Wine or Champagne Glasses (I got mine at the dollar store for. . . . you guessed it, a Dollar!)
Martha Stewart Glitter Paint (whatever color you like)**
Carefully tape the rim of the glass, leaving as much headspace as you'd prefer, depending on your design.
Using a pouncer, dab paint heavily over the area you want covered. You may need to add more than one coat of paint, (I used 3 coats of the pink due to it's lightness).
A hair dryer works wonderfully to dry the paint faster if you're as impatient as I am. Once it's dry, peel off your lettering and tape & then cure your glasses.
Curing the Glasses before use:
There are two methods for curing the Glasses
: After drying for 1 hour, place in cool oven. Set temp to 350 degrees F and bake for 30 min. (Glass must heat gradually) After 30 min turn the oven off. Let glass cool completely in oven. Donít use for 72 hours.
Air dry method:
it will cure after 21 days and it will be dishwasher top-shelf safe!
** The MS glitter paint is available at most hobby/craft stores, such as Michaels and costs about $2.50 per bottle. I prefer this particular brand because I KNOW that it "cures" properly and will create a dishwasher safe product. If using other untested brands of paint, I recommend hand washing only.
*** A Pouncer, for those of you that don't spend every moment of your life crafting, dreaming of crafting or pre-planning your next craft project, is a small piece of foam that is flat and is used for stenciling.
