Individual drybag ▪ DIY Tutorial | STAEDTLER

Step-by-step tutorial

Slide a smooth, stable material (e.g. some cardboard) into the drybag and smooth it out. This makes it easier to draw onto the material.

Print out the motif onto paper and hatch the entire back using a soft pencil. Of course, you can also choose a free motif and draw it onto your bag with the Lumocolor markers.

Tip: Depending on the size of your drybag, you can scale the template as needed in a copy shop and have them print it out.

Place the template with the hatched side facing downwards onto the drybag and fix it using adhesive tape. Trace the contours of the motif with a sharp pencil – this is how you can quickly copy the motif onto your bag.

Now colour your motif! There are no limits to you imagination – use the different Lumocolor markers to create your artwork in your favourite colours.

Tip: Start with the light colours e.g. yellow or orange first and then continue with the darker tones. This will prevent the colours form smearing and creating unwanted colour gradients.

Use the black Lumocolor permanent marker to draw the contours of your motif. Then, apply the finishing touches: Use the thin, black lumocolor permanent marker to add fine details such as leaf veins, dots, lines and hatching.

Finally, take the cardboard out of the bag. Now your drybag is beautified with an awesome street art inspired motif and ready for all adventures!
