Step 2

Prep the chalkboard surface by rubbing chalk completely around the sides of the pot so it covers the entire surface. Wipe the chalk away with a paper towel.

This step creates a prepped surface optimal for chalkboard writing. (If you skip this step, the first message you write on it will never completely erase!)
