This listing is for Champagne Chalk. This is natural, fine calcium carbonate in powder form, prepared from the pure, microcrystalline chalk from the Champagne region in France.
There is also a separate listing for 11 of De Kat's colored pigments here. You can use these pigments and binders to make your own crayons, colored chalks, or paints.
Designer and SMP friend, Merel Karhof, created a fantastic project, called Krijtjes - meaning Little Crayons - using De Kat's pigments. For full instructions, supplies and templates, please click here.
