First, clean the window thoroughly. Before using a chalk marker, you need to activate it: Shake the marker vigorously with the cap still on, then remove the cap, place the nib on absorbent paper and pump it up and down a few times until ink appears in the nib. (And don’t forget to always store the marker horizontally after use.) Now you’re ready to get started.
If your motifs are rather complex you’ll find it easier to use a paper template: when it’s ready, simply stick it to the back of the window, copy the motif – and you’re done! Or you can draw freehand if you prefer. If you’re not happy with your motif or you make a mistake, simply wipe the window clean with a damp cloth and have another go.
Or you may wish to draw your own decorative and colourful window pictures. edding chalk markers are available in nine vibrant shades.
