Before you start designing, activate the edding gloss paint marker by following the instructions. (Link) Next, test out the words you want to write on a piece of paper. That way, you can decide which style you like best. You can work with rounded or square letters, in cursive or block capitals, or colour the letters in.
If you want to work with a stencil, first copy the stencil in the size you need and stick it inside the glass using sticky tape. The design will then show through and you’ll be able to trace over it on the outside of the glass. First, go over the outline of the design with the gloss paint marker, then colour it in.
When hand lettering, there are countless lettering styles to experiment with. Simply do what you like! Painted lemons will add an extra cool twist to your design.
