Now the Colour Mixer comes into its own: each colour gradient requires two brushpens – to make orange-yellow, for example, insert the orange pen in the top of the Colour Mixer and the yellow pen in the bottom, so the pen tips are touching. Hold the pens upright and wait 1-2 seconds. The yellow brushpen will now have absorbed orange ink, so you’re ready to start drawing. The line will be deep orange at first, gradually changing to yellow. The Colour Mixer allows you to mix colours any way you want. You’ll be amazed at the incredible variety of colours you can create.
For the happy pumpkin faces, use the compass to draw circles on the paper the size you want (approx. 4 cm diameter) and cut them out. Draw the outlines of the pumpkins in pencil. Colour in the pumpkin faces first, then use the black pen to colour in the eyes, mouth and around the edges.
Additional effects in pastel tones can be achieved with the new edding 1500 Pastel Pen – Soft White. Punch a small hole in the motifs, insert a piece of ribbon and hang them on the garland. You can use this method to create other designs, such as the word HALLOWEEN, spread out across 7 circles and joined together as bunting.
