Prime the vases and accompanying decorative items with acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry thoroughly. If the base colour still shows through, apply a second coat.
Now you're ready to start writing. To help you, we've prepared a sample alphabet for you as a template. For rough surfaces such as terracotta, we recommend our edding calligraphy marker, as it's particularly suitable for such surfaces. Its flexible and extremely soft calligraphy tip with its dynamic line thickness will help you create lettering with a bold and lively vibe.
