Teacup window illustrations

Did some window fitting work for John Walsh this evening, over at teacup cafe in the Northern Quarter. Emma Brown and Nia Banwell did some lovely illustrations on the main window whilst me and Kat worked on the inverted lettering above the door. We did the outline of the lettering with a print to trace from pasted on the other side of the window, although we did have some coverage issues. The poska pens were giving a very streaky effect as you would expect. Solution? We squeezed lots of ink out of the pens onto a tray and using a roller, smoothed over the scratchiness of the original pen coverage - ace. (thanks to Gary for the tip)
