Please take a moment to review all instructions on product packaging before beginning any project. PermEnamel™, the only air-dry paint that does not require heat setting, is polyester-based and DOES NOT mix with water. Surface preparation is very important. Clean ornaments with soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

1. Apply PermEnamel™ Surface Conditioner™ with a clean, dry brush. Let dry. Do not rinse or wipe off.
2. Slide ornament on to skewer and hang skewer on the top of a box or trash can allowing the ornament to hang free. Place paper towels in the bottom of the box or trash can to catch the paint drips. 
3. Begin squeezing your lightest color PermEnamel™ Transparent Glass Paint™ from the top of the ornament with enough paint so that it flows to the bottom of the ornament. Continue around the neck, leaving approx 1" between drips. Squeeze on the 2nd color of choice, filling in the open areas. The excess paint will drop from the ornament onto the paper towels. Add more paint as needed. When the entire area is covered and you have your desired look, pop any bubbles with a pin. Allow the ornaments to hang overnight until dry.
