Project Instructions

Step 1
Wash mugs, glasses and tray with warm, soapy water; rinse, dry. Wipe with rubbing alcohol; let dry.

Step 2
Cut apart silkscreen designs. Apply desired design to project surface, then apply paint using either the pouncer from the tool kit or a squeegee.

Pouncer: Squeeze small amount of paint onto foam plate. Dab pouncer in paint; dab a few times on plate to remove excess. Dab directly onto silkscreen until image openings have been painted. Remove and clean silkscreen.

Squeegee: Squeeze small amount of paint directly onto silkscreen. Holding squeegee at a 45° angle with light pressure, pull paint across opening of the silkscreen. Remove and clean silkscreen.

NOTE: To achieve an ombre effect (graduated color), apply the lighter color first, then the darker and blend in the center.

Step 3
Before using, glass projects must cure to ensure durability. Either air cure for 21 days, or bake to cure as follows: Place painted project in cool oven; set oven to 350°F and bake for 30 minutes. Turn off oven, allowing glass to cool completely in oven. Wait 72 hours before using.
