Set up a spray area by covering a table or other work surface with newspaper. It helps to place an extra smaller piece of newspaper under each individual votive that you can use to rotate the individual votive while you spray. This is particularly useful if you are unable to move around your work surface freely.
Insert newspaper inside the votive candle to prevent overspray of the Krylon® Frosted Glass Finish from entering the main portion of the votive.
Shake Krylon® Frosted Glass Finish for 1-2 minutes before spraying. Hold can 10”-12” away from surface spraying in a sweeping motion, side-to-side with slight overlap.
Starting at the top of the votive, begin spraying several light coats of Krylon® Frosted Glass Finish on the edge of each votive. It is not necessary to saturate the edge as the idea is to create a "disappearing" gradation of white to add to the ghostly illusion. Let dry completely for 15 minutes.
Turn the votives upside down. Spray several light coats of Krylon® COLORmaxx™ in Flat White on the bottoms of the votives until the coverage is solid while concentrating on blending the white seamlessly with the frosted glass. Let dry completely.
Spray entire exterior of all the vases with Krylon® Glowz® in White so that when your votives are not lit, they will still glow-in-the-dark, welcoming dusk. Let dry completely.
Once fully dry, flip the votives right-side up. Finally, freehand facial features (eyes and mouths) with Krylon® Short Cuts® in Gloss Black to give each ghost a personality!
