INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Spread out the freezer paper shiny side up. Tape down with masking tape. Pour White into a puddle onto the paper surface.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Spread the paint into a circle with the handle end of a paintbrush.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Pour a puddle of Fuchsia; dip the end of a pin/needle into the paint.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Drag the pin through the White paint puddle, starting from the outer edge toward the center. (See photo.)
    Step 3 Example
  5. Continue the process until the desired effect is achieved. (This creates veins in the monsters' eyes.)
    Step 4 Example
  6. Pour Blue into the center of the eye. Add Fuchsia on top in a ring shape. (See photo.)
    Step 5 Example
  7. Using the head of the pin, swirl the colors together to create an iris effect. (See photo.)
    Step 6 Example
  8. Create more monster eye color combinations using Green, Yellow, Orange, and Pink. Drip on Black into the center of eyes for the pupil. Add drips of White as light reflections. Allow to dry completely.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Peel the paint skin eyes off the freezer paper. If they do not peel off cleanly, allow to dry more.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Stick your favorite creations onto clean wineglasses. (TIP: if the eyes do not stick, paint the backs with glass paint and stick onto the glasses.) Clean up the surrounding glass and edges with a baby wipe.)
    Step 9 Example
  11. Draw lines around the eye shapes using a Red Glass Paint Marker. Allow to dry.
    Step 10 Example
  12. Use the pattern provided or free-hand little spiders on the eye using a Black Glass Paint Marker.
    Step 11 Example
  13. Add touch of Red to the spider.
    Step 12 Example
  14. Use a Black Marker to free-hand draw the webs on the bottoms of the glasses or trace on from the pattern provided.
    Step 13 Example
  15. Place the glasses upside down to allow paint on the bottoms to dry.
    Step 14 Example
  16. Allow to cure for four days. Follow baking instructions on glass paint bottles to make the glasses dishwasher-safe.
    Step 15 Example
