The Wonderliner

The new Pelikan Wonderliners are suitable for many purposes. These liners possess a fascinating luminance; they cover well and dry quickly with a matt-finish. The liners are permanent on an absorbent surface and can be washed off non-absorbent surfaces. Teachers Info offers you tips on how you can obtain amazing results with simple materials in your art lessons.

 

Here's how:

  1. Cut pieces of approximately 7 cm from a cardboard roll which correspond to the desired width of the bangle. Our models are 2 cm, 4 cm and 6 cm wide.
  2. After the card bangles have been given a base coat of PLAKA Lack or PLAKA Lack metallic, a pattern can be applied with Wonderliners. Because of the excellent opacity of the Wonderliners, the pattern can be corrected if the first attempt does not succeed. We recommend starting with simple shapes, e.g. stripes, waves or circles. The Wonderliners offer a choice of 10 shades as well as gold and silver for your personal colour combination.
  3. The narrowest of our 3 models was painted on the in and the side with PLAKA Lack metallic green and then a wavy line in sky blue which divides the bangle into 2 halves. In the one half pink spots were added, the other flowers "blossom" in white and dark green speckled with gold. The rim of the bangle was painted with Wonderliner in gold.
  4. The bangle illustrated in the foreground was painted on the inside with PLAKA Lack in black and outside with PLAKA Lack in gold. The graphic pattern was added with Wonderliners in the colours dark green, sky blue, orange, black and white. The personal touch is added with a signature.
  5. The widest model was decorated with fantasy shapes. The base coat was made in dark blue Pelikan PLAKA Lack. The outline of the shapes was made in sky blue Wonderliner and then filled in with sky blue and dark green. Finally the outlines were accentuated in silver.
  6. The results are really impressive. Who would guess that these bangles are made from cardboard! With Wonderliners real "gems" can be conjured up in no time at all.
