Drawing motifs on wood - Cutting board with geometric tiger
A piece of street art for your home! The brightly coloured tiger immediately catches everyone's eye and the geometric patterns won't let go off you.
With the Lumocolor paint markers you can bring rich colors onto natural wooden surfaces and enhance chopping boards, boxes and tabletops with creative street art motifs.
Before you start your project, sand the surface a little and then wipe off the wood dust thoroughly.
Hatch the back of the template with a soft pencil, turn the paper over and trace all the lines with the hard pencil. You can also use a ruler for the geometric shapes.
Now you can start colouring the tiger. Fill the geometric shapes alternately with different colours. Let the coloured areas dry well before you add ink next to them, so the colours don’t mix.
Use the black marker to trace the tiger's eyes, snout and mouth to make it look even more dangerous.
Draw a few more graphic elements around the tiger's head with the hard pencil. In this example, we added abstract soap bubbles, leaves, gradients, and striped fins.
Finally, you can trace the contours with the black paint marker to make the individual shapes stand out better.
