Crafting Tip

If you already have a bunch of regular acrylic paints, instead of buying enamels, you can add this enamel medium to your regular acrylics to make them suitable for glass.

How to Paint Wine Glasses:

2 painted wine glasses

  1. Wash the glasses and let them dry. Rub alcohol or vinegar on the surface to be sure it’s totally clean. Let dry.
  2. Layer a couple strips of blue tape on wax paper until it’s wider than your heart cookie cutter. Trace the heart on the blue tape with the marker and cut out. Peel off of the wax paper and stick the tape heart to the side of the glass. Make a heart for each glass you are painting.

  1. Next, paint with the acrylic enamels. Make different size dots using the non-brush end of paintbrushes. For larger dots, dip the eraser of a pencil in the paint. Make a mistake? Just wipe it off right away with a paper towel or Q-Tip. For best results, let each color dry before adding the next color.
  2. Let the paint set and remove the blue tape. If any paint escaped into the heart area, use a Q-Tip to remove.
