Now for the registration letters. I'm using a method I found on YouTube: Monokote 301.

Required equipment:
  • Glass sheet
  • Windex (Original - with Ammonia-D)
  • Paper towel
  • Glad Press'n'Seal (no subsitutes)
  • Squeegee tool (credit card, etc)
  • Straight edge (if cutting straight lines)
  • Hobby knife (or razor blades) - lots of blades
  • Covering iron
  • Heat gun

1. Apply covering to glass
  • Cut a piece of covering a bit larger than the design
  • Clean the glass and coat it with Windex
  • Peel the backing off the covering
  • Apply the covering to the glass
  • Squeegee the Windex out from beneath the covering
  • Carefully dry the covering and the surrounding area

2. Apply template over covering
  • Place template at flat as possible
  • Tape both sides to glass, taking care not to cover the design

3. Cut out the design
  • Start at one end and work towards the other
  • Take your time and change blades often. Glass dulls them very quickly
