The smooth, soft chalk and strong colour pigments have always been recognised in Mercurius Blackboard Chalk. And the newly released 2024 range holds up to the reputation! Pastel-like in application, the colours have a high coverage and are easily blended on the board. And the pigments are 100% Natural!

A Handy Tip from Experienced Black Board Artists:

For a deep charcoal black, use high-quality Willow Charcoal, to add colour accents use LYRA Polycrayon Soft Pastels available in packs of 12 or 24, for shading, the LYRA Polycrayon Grey Tones and for skin and nature tones, use the LYRA Polycrayon Brown Tones.

Excited about our new chalk - keep an eye out for the extended colour range coming later in 2024!

Introducing the Mercurius Blackboard Pastel Chalk

Chalk is a common product, and will normally contain common ingredients including Calcium Carbonate, pigments, and fillers. Getting the right formula is what differentiates general chalk from true art quality pastel chalk!

This is why Mercurius has taken over 12 months to reformulate our chalk! Not all Calcium Carbonate is the same, and pigments come from a variety of sources - both natural and synthetic. Mercurius Pastel Chalk uses a high-quality form of Calcium Carbonate with quality all-natural pigments, in a proprietary formula to limit the need for unhealthy fillers and creating an all-natural chalk. 

The result - a high quality, natural pigmented pastel chalk, answering to the demands of the blackboard artist and meeting all current worldwide safety certifications for child health and use in the classroom!

Natural - Provided by Nature itself!

Mercurius Art Makes Sense Blackboard Pastel Chalks are made using purely natural colour pigments only. The carefully selected natural pigments give our Blackboard Pastel Chalks rich and expressive colours.

No additional synthetic colour pigments are added to the Mercurius Art Makes Sense Blackboard Pastel Chalks to give them their unique colour. Our colours are proudly provided by nature itself!

Consistent - for Writing and Drawing

Mercurius Art Makes Sense blackboard pastels are especially developed for creative drawing as well as writing.

While developing our Blackboard Pastel Chalks, we paid close attention to the properties we believe high-quality blackboard Pastel Chalks should have.

This has resulted in a well-balanced and consistent texture, break resistance, colour release and adhesion throughout the whole Blackboard Pastel Chalks range.  

Strong for writing without scratching, soft for drawing without being brittle!

Expressive - Inspiring Masterpieces

At Mercurius we hold the use of blackboards close to our hearts. We feel that drawing and creating in front of children is an essential part of education and hope that the use of the classic blackboard in schools will remain.

We believe that the expressive quality of our Blackboard Pastel Chalks will inspire teachers to take pleasure in their creative artwork - and for children to find inspiration in the depth and living nature of the finished masterpeice!

Exclusive - our Special Proprietary Formula

Our Mercurius Blackboard Pastel Chalks are made using an exclusive recipe developed for Mercurius only.

The finest, natural pigments are blended with a proprietary formula which allows superb colour intensity and a smooth application.

Developed from the experiences of Steiner Teachers from the around the world, Mercurius Blackboard Art Chalk is perfect for the most demanding masterpieces and meets the health regulations for classroom use across the globe.
