Regarding this one:
A: Only the WHITE sticks are actual CHALK. The colored sticks are the same material as coloring pencils lead, of the waxier type.
B: IF you are looking to mark fabrics with the colored sticks but want the markings to disappear, DO NOT use this product. As I stated in A, the colored sticks are waxy. The markings will not wash off. You're better off using the kids' sidewalk chalk, or the regular sized colored chalk from Crayola, or Rose Art, or whatever generic brand chalk. I have had no problems marking my fabrics with these, including my wedding dress.
C: Regarding the breakage. Keep only about a quarter of an inch (or about 7mm) of the chalk's tip exposed. This will maintain the pressure fulcrum supported inside the cartridge. Same concept as with mechanical pencils and with regular wood pencils: If the tip is too long, it will break when you put pressure on it with your hand and try to slide it across the surface. And some people (like me) use naturally more pressure than others to write.
D: The white chalk looks great, just like regular size chalk, on the blackboard, for smaller, detailed designs, writing, etc.
E: the pencil sharpener that comes with it works great! It sharpens the sticks to the perfect size. Be careful not to introduce the stick too far into the sharpener or it will break at a point where the most pressure is being applied (usually a slight curve created by the twisting/turning). Chalk is not meant to curve, at all! The waxy tips may have a little curve-tolerance, but still very little at shorter lengths. Hope this helps.
I wanted to write song lyrics on a small chalkboard I purchased on clearance. Regular chalk was too big to be detailed but this worked great!
I love the holder for the chalk, and the sharpener worked better than I expected.
I was not concerned with erase ability, as this was for a display, but I used a magic eraser and it wiped off another board I had without incident.
1.) The color does not consistently come out of fabric. The first time I used these, I used green and was able to wash it out. However, I subsequently used it on a second quilt, again using green, and despite repeated washing in hot water, I was unable to get the pencil out. In fairness, the product description does not indicate that these chalks wash out, so perhaps they are intended to be permanent. However, I DO NOT recommend this as a temporary chalk marking tool.
2.) The chalk did not stay extended out of the cartridge. In the course of marking a quilt, the chalk would gradually be pushed into the cartridge. I'd be unable to pull it out again (due to not being able to get a grip on it), and I'd have to get a second piece of chalk and push it all the way out the other end of the cartridge, then reinsert it. This process quickly became annoying and had to be done 10 or 20 times in the course of marking a crib-size quilt.
Unfortunately, it looks like I am still in search of the perfect marking tool. No luck yet!
The way the PEN is set up, the small pieces (For the most part) won't matter as it grips it near where it's coming out, so there's that, and it's still usable, just not with a sharp tip, which is kind of what I wanted. Not worth the time and effort to send it back, but definitely don't recommend dealing with the company who ships is such a crappy way, KNOWING it is a product that will break easily... I mean COME ON it's thin chalk pieces! WTF!
Also, watch out for those colored ones.. Those are not chalk. I don't know who they thought they were fooling with that one but you can tell immediately, they are not chalk. They look and feel more like a crayon.
