To Make Hair Chalk
dry colorant and kaolin together in a bowl big enough to stick both
arrowroot and water in a separate small
container, and microwave for 5 seconds. You do not want it
gummy, just slightly thickened. If it’s not gummy after 5 seconds, try
again on three second bursts.
witch hazel to the dry powders, and
hand mix together (while wearing gloves!). Once well mixed, add
arrowroot slurry. Really squish the mixture
together, you don’t want it crumbly, or wet, or bits of undispersed
clay. It should have texture just like kid's modeling clay. If it is
dry, spritz witch hazel over one spritz at a time until correct
consistency is reached.
Roll on a piece of parchment paper until you get the shape you like,
and allow to air dry overnight.
To Apply Hair Chalk
an old sheet or towel over the shoulders
of the person you’re applying the color to. Wet designated area of hair
desired to be chalked. I used a spray bottle of water.
Wearing gloves, apply the chalk to the wet
area by dragging it along the strands. Use your fingers to rub the
chalk into the hair really well.
Once you’ve reached the desired amount of coverage, comb through the
hair to evenly distribute the chalk.
Heat-set the chalk using either a blow-dryer, curling iron, or
straightener. A curling iron or straightener may not be the best idea
for those with sensitive hair. You can also straighten or curl the hair
after you blow-dry it.
Spray chalked hair with hair spray
so that it doesn't brush off onto clothing.
We used Electric Bubble Gum Neon Pigment
, Ultraviolet Blue Neon pigment
and Hydrated Chrome Green Oxide
