DIY Glass Paint Heart Tree Directions
- Print the free printable love bird template or choose another design to print. You can also freehand your own art if you wish.
- Remove protective covering from both sides of one of the two clear plastic inserts that come with the Tolsby Frame.
- Tape the love birds to one of the clear plastic inserts. (If you make a mistake you can use the other, or you can make two designs and alternate them.)
- Use a black glass paint outline tube to trace your design.
- Allow black outline to dry for at least 24 hours.
- Use glass paint to color your design however you like. Painting with glass paint is a bit different than other paints. You want to load your brush with glass paint and dab it into the black outline to hold it. The more paint the better. If you brush it on you might not be able to see it once it dries. Make sure you use as much paint as you can for the lighter colors or they will be tough to see.
