INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

HELPFUL HINTS

When applying multiple coats on the glasses, do one coat on each glass. By the time fourth glass is basecoated, you can go back to first to apply additional coat.

To remove tape cleanly, use craft knife to score paint at taped edge before lifting tape.

If you are uncomfortable free-handing lettering, enlarge computer fonts to make patterns.

Glassware can be allowed to dry for 48 hours then baked in oven at 325 degrees for 30 minutes or allowed to air cure for 21 days. For best results, hand-painted glassware should be gently hand-washed.
