Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for the paint. Notes: When applying multiple coats of paint on the glasses, do one coat on each glass. By the time you are done with the fourth glass, you can usually go back to apply the first additional coat to the first glass and so on To remove tape cleanly, use craft knife to score paint at taped edge before lifting tape. If you do not know how to make letters, and if you have a personal computer, you can open a document and then adjust the font until it is the size and shape that you want.

    Begin by thoroughly washing each tin pail in warm soapy water. Rinse well and dry. Moisten a paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe each tin pail to remove any remaining dirt, grease or soap residue. Allow to dry.
