How to use chalk markers properly for Christmas window painting?
So that your chalk Christmas window paintings can last a long time in wind and weather in winter, they are of course painted on the inside of the window pane. But not only that is necessary, a clean glass is a must, of course. Therefore, prepare the pane and the templates for the Christmas window decoration:
Prepare the windows and templates:
- Clean the window pane with a grease-dissolving detergent. Normal window cleaner is quite sufficient.
- Prepare the selected Christmas window stencils for printing by simply printing them out.
- In the meantime, the windows should be dry so you can start.
Start your Christmas window painting:
- Tape the image to the outside of the window, with the image facing in.
- The stencil does not have to stick for a long time, so thorough cleaning in advance is not absolutely necessary. Nonetheless, the tape will not stick well to a surface that is too dusty.
- Now you can draw the picture from the inside by simply tracing the contours.
- Chalk markers are not only available in white. You can even paint your windows with colored motifs for Christmas.
Note: If you use templates with lettering, you should consider beforehand from which side of the window this should be read. If it is for indoor use, print it normally. However, if it is to be legible from the readable, it must be mirrored.
