Everything you want to spray should be as dry and clean as possible. We recommend that you spray paint outdoors if possible. Make sure you have all the materials you need before starting.
First, mark windows and doors on the milk cartons with a pencil and cut them out with the cutter.
Cover your work surface carefully with sheets or paper before spraying. Quickly spray the Tetrapak cartons with the edding Permanent Spray in Black or Anthracite. We recommend that you spray paint using horizontal and vertical strokes to ensure more even coverage. In our Spray 1x1 article, we offer important tips on how to achieve perfect results: https://www.edding.com/permanent-spray/spray-1x1/
Leave the paint to dry for approx. 30 minutes. Next, take the white edding 751 marker and decorate the house with white cobwebs, black bats and anything else you associate with Halloween. Glued-on eyes will create an extra spooky look.
Ornamental pumpkins boast a smooth surface, ideal for decorating with edding gloss paint markers. When decorated with painted windows and doors, a slimmer pumpkin will become a haunted house in next to no time.
