Instructions

  1. Using a Bristle Brush, apply (2) coats of Glitter paint to the outside of the glass. Be generous with the glitter paint by dabbing large amounts, as opposed to brushing. Let each coat dry completely before applying another layer.
  2. Using a Brush, apply 1-2 coats of Metallic paint on top of the Glitter paint layer. This should result in an opaque gold layer.
  3. Finally, using another Brush, apply 1-2 coats of Lake Fog on top of the Metallic paint layer, resulting in an opaque coat with no gold showing through.
  4. Place a votive candle inside and enjoy the sparkle!
