Step-by-step tutorial

Rinse and clean various old screw-top jars and remove the labels. Now print out the motif template. Adjust the print size here in advance. After printing, cut off the white edges of the template.

Now place the template in the jar so that it is clearly visible. Fix the template in the jar with a piece of adhesive strip.

Then use the Lumocolor paint marker to draw the individual motifs from the template.

Finally, beautiful details or highlights can be drawn in white. Of course, you can also create your own designs and draw them on your jar freehand. There are no limits to creativity.
