Hole reinforcement labels, Low ball glasses


  1. Apply hole reinforcements labels to outside of glass, concentrating them more at the bottom. 
  2. Paint a thick layer of etching cream within each hole with a detail brush.  Following etching cream instructions, set aside, then rinse off cream and remove stickers.
  3. Dry glass. Use a separate detailing brush to apply dots of Metallic Gold, again, concentrating the paint towards the bottom (DO NOT apply Metallic Gold closer than 1 ¾" from top edge of glassware).
    • Tip: You can also use the tip of the brush handle to apply dots of gilding.
  4. Work one small section at a time and let it dry before turning the glass to a new section.
