First, paint the details or whatever will appear on the surface of the glass. This is because the final work will be seen through the glass (e.g., eyes, mouth, fruit on a tree, etc...). Let the paint dry between coats so the colours do not bleed into one another.

Ask an adult to use a razor blade to scrape away excess paint once it has dried.

Continue until you get to the final coat (the background of the picture) which will cover the glass entirely.
