Take your frame apart and empty the Instant Blackboard kit. Measure the blackboard strip up to ensure that you have enough to fit in your frame.

Step 2: Stick on your Blackboard

Cover the display card (that comes with the frame) with the blackboard. Remove the backing slowly and make sure there are no air bubbles.

Step 3: Draw!

Start drawing on and writing on your blackboard to design your New Years Resolutions! Mark it out with the white charcoal and then go over the top with th bright colours of the soft pastels! Pastels are great for blending and making sections stand out.

Step 4: Spray with Fixative!

To make sure that your resolutions don’t rub off easily, spray the board with a fixative to secure it! Try our Micador For Artists Fixative. Once dry, put your frame over the blackboard and hang it on a wall!
