In our photo, you can see everything you need at a glance. You’ll need edding 4000 matt paint markers in the following colours: blue (colour code 003), green (004), pink (009) and yellow (005). If you prefer a finer nib, you can opt for the edding 4040 matt paint marker.
Start by printing out the template showing kitchen utensils. Turn it over so you can see the images showing through. Use the pencil to shade over the outlines. (Alternatively, you can transfer them straight onto the file with the aid of carbon paper.)
To transfer a motif onto what will be the front of your file, position the selected motif centrally on the spine of the holder (with the printed image uppermost) and trace the outlines in pencil. It’s OK to press a bit harder so that the outlines are visible on the surface underneath.
You’ll now be able to see the transferred shape (for example, the whisk) and can start colouring it in. Before you use a matt paint marker, you need to activate it as described here. The same steps apply to all matt paint markers. Once the marker has been activated, colour in the kitchen utensils any way you like. We made our row of utensils multi-coloured, but you may prefer to stick to a single colour.
