Temporary griptape color

These days you can find griptape in all different colors, but if you just want a custom drawing that only lasts a few days, chalk can be the answer.

You can basically just use sidewalk chalk to draw anything you want on your griptape.

If you want to color your whole griptape, cover the tail of the board in a really thick layer of chalk, then use a broom to sweep the chalk dust all over the board.

It's not bad for your griptape and the chalk will disappear after a few days, so give it a try!
