Wine Glass Painting can be a fun and interesting art to develop. Once you learn the skill and have mastered it, soon you will be wine glass painting all year round – maybe even doing it as a business. While it may look easy, it is a very delicate and time-consuming skill to master. However, if you have a love for it, the right paint for glass, and a strong desire to learn, here are a few steps you can take to do it yourself.
- Choose the glass you would like to work with. Ensure it is well washed, cleaned off with mentholated spirit, and would not break easily under pressure.
- Cover the top of the glass with adhesive tape.
- Sketch out on a sheet of paper the painting you desire to be on the glass.
- Now sketch your drawing on the glass.
- When choosing your paint you have two choices – enamels or acrylics.
- Have your paint, glass, and brush ready on hand in a clean and dry area for you to work. Make sure you have a plate, board, or palette of some kind to spread your paint on and mix before applying to the glass.
- Do not use water to clean your brush in between painting. Paper towels will do just fine.
- The last place you will paint is the base of the glass then allow it to dry for one hour.
- Put your oven at 350 degrees and bake your glass so that the paint will fully cure in about 3 weeks. Make sure you time your glass for half an hour immediately after placing it in the cold, lighted oven.
- Handle your glass with care and do not allow it to soak in water.
- Along with these steps here are 20 Painted Wine Glass ideas to try this season.
