Painting chestnuts effectively with Marabu YONO Marker

In no time at all, the little souvenirs become the perfect autumn decoration.

Chestnuts are an all-round wonderful autumn activity: not only is collecting them great fun, but also imaginative painting with the YONO marker.

How it is done:

1 For the paint to stick well to chestnuts, they should be clean and dry. So if necessary, clean them with a little water and a cloth.

2 Before first use, shake the YONO markers with the cap closed for 60 seconds and gently press the tip onto some paper several times to activate the ink flow. When the tip is full of ink, write on the test paper.

3 Then the chestnuts can be painted. Simply use the YONO marker to paint on simple patterns such as dots, lines and circles.

4 Those who have more practice can also paint on lettering and filigree ornaments.

5 Finally, allow everything to dry well and arrange the chestnuts attractively, e.g. in a bowl.
