Silhouette & BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder!
If you love to create in any way shape or form, you need to learn how these two play so well together. Here’s an example…
This hot cocoa bar was created with BOTH Silhouette AND BB Frösch. The beautiful buffet was transformed with BB Frösch along with the fun Hot Cocoa sign. We used our Silhouette CAMEO to create the stencil for the sign along with the buffalo plaid fabric banner. WAY FUN!!
It’s super easy to make signs with Silhouette & BB Frösch.
You can download WhipperBerry’s Hot Cocoa sign design HERE.
I typically use the Silhouette Premium Vinyl when I’m making signs. You can also use the Stencil Material.
With this sign, started with a BB Frösch (more about BB Frösch in just a second) Faux Stained base. You can learn all about that HERE.
The secret to a perfect stencil is to seal your stencil with BB Frösch Premium Finishing Wax before you paint. It helps seal any edges that might leak.
Then I paint away…
I distress the sign and then finish it with another coat of clear wax to seal and protect my work. It gives the sign a beautiful sheen.
This same BB Frösch / Silhouette sign was a part of a fun wedding recently. Witney Carson from Dancing with the Stars commissioned WhipperBerry & BB Frösch to create a custom sign for the Hot Cocoa bar at the reception.
I’ve been working on signs like this for a while now, I LOVE THEM!!
Now, many of you are very familiar with the whole family of Silhouette cutting machines. Whether you have the Silhouette CAMEO, Portrait or the Curio… You know that you can design and create all kinds of fabulous goodies. If you didn’t know though, I’ve recently switched over to using a Cricut more often. I talk about the differences between Cricut vs Silhouette here. BUT…
What is BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder?
Many of you may be asking, “What is BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder?“
I’m so glad you asked! BB Frösch is an all-natural powder that you add to any flat latex paint and turn it into chalk paint. The reason why we all love chalk paint is the ease of use & manipulability .
Ease of use – NO sanding, stripping or priming.
Manipulability – You can manipulate all kinds of finishes like smooth and modern, faux stain – all the way to shabby chic.
What BB Frösch brings to the table is AFFORDABILITY & FLEXIBILITY!
Affordability – When you use BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder vs. boutique brands of chalk paint, you cut your paint expense in HALF!
Flexibility – YOU get to select your paint color, any color of the rainbow! If you were to use one of the boutique brands, you have a limited color palette.
You can paint wood, metal, glass, fabric… We’ve painted pretty much anything from a kitchen all the way down to the rug.

Silhouette & BB Frösch
The beauty of BB Frösch is that it brings the fantastic Chalk Paint world into the crafting world as well. Before it was way to expensive to use chalk paint for anything other than painting furniture or cabinetry. The cost was way to prohibitive for small scale projects. NOT with BB Frösch!! You can get all of the magic of chalk paint without the high price tag. Couple that with any of the Silhouette products and you have a match made in HEAVEN!!
You can create custom signs like these or create your very own stencil to stencil your pillows, bags or rugs. Really the things that you can do with these two are LIMITLESS!!
Now that we’ve wet your whistle… We would LOVE to help YOU get started on your very own Silhouette + BB Frösch project!
