How are FolkArt Enamels used?
  1. Clean glass or glazed ceramics with alcohol.

    3. Set oven temperature to 350ºF.
    4. Once temperature has reached 350ºF, allow the project to bake for 30 minutes.
    5. After 30 minutes, turn the oven off and let glass cool down completely before removing from the oven.
    6. Do not use for 72 hours.
  5. Hand wash project or clean in the top rack of your dishwasher. To learn more, please see How to Cure Painted Glass Projects
