I was wondering if chalk had a shelf life? I bought a box of Master chalk a couple of years ago and I think it was a couple years old when I bought it but it doesn't seem to go on as good as it first did. Anyone know?

I put a little Shake n' bake on mine and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. It comes out crispy and goes great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

I think if it has been exposed to excess humidity it's not as soft and won't cover as well. I guess you could say it gets a little crusty. If your not having any problems with miscue's though then I'd use it.

I really don't think chalk has a shelf life because I recently found some chalk of mine that has to be like 5 or 6 years old and i haven't had any problem with it.

I got a deal on a 'gross' in the early 90s and still have about 50 pieces left. I keep them in a cool dry place, wrapped in a plastic bag.

I usually keep about a dozen in my case. Never know when you need a new piece of chalk.

No problem here. Any chalk fallinng on the floor is perceived as food for the northern dogs. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Thanks, I can use what I have. It just doesn't seem to go on as smooth as it first did. I tried sanding the blocks down a little bit and it seemed to help.
