INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Allow to dry between painting steps.

  1. BLUE ORNAMENT: Use tape to mask off a 6-sided area in the ornament's center.
  2. Use a cosmetic sponge to lightly tap Blue Frost around the taped-off area, covering the remainder of the ornament. Repeat application and then carefully remove tape.
  3. Use 3D White Frost Writer to make lines from point to point inside the open area, forming a 6-sided snowflake. Add lines and dots as desired. (Refer to photo.)
  4. Suspend the ornament on the ornament stand to dry well.
  5. GREEN ORNAMENT: Use tape to mask off a triangle in the ornament's center.
  6. Use a cosmetic sponge to lightly tap Green Frost around the taped-off area, covering the remainder of the ornament. Repeat application and then carefully remove tape.
  7. Beginning at the bottom of the open area, use Crystal Writer to form tear-shapes for a tree base. Continue to overlap additional rows of tear-shapes, forming a tree.
  8. Place a generous dot of Crystal Writer at the treetop. Use a toothpick to pull paint from the center out, forming a star.
  9. Suspend the ornament on the ornament stand to dry well.
  10. WHITE ORNAMENT: Use tape to mask off a snowflake of your choice or refer to photo for inspiration.
  11. Use a cosmetic sponge to lightly tap White Frost around the taped-off area, covering the remainder of the ornament. Repeat application and then carefully remove tape.
  12. Use Crystal Writer to apply dots in the center of the snowflake sections. Add other dots or embellishments as desired.
  13. Suspend the ornament on the ornament stand to dry well.

HELPFUL HINTS

When applying glass paint with a cosmetic sponge, always tap the loaded sponge on the palette or plastic plate several times before application. Multiple light coats will result in uniform frosted appearance. Heavily-loaded sponges will result in a blotchy finish.
