Our acrylic markers come in a wide array of colours, so feel free to pick your favourites. The broad edding 5000 acrylic marker is ideal for colouring larger areas. For more delicate patterns and small areas, however, we recommend the edding 5300 fine acrylic marker and the medium edding 5100.
Before you start, wipe the wood slices with a damp cloth to remove any dust. It's a good idea to sketch out the motif in pencil first. That way, when you get to the next step, you can simply colour in the sections.
First of all, you need to activate all the markers. Leave the cap on and shake the pen until you can hear the mixing ball rattle inside, then carefully pump up and down until ink appears in the tip. Test the marker on a piece of scrap paper. Now colour in the areas of the sketch as neatly as you can. For this you'll need the medium acrylic marker in neon yellow.
Use yellow green to colour in the leaves of the lemon. Once the paint has dried, it's time to fill in the surrounding area in classy mauve. And there you have it ‒ your first coaster is ready! Repeat this method to decorate the other wood slices with a variety of motifs.
