1) Shake the marker with the lid closed for a minimum of 5 seconds.2) Prime the tip (test surface different to the object to be decorated) press on the tip severaltimes on a sheet of paper to soak it with paint. Priming is fast. There is no need to applyquick repetitive pressure. Keeping constant pressure on the tip once it partially retractsinto the marker enables the paint to pass through the pump and load the nib.3) Test on a sheet of paper or ideally on the surface to be applied to decoMarker can be used on most surfaces: wood (with a gesso-type undercoat), paper, cardboard, metal, chassis, fabric, photographs, polystyrene, terracotta, ... and several techniques can be applied. The range has a good colour fidelity after drying and excellent lightfastness. (See 'STORAGE')
The same recommendations as the first use. It is advisable to clean the nib holder with papertowels, in case of accidentally applying excessive dosage of paint, and before clipping the lid forstorage.
