How do you make food safe projects?
I'm stenciling on a variety of surfaces with chalk paste that will or could come into contact with food and I'm wondering if there is a way to seal the item for safe contact with food. Items include ceramic bowls, plates, cups, bowls, and wood surfaces such as cutting boards, pizza boards, food trays, etc. Home Depot sold me a cutting board oil and said it would seal the design. However 1) it only works on wood and 2) the paste is water soluble, so I'm concerned the liquid oil is going to cause the design to smear.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Stripping off A LOT of chalk paint

I would use urethane over it.
So wouldn't use chalk paste. For things to be hand washed always use oil based products. That is what commercial made products use.
I agree with Kelli. No way to seal to make it food safe. Do use it.
Chalk Paint® Wax is food safe when completely cured.Absolutely! Both Chalk Paint® and Chalk Paint® Wax are safe to use on furniture destined for baby and child use. However, before putting the item to use, please allow the wax finish to cure for a minimum of 14 days.
Samples of Chalk Paint® and Chalk Paint® Wax have been independently tested and certified as Toy Safe according to strict European regulations (BS EN 71-3:2013).
Annie Sloan cares about your health. While there are no inherently harmful ingredients in Chalk Paint® Wax, we do advise that expectant mothers get someone else to apply it for them.After you have applied Chalk Paint® Wax, you’ll find that it will become dry to the touch very quickly. At this stage, it is still what you might call “soft.” It will start to harden as the solvents in the wax evaporate. This hardening process is known as “curing.” Curing can take between 5 and 21 days. Finishes prefer warm, dry conditions during the curing process; high humidity, cold temperatures, and application thickness can extend drying and curing time substantially.
Of course, you can use your newly finished piece straight away, but you should treat it with extra care until the wax has cured completely.
Chalk Paint® Wax is food safe when completely cured.Once Chalk Paint® Wax is used, no other protective finish can be applied to your project. Attempting to add another coating ⎯ such as Annie Sloan Lacquer or another varnish or even polyurethane ⎯ over a wax finish is futile.
Also, Modge Podge makes a sealer that is Dishwasher Safe, which may be useful for some projects.
Friend, I understand. I really love baking and often we get together with the family and cook together. We have a tradition like this. Fortunately, I recently came across a website https://www.edelweissbakeryfl.com/blog/ . This is a pretty useful blog where there are very good recipes. I tried to cook some dishes and it turned out very tasty. Good luck!
