap paper and carefully pump it up and down a few times until ink appears in the nib. Try out the marker with a few strokes on the test paper. And don’t forget to always replace the cap securely after use.
First, decide which dips you want to arrange on your board. It’s important not to place them too close together, otherwise there won’t be enough space for the writing. After activating the chalk marker, in front of each bowl write down what it contains.
The liquid chalk can be wiped off at any time without problem, so you can introduce variety to your dips and sides. Simply wipe off the old label of an empty dish and swap it for something else!
