How to Draw with Sharpies

Got sunglasses? Bored of the plain facade that frame your face? Customise them! All it needs is; the want to do it and a vague idea of what you want to create along with some Sharpies.

At Beard our job is to share our creativity.

On a daily grind we do a lot more than just customise things, but we never shy away from the satisfaction to make something unique by just using simple things. It’s a great way to get our personality onto our merchandise that we either sell in our shop or do great give aways with.

We chose the classic Wayfarer sunglasses as they have the biggest surface area to get creative on. After a few scribbles in the book and inspired by a doodle from last week Rowena started her unique crisp abstract pattern design Dave took to wanting to do a Roy Lichtenstein Whaam! style design and got straight into getting the sharpies out.

It’s amazing how two people can come up with two uniquely different ways to do something. Thats what we’re really about, pushing ourselves in lots of different ways and using everyones skills either individually or pulling together as a collective new. Customising something is a good outlet for us to express something new which isn’t in the context of someone else’s brief.

How to Make

1. Buy a plain pair of sunglasses with a large area to work on Sharpies were an amazing tool to use on the glasses as they were easy to control and quickly dried to make a permanent decoration. The colours stayed vibrant and the edges are crisp.

2. Doodle down or find the design you want to copy or use.

3. Whilst using the pens make sure to hold the frame carefully, particularly if you want to draw all the way around the them as it may still be slightly wet.

If you’re after a free hand look work faster to create a loose design.

4. Leave the glasses to dry overnight to allow the Sharpie to dry fully.
