the chalk board spray can be found at Wal-Mart or any paint shop store.

The Bow is made from Bastard teak the size depends on you and make sure it has a curve like a bow the picture attached shows the bow after it has been painted.
Step 3: How to Paint the Bow
you need to have the chalk board spray to paint it so this is it how it goes first cover it with masking tape and the coat it with the chalk board spray the directions are given on the can it self read them and spray away and then let it dry for at least 1 hour for best results.
Step 4: Carving
After spraying it carve the ends like the picture attached above for the rope.
