So, after seeing so many pins and tutorials on glass painting one day i decided to paint our Wine glasses and got a sample bottle of paint.
I also got a wine glass from dollar tree and tried to practice. Trust me, I never thought I can be bad at painting basic things 😦 I cannot dare to show my first piece and embarrass myself..;-)
But then, instead of painting random on unevenly shaped glasses, I took an image and tried. I was surprised to see how well it turned out and here is how it looks.
As expected, assuming it won’t be great to share I haven’t taken any pics..:-( But I managed to make an easy picture tutorial.
Things you need :
A print out of an image of your choice
Dollar tree photo frame or any other frame.
Deco Art Glass stain
Painters tape and Scissors.
A left over scrapbook paper or any other decorative sheet/gift wrap that goes well
How you do:
Once you choose an image of choice, with painters tape stick the glass part of the photo frame.
Then, with the stain bottle slightly color the area using the picture as base. Or you can trace it with a marker and fill it with paint. If you happen to choose a detailed design put a drop of paint on the desired area and spread it with a tooth pick. That helps you to reach the corners easily.
Let it dry for at least 6 hours or dry overnight if you are impatient like me 😉
Lastly, pick a piece of decorative paper that goes well with the image and cut it to the dimensions of the photo frame.
Assemble and you have a beautiful piece of wall art that is cool & unique.
See you all soon with a new project..:-)
