• Personalized Wine & Champagne Glasses

    Reverse Tightwadding- What's your splurge?-wineglass1.jpg Create your own Elegant Personalized Wine and Champagne glasses in under 15 minutes. These beautiful glasses make a perfect gift basket addition, or a lovely way to ring in the new Year!

    You'll Need:

    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)**
    Small spouncer***
    Stencils (optional)

    Carefully tape the rim of the glass, leaving as much headspace as you'd prefer, depending on your design. Reverse Tightwadding- What's your splurge?-goblets1.jpg

    Using a spouncer, 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

    Bake method
    : 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!

    My Notes:
    ** 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 spouncer, 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.
