Mercurius Blackboard Pastel Chalk - Assorted Basic Colours, Box of 12
The smooth, soft chalk and strong colour pigments have always been recognised in Mercurius Blackboard Chalk. And the newly released 2024 range holds up to the reputation! Pastel-like in application, the colours have a high coverage and are easily blended on the board. And the pigments are 100% Natural!
A Handy Tip from Experienced Black Board Artists:
For a deep charcoal black, use high quality Willow Charcoal, to add colour accents use LYRA Polycrayon Soft Pastels available in packs of 12 or 24, for shading, the LYRA Polycrayon Grey Tones and for skin and nature tones, use the LYRA Polycrayon Brown Tones.
Excited about our new chalk - keep an eye out for the extended colour range coming later in 2024!
What makes Mercurius Chalk different?
Chalk is not an uncommon product, and will normally contain common ingredients including Calcium Carbonate, pigments, and fillers. Getting the right formula is what differentiates chalk!
This is why Mercurius has taken over 12 months to reformulate our chalk! Not all Calcium Carbonate is the same, and pigments come from a variety of sources - both natural and synthetic. Mercurius Chalk uses a high quality form of Calcium Carbonate with quality all natural pigments, limiting the need for additional fillers and creating all-natural chalk.
The result - a high quality, natural pigmented pastel chalk, answering to the demands of the blackboard artist and meeting all current worldwide safety certifications for child health and use in the classroom!
