Decide which area of the jar you want to paint. A small hint from our side: The less curvy the jar, the easier it is to decorate.
Before getting started on your glass, you should design the lettering on a piece of paper. Sketch a rectangle in the size of your desired letter design on paper and mark the middle for orientation. Add additional supporting lines for each row that you want to write in. This helps your letters to be equal in size and the words to be on the same level.
Place your lettering inside the prepared rectangle. Start lettering on paper using pencils, in order to define and test your color schemes and to see whether the sketch fits the line width of pens. Once you are done with your sketch, cut out the lettering and tape it on the jar using washi tape. This will be your drawing template.

Make sure that the surface is clean and free of dust before you start lettering on the jar. To make writing on a 3D surface easier you can stabilize your arm by creating an armrest next to the vase using books or magazines, etc.
In case of a typo wipe the ink off the jar and restart. The ink will be dry and wipe-proof after 24 hours, which allows you plenty of time for alterations.
