For this drinking glass decoration idea you’ll need edding gloss paint markers in these colours: pastel yellow (colour code 135), pastel rose (138), pastel green (137) and red (002). Before using a gloss paint marker, you need to activate it: Shake the marker vigorously with the cap on. Remove the cap, place the nib on absorbent paper and pump it up and down gently a few times until ink appears in the nib. Now you’re ready to get started (and don’t forget to always store the marker horizontally after use). Start by making a template of the quote or words you want to write on the glass.
Next, simply place the template inside the glass (use sticky tape if necessary).
Go over the lettering with a gloss paint marker and colour in the motifs. If the ink runs dry, gently pump the nib again a few times as described earlier.
Continue to add quotes and summer-themed motifs until your drinking glass decorations are complete. If you’re working with several colours, always let one colour dry briefly before continuing with the next.
