  4. On the front side of each pane, draw your desired picture.
  5. When you paint the reverse side, you'll need to start with colours you want to show first, such as the orange nose and black hat. Let each layer of paint dry before adding more.
  6. Once each pane is fully dry, spray a gloss sealer (Krylon spray paint works well on glass) to adhere everything.
  7. Place panes back into frame and lightly tack small finishing nails into frame around each pane.
