NOTE: Shake and prime all Opaque Glass Paint markers by pumping the tip on a clean surface until all the paint fills the tip. Continue to shake/prime markers as you use them to get the best opaque coverage.

  1. Wipe down the ornament with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel to remove any oil or dirt.

  2. Draw on the black part of the print, using a Black Opaque Glass Marker, by painting the lopsided "U" shapes all over the ornament. (Some design inspirations have been provided, but feel free to look at a photo of an actual cheetah print.) Allow to dry.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint Gold Opaque Glass Paint Marker into the center of the Black shapes. (Optional: For a more colorful ornament, paint the centers with Red, Yellow, Fuchsia, Violet, Blue, Green, and Turquoise Opaque Glass Paint Markers.) Allow to dry.
