The edding 5100 medium set contains five delightfully elegant festive shades. Alternatively, you can choose your own favourite colours for the stars. Combine the dough ingredients well and knead thoroughly.
Roll out the dough and cut out the stars, using a toothpick to make holes to enable you to hang the stars up. Leave the stars to dry out for around 4 days, turning them over after 2 days. Alternatively, you can also dry out the stars in the oven.
Now it’s time to decorate the stars. Firstly, you’ll need to activate the acrylic marker as follows: shake the marker with the cap still on until you can clearly hear the mixing balls inside, then pump the marker up and down carefully until ink appears in the tip. Test on a piece of paper first. Decorate the stars in whatever way you wish: for example, you could colour in your star using just one shade, or cover half of it in gold, as you can see in our photo.
Graphic patterns are also really striking, as we’ve demonstrated here by using berry and moss green as our chosen colours.
