Tips and Tricks

  • GREEN does not require any after-treatment. After drying, it adheres to the substrate without further treatment.

How it is done:

  • Cover the work area well with paper and prepare the working materials. First cut out a suitable strip from the corrugated cardboard using a cutter knife, cutting ruler and cutting mat.
  • Then prime the corrugated board with GREEN paint. To achieve muted tones, the colours can be tinted with grey, for example. In the example, pastel blue is mixed with stone grey to achieve a subtle blue-grey. Then allow the corrugated board to dry well.
  • In the meantime, the lid of the box can also be decorated with the GREEN paint. Allow the paint to dry well.
  • Attach the dried corrugated cardboard strip to the bottom of the box with hot glue.
