Clean surface with alcohol. Apply paint with a synthetic brush. Allow to cure 4 days.

Not for direct contact with food. Cleans up with soap and water.
PREP, CLEAN-UP, AND FINISHING
Before painting, wash the glass in hot soapy water using a soft dishcloth. Price labels and stickers usually remove easily when soaked in hot water. Rinse any soap residue away with warm or hot water, then dry the piece with a soft, lint-free cloth or paper towel.
Handle glass carefully to keep it free of fingerprints, and use rubbing alcohol and a paper towel to remove any prints or smudges.
Clean up small imperfections in still-wet paint by using a wet brush, toothpick, or paper towel to gently wipe off the excess wet paint. To remove all wet paint from a surface, soak the item in warm water.
Correct mistakes in dry paint by using a razor blade to carefully scrape or trim off imperfections.
Allow the painted glassware to dry at least 4 days before use.
If you are combining two glass paint products with different baking times and temperatures, always use the lower temperature and time.
