  1. Find a spot outdoors and cover nearby items with drop cloths to protect them from paint splatters.
  2. Clean the inside and outside of the vessel using a lint free cloth.
  3. Using a foam roller apply the Chalkboard Paint on the outside of the glass. Avoid excessive brushing or rolling. Use light, even stokes to ensure an even and the smoothest finish.
  4. The chalkboard finish is ready to be used after 3 days. Before writing, condition the surface by rubbing the side of a piece of chalk over entire area and erase.
  5. After the chalkboard labels are dry, display your project for everyone to enjoy.
