How do I repaint appliqued lettering on old glass Tom's cracker jar? Answered

The paint on the lettering is old and can be scraped off. I do not want to remove the plastic-looking film beneath as this is my template for
repainting.  But I do not want to risk "unsticking" this film during painting or anytime later.  Any suggestions appreciated.

Just a personal point of view but it it were mine, I would just coat all of the remaining old paint with a brush-on, clear acrylic to stabilize it and leave it at that. I feel the old, peeling look adds character to the piece.
