    • transfer paper
    • rubbing alcohol
    • pencil

    Use soft brushes when painting on glass.

    Use the stylus to make stitch lines by dipping the tip of the stylus into fresh paint, then placing on the surface as if making a dot. Instead of lifting the stylus from the surface, quickly pull it toward you. Repeat for each stitch line. A liner brush could also be used.

    When basecoating large areas with glass paint, sponge on the first basecoat and let dry. This will allow successive coats to be brushed on evenly.

    1. Wash the plate and jar in warm, soapy water. Rinse well and let dry. Wipe each piece of glass using a paper towel with rubbing alcohol. Let dry.
    2. Trace the pattern and transfer onto the jar as instructed using the stylus and transfer paper.
    3. Base the top of the jar lid and rim of the plate with Black Tie.
    4. Base the lid knob and the center of the plate with a 2:1 mix of Chartreuse and Vanilla Shake. Save mix for later step. Let dry.
    5. Transfer the pattern to the plate center and dot with Vanilla Shake.
    6. Transfer the pattern for the scallops. Paint the scallops with Iris and dot with Blue Lagoon.
    7. Apply the stitches with Vanilla Shake and set aside to dry.
    8. Sponge the entire jar with Pumpkin Patch. Let dry
    9. Brush-on one or two more coats of Pumpkin Patch on the jar for opaque coverage, allowing the surface to dry between applications.
    10. Transfer the pattern onto the jar.
    11. Use the liner brush with Black Tie to apply the spiderweb and dots on the web around the top of the jar.
    12. Use the 1/8" flat brush with the Chartreuse/Vanilla Shake mix from step 4 to base in the squiggle around the base of the jar.
    13. Add Iris lines to the top and bottom of the squiggle.
    14. Add dots of Blue Lagoon.
    15. Use the 3/8" flat brush with Black Tie to apply the checks around the bottom of the jar.
    16. Base the outer rim of the eyes with Vanilla Shake.
    17. Base the center of the eyeballs with Blue Lagoon. Let dry.
    18. Dot the pupil with Black Tie.
    19. Use the stylus to dot highlights on the eyeball with Vanilla Shake.
    20. Apply the outline and stitches with Black Tie using the liner brush.
    21. Base the nose with Black Tie and add stitching with Vanilla Shake.
    22. Base the mouth with Vanilla Shake and let dry. Line with Black Tie.
    23. Base the spider in the center of the plate with Black Tie. Use the liner brush and Black Tie to add the string, legs, and dots for feet.
    24. Dot the eyes with Vanilla Shake, the cheeks with Pumpkin Patch, and the eyes with Blue Lagoon.
    25. Line the mouth on the spider with Vanilla Shake.
    26. Add stitches around the spider with Iris.
