Instructions for Chalk Kits
Dry Mix (Flour, Food Coloring and Eggshells)
Combine hot water and dry mix together in a bowl until it can be clumped together (Keep in mind that the ratio of eggshells to flour to chalk should be approximately 1:3:3. Hence, using our chalk kit, the ratio to water is 4:1 (One tablespoon)
Once the mixture can be clumped together easily without breaking apart, roll it into a cylinder before using the paper towel to compress it into a log shape. (At this step, the mixture can also be modelled into other shapes such as hearts)
Bake for 300F for 15-20 minutes or let dry for 1-3 days, ensuring that the center of the log has fully hardened
Process for Acid Neutralizer
Upon request, containers may be provided for egg shell collection. Weekly weekly, egg shells will be collected from businesses. For households, pickups will be biweekly.
All egg shells are baked in high temperatures to prevent contamination and kill diseases.
Seeing fit, eggshells will be processed into 1 of 4 products; bird and chicken calcium supplements, calcium carbonate fertilizer, chalk or decorative purposes.
