    Step 1 Example
  3. Position the Between the Lines stencils on the decanters to spell out "BAR" and secure with tape.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use a cosmetic sponge to tap Glass Paints into the open stencil areas: Use Turquoise for "B"; Coral for "A"; and Mint for "R". Let dry completely.
    Step 3 Example
