What kind of chalk do you buy ? Is it crayola anti-dust white chalk ? Is it earthy what's good about it other than the crunch?

Today I finished my last piece of clay that I bought when I was in the UK over Christmas - really thought it would last longer but I guess I overindulged. It was Mavu Seller's original type, and that last piece was the best of them all.

All I am having now is chalk (regular Crayola) and luckily stores have restocked. My bf just found out recently that I eat chalk lol - he knew about the clay, but saw a box of chalk in the car and made the connection and asked if I ate it. Luckily he doesn't think it's too strange!

I found a small chunk of clay in my car, must have fallen out of the bag. Was so happy to see it, will try to make it last until tomorrow. It is good too!

I will probably order some from Wanda soon, love her clay.

No one sells samples here I'm afraid. Pretty sure u get more for your money if u try one order. I'd say do your research on the forum to see which clay ticks your boxes the most.
