  1. Hi there! Can you tell me if you spray the paint/water on the inside or the outside of the glass? Thank you so much!

  2. Help. I can’t find the spray at Michaels or Joanne’s

  3. I was wondering if it can be sprayed with clear coat, or if the finish will last a long time.
    Thanks for showing us!
