Hello friends! Did you see the first ever Facebook live I did showing these fun hand painted wine glasses? Despite spilling my drink in the first three minutes, it went pretty well. If you missed it and want to check it out, it’s shared in this post as well.
This is my second time painting on wine glasses. The first time I used alcohol ink, and while I was happy with the outcome, they were not easy to paint.
These polka dot painted wine glasses were so easy! Don’t forget to add wine glass charms. This new glass paint from DecoArt comes in ten vivid colors and is water-based for easy clean-up. I’ll show you the quick tutorial and then shares some tips about the glass paint, now available at Michael’s.
Supplies Needed For DIY Hand Painted Wine Glasses
- DecoArt Glass Paint – I used navy, white and turquoise
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Wine Glasses
Clean the glass with rubbing alcohol to remove any fingerprints or dust.
Use a q-tip to dab paint onto the glass starting at the bottom. It’s best to use one color to start. It’s important not to add paint at the top of the glass, as it can’t come in contact with your mouth. I stopped about 3/4 of the way.
Choose a second color and apply it to the glass with another q-tip. You can add the dots close together, or space them out like I did. Or be a rebel and have them connect!
I chose to use three colors, so continue to add polka dots with your final color choice.
Allow the paint to cure at least four hours, or overnight to be safe. See how easy that was?
To make the paint top shelf dishwasher safe, it is necessary to bake them in the oven. Set the oven temperature to 275 degrees and bake for thirty minutes.
If you are just going to hand wash them, it is not necessary to bake them. But it may take a full four days for the paint to cure, so just be careful washing them.
The glass pitcher that you see was a thrift store find. I couldn’t resist adding glass paint to that as well. I thought this would be so cute to serve at an outdoor picnic or barbecue.
