Project Instructions

Step 1
Begin by thoroughly washing each glass apothecary jar and lid in warm soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and dry.

Step 2
Moisten a paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe each glass piece to remove any remaining dirt, grease or soap residue. Allow to dry.

Step 3
Determine the width of the horizontal stripe desired on one of the apothecary jars and position tape around the jar.

Step 4
Position the wide swirl border silkscreen design horizontally around the middle of the apothecary jar.

Step 5
Using handled squeegee, apply Wedding Cake Frost through the silkscreen. Carefully lift the screen while paint is still wet to reveal silkscreened design. Immediately clean silkscreen under running water.

Step 6
When silkscreen design is thoroughly dry, set up Spray Paint Kit using Satin Spray Medium and Surf Frost. Spray entire apothecary jar vessel area as well as under the pedestal base and knob on lid. Allow to dry.

Step 7
Cure painted glass either by air curing for 21 days or by following the bake to cure instructions.

Step 8
Place painted glassware in cool oven. Set temperature to 350° and bake for 30 minutes. Turn oven off, keeping glassware in oven until both oven and glassware are completely cool. (Both the oven and glassware should heat up and cool down together.)

Step 9
After baking to cure allow 24 hours prior to washing on the top shelf of dishwasher.
