  1. Wash the glass block and wipe with rubbing alcohol to remove any oils.
  2. Place Dear Santa stamp onto a Jumbo acrylic handle. Pounce a cosmetic sponge into black paint poured onto palette paper and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Quickly pounce the loaded sponge and apply to the stamp. Stamp onto the middle of the glass block. Allow it to completely dry.
  3. Undercoat all the elements of the designs with White and allow to dry.
  4. Determine basecoating by referring to the photo.
