Most kids use their chalk dry on a chalkboard or to scribble on the sidewalk. However it can also be used wet to create some unusual abstract artwork.

You can use several different colours.
Carefully remove the masking tape to reveal your abstract art. I found that the masking tape pulled the edges of the paper in places so it might be better to leave everything to fully dry first.
