Using the edding 1200 fibre pen. First sketch out the motif on paper. Alternatively, you can print out our haunted castle image and adjust it to size on a photocopier. This motif is available for download.
Fix the template to the back of the window with sticky tape, so the motif shows through. Now take the chalk marker and draw over the outline of the design and colour it in.
Before you start, here’s how to activate your edding chalk marker: Shake the marker firmly with the cap still on. Place the nib on some scrap paper and carefully pump it up and down a few times until ink fills the nib. Start by writing a few test strokes on the scrap paper. And don’t forget to always replace the cap securely after use.
The thicker edding 4090 chalk marker (stroke width 4-15 mm) is particularly good for colouring in larger areas. Finish off the haunted house by adding little bats and other Halloween-related figures. Drawings can be removed from the windows with total ease and corrections made quickly and simply using a damp cloth.
