Lettering on a dark glass bottle


Print out the template for lettering first. Wipe the bottle with a clean cloth, it should be free of grease and dust.Glass is generally difficult to sketch out, but there is a way to help. Stick the lines for "Dracula's" with the help of a narrow Washi tape (approx. 5 mm width). This means that you stick three strips of Washi-Tape horizontally onto the glass and write DRA - CULA'S into these two lines with the Faber-Castell Metallics pen. The Washi tapes are at the same time the aid for drawing the horizontal lines above and below the lettering.In the second step you use the Faber-Castell Metallics pen to draw "Blood" on the bottle and then draw the banner and other decorations. After drying, the Metallics are both smudge-proof and splash-proof, after fixing at 160°C for 30 minutes in the oven they are even waterproof (not dishwasher-proof).

Lettering on a clear glass bottle


Print out the template for lettering first. Wipe the bottle with a clean cloth, it should be free of grease and dust. You now have two options: either you simply draw the lettering or you place the lettering under the bottle to trace it.
Of course this doesn't work as easy on a round object as on a flat surface, but it does. To do this, you pinch an eye. This restricts spatial perception and makes drawing easier. You can rotate the bottle a little further after each letter to achieve uniform letter spacing. After drying, the Metallics are both smudge-proof and splash-proof, after fixing at 160°C for 30 minutes in the oven even waterproof (not dishwasher-proof).

Handlettering Place cards / Pumpkin


Required Materials

  • Faber-Castell Metallics
  • Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer Watercolour Markers for sketching out
  • Ornamental pumpkin

If you are not yet so proficient in typing, first write the names down again on a sheet of paper as a reminder. So you can easily see how much space you need for the name.

Now draw a help line on the pumpkin for orientation, on this line you write the name. I used the fixed tip of the Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer Watercolour Marker (green or grey). With this pen you can also specify the name on the pumpkin. Since the color of the pen is water-based, you can simply wipe off your preliminary drawing if the positioning doesn't fit yet.

In the second step, use the Faber-Castell Metallics to write the name on the pumpkin.
When the Metallics paint has dried well, you can carefully wipe off the help line. Done!
