Things You'll Need

Step 1: Download, Print, and Cut out Template

Download the free template, then print and cut out the image. Don't worry about cutting it out perfectly; as long as all the critter's features are intact, you're doing it right.

Step 2: Clean the Glass with Rubbing Alcohol

Using a paper towel, wipe the entire exterior of the glass with alcohol to remove any dirt or oil. This allows the ink to adhere to the glass.

With the image facing outward, place the template inside the glass and tape it so that the face looks straight.

Step 7: Bake

Place glass in a cold oven. Set oven temperature to 200 degrees, and bake glass for 2 hours. Turn off oven; leave the glass inside and let it cool completely before removing.
