Equipment- Paper and markers for drawing (or what to print models found on the internet) - Repositionable scotch tape (crepe scotch or masking tape) - One or more chalk markers (Posca or Uni) - A cloth to remove burrs
Budget: 5 euros Duration: it all depends on the size of your windows! Age of children: from 6 years old
Steps1. Print the models or have the children draw on sheets of paper.
2. Fix them with repositionable tape on the outside of the glass, the drawings towards you. You can cut the sheet to separate the different patterns and create a composition, or even duplicate elements by moving the sheet as many times as necessary.
3. Shake the chalk felt and start the flow of the liquid chalk on a rough sheet. Draw on the glass (interior side) following the contours of the drawings. Attention on the double glazing, it is essential not to move so as not to change the angle of view during work, the drawing would risk splitting or the contours of not matching.
4. If you wish, move the sheets on the back of the glass to make the same drawing several times. You can choose a random placement or opt for a frieze or pattern that repeats regularly.
Note: If you prefer that the drawings are more visible from the outside than from the inside, it is better to draw on the outside of the glass, and then use special markers that are water resistant and only peel off. using a specific cleaner. In this case, avoid inscriptions or patterns whose "meaning" is important, otherwise you will have to trace them backwards so that they appear in place from the outside!
