Wine Glass Painting - Creativity Rocks!

I thought it would be great to have wine glasses for each member of my family.  So, I set about to do it.

First Step - Purchase a

I picked up mine at our local dollar store.  Yay! for dollar store's.  Right?

Next, purchase some paint for glass.  I highly recommend

I love these paints.  The colors are really creamy looking.  I know
I'm going to be using these on many more projects.  Great value too.

I also purchased

These were nice and on my first experience with glass painting, I only used these.
On the second product I used the silver pen to outline.

Let the fun begin.

One more thing.  I got smart the second time around and found these
gel stickers at the dollar store.  I didn't know at the time that I would be using them for my glasses but they worked beautifully.

I chose a gel flower for my stencil and slipped it onto
the wine goblet.  Then, I outlined the flower.
(it's hard to take a picture of myself while painting. oops.)

Removed the stencil and started to fill in the design with color.
I used a brush.  This was easy and fun.  Loved it.
Isn't that a gorgeous color?

  Once they were all just how I wanted them to be I baked them in the oven.

Place the glasses into a cool oven.  Close the door and set
the temperature to 350 degree's.  Now set your timer for
30 minutes.

When my timer went off.  I turned off my oven and left the glasses in the oven.
It was time for bed.

The next morning, I woke up excited to see how my wine glasses had turned out.
I removed them from the oven.


I shined them all up to get them ready for their photo shoot.


Aren't they pretty?

Two more for my son and his girlfriend.

Here's one I made for my niece Scarlett.  Her own Princess glass.

Here's a picture of the first ones I made.  They have each of our names on the glass.

Have fun creating.
