In our example, we used fine-nibbed edding 780 gloss paint markers in white (colour code 049) and black (001). Follow the link below to find our printable template.
Before using a gloss paint marker, you need to activate it: Shake the marker vigorously with the cap on, then 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 all ready to get started. (And don’t forget to always store the marker horizontally after use.)
If you choose to use our template, the easiest way to transfer the motif onto the phone case is with carbon paper and a pencil. Then all you have to do is use gloss paint markers to go over the image and colour it in. If you want to use multiple colours, always let one colour dry for a little while before continuing with the next.
