Making Your Own Hand Painted Wine Glasses At Home

Make your own hand-painted wine glasses using this easy DIY guide. Grab a clean q-tip and apply your colored paint! This is my first time painting on wine glasses since the first time using alcohol ink. The first time I used colored paint, a large batch of glass was not that successful, so they were slightly more difficult to paint.

For the second painting, I used a very small amount of colored paint on each one of the wine glasses and spread it evenly on the surface. Next, I took several different pictures of wine flowing from one glass to another out on the table. I placed the glass nearest to the window on the paper in front of the wine. Then I took another photo of a bottle of wine on the other glass and moved it to the front and back.

I let the paintings dry overnight. In the morning, I removed the paint and cleaned the glassware. To get the air-dry time, set the pot on a burner with about two inches of water in the bottom; once you have it well-ventilated, place the pot in the oven for at least eight hours.

If you are afraid of splatters or spills on your hand, you can always use alcohol on your hands before you start the polka dot wine glass painting. Alcohol is safe, all-natural, and good for your hand. After the alcohol evaporates, leave your paint on for about twenty-four hours and then wash it with warm water and soap.

If you are painting your hand-painted wine glasses yourself, then the process would be similar, but you would need some help. First, you need to have a hot oven. Place your baking soda in the preheated oven and let the soda melt on the top of the oven. Then place the wine glass in the hot oven and make sure that the rack is at the lowest temperature.

If you do not want to use an oven, you could also use your microwave. Take your paint and chipboard. Get out the knife and cut the paint into the shape of a circle. Then place the wine glass in the microwave oven and set the timer to a few minutes. After waiting until the timer says ten seconds, you could take it out of the oven and slice off the polka dot design by using your knife or your hand.

Things To Know

Bottom Line

You can use the glass cleaner’s lid to spread the melted paint all over the surface of the glass without having to clean it thoroughly.
