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.
  3. Compare the size of your desired application surface to that of your planned design.
  4. Cut out or copy the pattern from your pattern sheet. For ease, cut to separate patterns from a large pattern sheet.
