    Нow to Paint a Balloon:

    Step 1. Choose a balloon with a contrasting color so that the inscription is clearly visible and easy to read.

    Step 2. Preparation of a balloon itself. Make sure that the balloon is perfectly clean, free from stains, adhering lint.

    Step 3. Cleaning a balloon. For best results, wipe the surface of the balloon l with rubbing alcohol or a napkin. Wait for the balloon to dry completely.

    Step 4. Check markers before balloon painting. Remember to shake each of the markers well. Before creating a layer, be sure to test a marker on a piece of paper to ensure a smooth flow of ink inside the marker body.

    Tip! Do not use fine markers to create lettering, as their tips are sharp, which means they are not suitable for delicate work of creating balloon painting art. It is best to use medium oil markers - they are the perfect choice.

    Step 5. Optional - drawing with stencils. If you are not sure if you can do the lettering yourself, use a stencil. Place it on the surface of a balloon and glue it with adhesive tape. Trace the outlines of the letters and remove the stencil.

    Step 6. Create lettering manually. If you are good at drawing, just go for it. Decide on the line thickness of your font. Start by drawing the outline of all the letters. Then tint them with the marker of the desired color.

    Step 7. Creation of additional accents in balloon painting art. When the lettering itself is completely dry, add shadows to the letters. Get creative and add stars, hearts, serpentine and other decorations to make lettering more festival-like. To do this, use multi-colored markers.

    Step 8. Trace the outline of the lettering with gold or black marker to add volume to the text.

    Step 9. Wait for the lettering and additional decorations to dry completely. This is how the festive balloon painting is ready.
