Steps

  1. Step 1

    Clean hurricanes with glass cleaner.

  2. Step 2

    Apply stencil tape around bases and tops of hurricanes to frame areas for bands of metallic color. Cover all areas you do not wish to paint with kraft paper.

  3. Step 3

    Follow gloss spray kit instructions (which come with the kit) to mix a metallic color with the gloss enamel medium. Apply 3 to 4 thin even coats onto hurricanes. Let dry completely between coats. Repeat on all hurricanes, alternating metallic colors. Let dry, then carefully remove tape and kraft paper.

  4. Step 4

    Position stencils on hurricane and secure in place with stencil tape. Pour a small amount of each paint color in palette. Lightly load foam pouncer with a single paint color, then dab over openings in stencil. Apply a second coat of paint if necessary. Remove stencils and let paint dry. Reposition stencils and apply paint to complete your design. Work with one paint color at a time and let paint dry before layering designs or colors.

    I agree with these posts, I spent 20 mins looking for the directions to bake the glass paint. I finally found a link to plaid on line FAQ and found this:

    I bought your glass paint from Michaels - to see that I had to go on line to find instructions on how to bake it WHICH ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND ON YOUR WEBSITE. Please send me the instructions for baking the opaque glass paint. PLEASE consider making them more available on your website as I can see I am not the only one frustrated with a purchase that does not have proper instructions on the bottle like everything else!

    I have purchased the glass paint and cannot find the heat setting time on the directions or the website. I am unhappy about this because as a consumer
    I should not have to work so hard to uncover what I need to do this project.
    As MS product I do not think this does it justice this maybe an oversite but must b e posterd somewhere.
