If you’re up for a DIY project, you might like the idea of making your own hand painted wine glasses. Do you want to have an original set of wine glasses the next time your friends come over to hang out? Follow this excellent guide by an artist Carolyn Stich and make the best hand painted wine glasses in just a couple of steps. Carolyn has a store in Holland, Michigan where she sells her amazing pieces of artwork, but she also teaches art classes both for kids and adults, in case you’re interested. Now, let’s see how you can make these glasses and enjoy the process, and we’re sure you’ll love what you get in the end.
To start with, you need to decide what kind of design you want and what type of paint you should use. And, of course, you’ll need the material itself, which includes wine glasses, Red, yellow, blue, white and black gloss enamel craft paints (add any other color you like), paint palette (if you don’t have one, some small containers will do), small paint brushes, painter’s tape, and a computer and a printer, in case your design requires that.
When you create the design that you want on your glasses, print it to be able to affix it to the glasses, which can be done using painter’s tape. You can attach the design you’ve chosen to the inside of the glasses. Next, trace over the design on the outside using a small brush. Add any other designs you want, but make sure none of them is too close to the rim of the glass to avoid coming into contact with paint when you actually use the glasses. If you want to, paint the stem of the glass, as well.
Once you’re done with painting, leave the wine glasses to dry, and after that, cure the paint, which can be done either in the air or in the oven, depending on how soon you need these best hand painted wine glasses finished and put in use. Enjoy!
