    How badly does this stain sidewalks? I’m looking at doing a campus wide chalking for a couple of fundraisers and I was wondering if you noticed long lasting stains where the chalk paint was.


    • That sounds like a great idea! We had no stains with ours and have done it a few times. I’m thinking it would depend a lot on the brand of food coloring you use as well as the surface. Definitely test it out first to be sure!
