    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • rubbing alcohol
    • toothpicks
    • cosmetic sponge
    • fine/small round brush
    • ballpoint pen
    • wine glass
    • Contac® paper or other self-stick plastic
    • small scissors



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Wash the wine glass in warm, soapy water, rinse, and dry. (Or clean with rubbing alcohol and let dry completely.)
    2. Trace or draw one large and one small ghost shape onto the paper side of Contac paper or other self-stick plastic with a ballpoint pen. Use scissors to cut out. Retain the shapes for another project. Use the open design area as a stencil.
    3. Remove the paper backing from the self-stick plastic. Position and press the ghost stencils onto the glass.
    4. Squeeze out a puddle of White Frost onto the palette or plastic plate. Dab a cosmetic sponge into the paint and pounce on the palette or plastic plate to push the paint up into the sponge. Tap White Frost inside the open area of the stencil. Lift the stencil immediately. Repeat this application around the wine glass, alternating small and large ghosts.
    5. Use a toothpick to scratch out mouth and eye shapes on the ghosts.
    6. Use a small/fine round brush to dab on Pink Frost cheeks.
    7. Use a toothpick to dot Black Frost in eyes.
    8. Use a toothpick and White Frost to dot outlines around the ghosts.
    9. Use a Orange 3D Writer to write "BOOS" on the glass base.
