Thanks, Neal!

I HAVE seen this one before! In fact, I've read all the Mudwork
books--they're very useful. This particular recipe is only for
sidewalks--just like the plaster sidewalk chalk recipe. It will scratch chalk
boards if used on them. Do you know of a homemade recipe for "chalkboard"
chalk? Anybody?
