Tips for the perfect window decoration with chalk markers

 Whether you prefer to start with the templates or just want to put your talent to the test freehand, painting on glass is a great pastime and small mistakes can be easily wiped away and touched up. So it's not a problem if you make a mistake.

To make your window decoration even easier and better, we have a few useful tips for you.


1. Choose an appropriate theme

 Sometimes really great works of art come out of it if you just start painting. But especially as a beginner, it is better if you determine a motif beforehand that you want to paint on the window pane. Otherwise you may get bogged down and in the end there will only be chaos on the window. It is best to create a small sketch on paper beforehand.


2. Start with simpler motifs

 Admittedly, if you look around the Internet for window decorations with chalk markers, you will come across so many great motifs and inspirations that you quickly get carried away and decide on a very difficult motif. But if you are a beginner and you still lack the practice, you should make sure that you keep it simple at first and only slowly increase the level of difficulty of your pictures. This way you will always achieve good results and stay motivated.


3. Paint from the inside or outside?

 In general, there is nothing wrong with painting pictures from the outside on the window pane. But keep in mind that you won't be able to use your decoration for very long because the chalk markers can't withstand rain and moisture for long. It is therefore advisable to paint more on the inside of the windows.


4. Write lettering on the windows

 Artistic lettering and quotes are very trendy. So it makes sense that you would also like to decorate the window pane with one or the other. With lettering, however, you have to make sure that you have to write it mirror-inverted so that you can read it the right way around from the outside. That's why you should definitely create a template for fonts first, because otherwise you'll probably have a hard time rethinking and have to make corrections again and again.


5. Practice makes perfect!

 When you have a chalk marker in your hand for the first time, it is quite normal that you first have to familiarize yourself with how it is used and how it works. That's why you will always make mistakes in the beginning. Luckily, you can easily fix them with a rag and some water. However, you shouldn't give up right away if something doesn't work the way you want it to. If you keep at it, you'll get better and better.
