With the help of Pelikan PLAKA it is surprisingly easy to turn a stone into a designer object. In this edition of Teacher Info we would like to show you how.

An extraordinary stone: a work of art created with the help of PLAKA Paint

The whole stone should be given a base coat of white PLAKA Paint. Once it is dry it should be given a second coat with white PLAKA Paint. The second coat stops the underground from shimmering through and thus enables the colours to glow more powerfully. In our choice of colours we went for a strong contrast: black and white.
The choice of other complementary colours would also be an interesting idea. Here the Pelikan "Circle of Colour" can help you with the selection.

Once the PLAKA Paint is dry, the wave pattern can be drawn with a pencil then filled out carefully with the black paint. The outline requires particular attention to avoid smudging the paint.

After the paint has dried the stone can be coated with Pelikan Clear Varnish. This will protect the colours from fading if the stone is placed on a window sill in the sunlight as decoration, for example.

As you see, with PLAKA Paint an everyday item like a stone can be turned into a designer object. Try it for yourself and find a special place for your very own creation.
