1. Before you begin, take the 12 inch glass blanks in various colors and score and cut into 9 separate 4 inch squares. To make a set of four, you'll need 4 clear 4 inch squares and 4 4 inch squares in assorted colors.
2. Once you've chosen your stencil, arrange on one of the 4 inch clear square blanks. Using a fine tip Sharpie, trace the outline of the design onto your glass. Lift the stencil off the piece, and repeat on three other clear square blanks.
3. Attach a fine detail writer tip to a Black Glassline pen. Outline the design of the Crafter's Workshop stencil with the Glassline pen, being cahreful to not let the ink get too thick. If you wish, you may use a fine detail brush and paint the outlines directly onto the glass blank.
4. Allow the Glassline to dry naturally, or use a blowdryer on a very low setting. It's important to not try to dry the outline too quickly, as it may cause the Glassline paint to crack.
5. Once dry, fill the area inside of the outlines with a thin layer of Klyr-Fire glue. Using the tapered end of a straw or a wooden skewer, move White Opal Fine Frit into place on top of your Klyr-Fire outlines.
6. After applying frit, spritz with hairspray to secure frit. Cahrefully place a piece of colored glass on top of the frit design.
7. Place your hands on both sides of the project and cahrefully flip upside down so that the clear glass is facing up. From top to bottom, the order of the project should be : Clear Glass, Glassline, Frit layer, Colored Glass Blank.
8. Fire using the firing schedule provided in the PDF.
