Use a cleaning solution to remove any dirt or other residue from the top of the board.
Prime your BoardStix by shaking them well and pressing down on the tip several times until they are saturated with color.
* We found that if you apply a light coat of clear finish and let it dry before applying the BoardStix they won’t discolor your white board after removal.
Apply the BoardStix just like you would any other paint pen or permanent marker.
* Make sure one color is dry before you add another color on top of it so that they don’t mix.
Wait a few minutes for your design to dry.
To apply the clear finish, hold the can 10-12 inches away from the board and spray in a sweeping motion.
Let the clear finish dry for 3 hours, then you’re ready to ride.
* When you’re ready for a new look, simply use a mild glass cleaner to remove the original design. We found that using an abrasive sponge is the most efficient way to remove the BoardStix.
Note that BoardStix are not 100% removable on a white Blank snowboard and do leave some faint coloring. To avoid discoloring, add a light coat of clear finish and let it dry before applying the BoardStix they won’t discolor your white board after removal.
