Are you looking for a creative gift or would you like an individual backpack yourself?

DISCOVER HANDLETTERING | The art of beautiful writing

Our paper collection inspired Franzi from @Nordlichtlettering to a great backpack motif. We absolutely had to ask her if she could write you instructions on how to individually illuminate the bags & rucksacks in the paper collection.

HERE WE GO

What you need for this:

  • One of our rucksacks or a bag from the paper collection
  • Paper and pen for sketching, alternatively an iPad with the Procreate app
  • A watercolor pencil for sketching
  • A cloth and a vessel with water
  • A ruler
  • Waterproof acrylic markers or alternatively deco markers (e.g. Karin Markers Decobrush) and deco color varnish for sealing

SKETCH

STEP 1

Miss the area you want to design and transfer the size to the sketch paper or iPad. Pre-draw your subject. With the iPad you can take a .B the backpack and display the sketch on the backpack.

TO DRAW

STEP 2

Transfer the sketch to the backpack with a watercolour pencil. Due to the waterproof surface of the backpack, you can simply wipe the pre-drawing again afterwards.

Now start to recreate the pre-drawing with the acrylic markers. The best way to do this is to start with the lowest layer and add contours and details later, for.B example.

DETAILS

STEP 3

When the bottom layer is dried, you can start drawing the details. I added a shadow .B the letter and banner. I also put a few highlights on the ME. When the acrylic marker has dried, you can then simply wipe the pre-signature with a damp cloth.

(When using decomarkers, you must also make sure that you do not wipe the color with you. You should also seal the drawing with Deco Color Paint after drying.

RESULT

ALREADY DONE.

So quickly a beautiful, individual backpack was created. The perfect idea for gifts with a personal message.

The NOAN backpack made of kraft paper is available in three colours. So there are no limits to your imagination. Of course, you can also “beletter” our shoulder bags just as well.
