Yes what he said, haha

But to be more clear.

You take them off the car and remove the bulbs, then throw them in your oven that has been preheated to 200 degrees.

Let them sit in there for about 3 or 4 minutes

Then pull them out and very carefully with a flat head screw driver pry the clear lens away from the housing.

Once you have the clear lens off the housing mask off the areas you don't want black and then hit it with some spray paint.

Then when you are done heat them up again enough to be able to push the clear lens back on the housing and maybe ad an extra touch of sealant around them.

I believe it was just a black RTV sealant found at any autoparts store.
