First, draw the stencil on a piece of paper.

Trim it and insert it into the glass, as shown in the photo. Now, holding the stencil so that it does not slip, circle it on the other side with a contour for the glass. Allow the contour to dry completely( let stand for 40-50 minutes).After that, you can start painting the picture.
