When I went to view the tutorial, I was thrilled to see the project was from Pam at P.S. I Love You Crafts.
I am in a Craft Group with her and she knows her stuff! That made me even more excited to try out this project! Thanks Pam for the inspiration!
How To Make Pretty Wine Glasses With Alcohol Ink
- Glasses of your choice-I used wine glasses and shot glasses
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Alcohol Ink Set
- Mod Podge Dishwasher Safe
Start by cleaning the glasses with rubbing alcohol. You can use as many alcohol ink colors as you want.
I decided to just use a pretty eggplant and mango-otherwise known as purple and pink!
There are just a couple of steps. Use a brush to add rubbing alcohol to the outside of the glass.
Immediately add drops of alcohol ink and swirl it around. I also used a straw to blow the ink around so it would spread out around the entire glass.
But this is completely optional.
Allow ink to dry then apply a coat of dishwasher-safe sealant. I used Mod Podge. I will definitely be trying this again on glass vases.
I would do a few things differently. I would use several colors and also use lighter colors.
I loved the pink, but it really doesn’t show as the purple takes over. I did add just pink to the stem of the wine glass and like it much better.
All in all I am happy with them.
The wine glasses have a mercury glass look to them. I went a little lighter with the shot glasses and they have a really cool water color look.

Beautiful! Love this idea! I thought alcohol inks had to be sealed ?🤷♀️

Are these actually safe to drink out of? I don't believe the modge podge is food safe?

Hi. The paint is on the outside and sealed. I made sure not to have the paint at the top of the glass where you would drink. You can tape off the top part of the glass to be extra safe.

Just wonder if the glass can be painted from the inside. And if so, what to use to keep the colors from fading due to the liquids (water, wine, etc.). Have you tried it?

Hi. I wouldn't paint the inside unless they were just going to be displayed. You can seal the glasses and hand wash so they don't fade. Hope that helps.

I am confused - your picture shows Stampin Up Inks, but they are not alcohol inks. How did they work for you?

Hi Rhonda! I’m sorry this was confusing. I used the reinkers with a tiny bit of the rubbing alcohol & it worked great. I hope that helps.
