Instructions

  1. Size heart pattern to fit surfaces. Place pattern under Leading Blank trace with Liquid Leading to create three heart shape outlines. Place lined paper under leading blank and trace several lines. Let dry at least 8 hours.

  3. Wash glass container and frame glass with mild soap and water. Dry and wipe with rubbing alcohol to remove any residue.
     
  4. Gently remove a heart from the Leading Blank and place on center of frame glass. Remove lead lines from leading blank, cut to size then place on frame glass to form decorative lines as desired. Place a small dot of Liquid Leading on joints where cut lead lines meet to seal. Repeat technique to add hearts and decorative lead lines on glass jar.
     
  5. Applying directly from bottle tip onto glass surface, scribble Hologram Shimmer and Crystal Clear around heart designs to create background texture.  Let dry 8-12 hours until texture is clear.
