    Clean the underside of the glass and fit it back into the picture frame. Lay it over your graphics and check that it is in the right position.
    Shake the liquid chalk pen well then trace the reversed text directly onto the glass. Rest your hand on a piece of cloth to stop any grease transferring onto your clean glass. If you make a mistake wipe the glass with a DRY cloth then carry on.
