Ceramic Star Ornament

Ceramic & Terracotta marker tips: • Store ceramic & terracotta markers horizontally (flat). • Always replace the cap immediately after using, even if you are just taking a short break. This will stop the ink from drying out. • Shake ceramic & terracotta markers well before use. • Press the tip of your marker gently & repeatedly to start the ink flow. Do this on some scrap paper, you may need to repeat this step each time you use your markers to get the ink flowing! • Apply your design to a clean dry surface.

How to decorate:

1. Shake your markers well before use.
