Before You Begin

BUT I find that the best chance of getting everything to stick comes with using rubbing alcohol. This includes craft paint, spray paint, or Mod Podge.
You’ll want to take a cotton swab or pad and clean the outside of the glass surface. This step is crucial if you want the paint to stick. Get more tips on how to paint glass here.
