How to Use Washable Colouring Walls

Trans Canada Trail Colouring Wall for Canada 150 Anniversary Celebration

 

Colouring is more fun… on a WALL!

Who are these GREAT for? 

1. Group events!

Make your event extra memorable with a giant colouring wall! Draw lots of attention and engagement from all ages, then make fun social media posts to share the fun with the world!

Don’t want the fun to end? Make them washable to use them again and again!

2. Small children, Seniors and Visually/Physically Impaired

Big spaces and thick lines make them fun and easy to see and colour! If they scribble… no problem. Just wash it off with water! PRO TIP: This is especially handy when you’re in a hotel or someone else’s home. No mess!

What do you colour them with? 

To make them washable, use the special Crayola Ultra-Washable Crayons included with your wall! Digitally printed on durable vinyl, your wall can be wiped clean and used again and again for years to come. 

For the absolute brightest colours, use permanent markers such as Sharpies! BEWARE: They’ll look great but will NOT wash off.

How can you wash them?

All you need is water! When you use the special washable crayons (included), a damp cloth will wipe them off. Easy peasy.

NOTE on STAINING: If you don’t wash your wall for an extended period, the crayon may stain the vinyl. The light staining is still fine – it can be coloured on top of again and again!

To remove staining, try rubbing it with a household cooking oil then wipe it off. This should remove most, if not all, staining! Then, wipe your wall with dish soap to remove the oil before you colour it again.

How BIG are they?

Typically ranging in sizes from 1.7 x 3 feet to 4 x 6 feet. Additional sizes are available – just let me know what you’re thinking!

How can you hang them?

On a wall:

Your wall can include optional grommets in each corner. These reinforced holes can be hooked on to thumbtacks, nails, or, (my favourite), removable stick-on 3M hooks! I like to use the additional sticky strips which come with the hooks to stick the bottom corners to the wall, too.

Alternatively, you can attach alligator clips along the edges then hang them on thumbtacks, or just pin the vinyl right to your wall. 

On a free-standing wall:

Would you like your wall to be free-standing so it can be moved around? I love using alligator clips to attach them to a grid-wall, which can be found at retail display companies. I have also seen a mobile white-board used with big clamps to hold the wall on. 

On a table or the floor!

What could be easier?! The vinyl is quite durable so you can crawl around on it or even use it as a tablecloth while you colour, then wipe it clean when you are done. 

How can you store them?

Easily roll them up and tuck them away.

Which designs do they come in?

Contact me to chat about what you’d like! I do have a few pre-made designs, especially around the holidays. 

Can you order a custom wall? 

Absolutely! A design made specifically for you ensures your event or campaign will be memorable for ALL ages. They’re also a fun way to encourage social media posts, make your marketing interactive, or create a unique family or business tradition. 

How much do custom walls and pre-made designs cost?

Prices vary with sizes and how intricate and customized your design is. For example, a fully custom original design (4′ x 6′) typically varies from $1,200 to $1,700. It includes the design work, one printed vinyl wall and behind-the-scenes social media posts during its creation. 

For an economical alternative to a custom design, ask about my pre-made designs! Previously designed walls can be as affordable as $500 or even as low as $200 during bulk orders of holiday designs!
