I have a friend that owns a restaurant. I gave them the idea to use chalkboards for kids menus and they liked it. Only problem is now, is that I can’t figure out how to do it. Red Robin has this for their kids menus but I can’t figure out how to get a white non-removable strip on it.
I’ve tried chalkboard paint on draftboard, jpplus chalkboard acrylic and actual chalkboards but each one has it’s own drawback. Paint bleeds past the engraved sections. I could leave it bare, but then if they get wet, the wood will expand.
My latest idea is to do a white paint under the chalkboard paint and try to etch the chalkboard paint off. Not too sure that this will actually work though.
Anyone have any thoughts or anything?
