This is great! we made a stencil by painting Mod podge on an old screen and hit the college campus- this takes chalking to a whole new level.

Thanks Chip. I love your stencil idea. I'll have to give it a shot.

works well on concrete but not asphalt.

It also works with "real" chalk dissolved in water. Depending on the chalk you use, it takes 1-4 hours to dissolve. When it is thick enough, the coulours come out really bright on asphalt.
