Apply two or three colors of Gallery Glass paint on a stencil blank. Next, swirl the color by slightly mixing using a palette knife.  Allow to dry.  Once dry, the marbled paint can be cut into shapes using a craft knife and then placed on a glass vase or other 3D surface. The paint will cling to the surface until peeled and removed. This technique is perfect for a modern, colorful seasonal display!
  1. Select your pattern.
  2. Prepare your work surface: work on a flat surface protected with newspaper.
