  1. Following the manufacturer's instructions. Position the screen in the center of the lampshade. Squirt a 1/2-inch wide line of black paint across the top of the screen. Drag the paint over the screen using the squeegee. Lift the screen and rinse. Allow the paint to dry. Using jewel glue, attach the rhinestones to the shade to highlight the design.
