A Glass Lantern with Ceramic Paint
Glass Ceramic Paint dabbed onto the lantern through a flexible stencil and then fixed in an oven. Decorated with paper cord and bells.
How to do it
Place the self-adhesive foil stencil onto the lantern. Due to the round shape of the glass, it is necessary to cut notches in the stencil.
Mix the colour using black and red glass ceramic paint. Dab on with a small foam stencil brush. Only use a small amount of paint, preventing it from getting underneath the flexible stencil. Remove the stencil immediately.
If the edge gets a little “frayed” you can rectify it with a damp brush.
When the paint is completely dry, write the text with red glass ceramic paint using the same procedure.
Dab on snow flakes and stars using white glass ceramic paint.
The glass ceramic paint is fixed in the oven at 160 degrees for 30 min.
Make tassels from paper cord.
Fasten around the lantern and tie bells onto the two ends.
