Easter is almost here everyone and although this year, Easter isn’t going to be what we all expected given everything that’s going on with Covid-19, I am not going to let that stop me from creating.
I am super excited to be sharing with you today, a new product from DecoArt — DecoArt Glass Paint. This easy-to-apply acrylic has exceptional coverage and durability and will self-level for minimal brush strokes.
These vivid glass paints are my new go-to for any glass project. Let’s jump right into the wine glasses that I painted this time.
For this project, I chose the following colours of Glass Paint:
- Soft Violet
Now, I am going to let you guys know right off the bat — I am not really an “artist” per se. I love to paint, craft DIY and all of it but I don’t draw and I certainly am not the best at painting free-hand.
I had an idea in my head of what I wanted to do, I did just need a little help from a stencil. I used my Cricut to cut out a bunny Peep stencil.
I started with Coral and I painted my first Peep. I used a soft paintbrush and painted within the stencil
I repeated the process with a new stencil and Mint Glass Paint and Soft Violet Paint.
When I removed the stencil, there were a few little spots where the paint ran under the stencil. These were super easy to remove by rubbing them with a cotton swab.
Once I had painted on the three peeps, I decided to outline them in black with the Black Glass Paint.
To outline them, I wanted more control over the paint so I actually dipped a pencil in the paint and then tranced around the bunnies.
I felt that I had more control this way, as I didn’t have a tiny paintbrush on hand. The tip of a pencil worked very well.
For the faces of the peeps, I used the end of my pencil as well.
Where the black was a little thick, I used the eraser end of a pencil to remove some of the paint. That is what I love about this paint — if you make a mistake or need to remove some of the paint it’s very easy to do so.
To add some more life and colour to my glasses, I added speckles of the Mint, Coral and Soft Violet all around the glass.
Once I was done painting my glasses, I let them cure for 4 days. To make my glasses dishwasher safe, I placed them in a cool oven and then set the temperature to 275°F. I baked them for 30 minutes and then allowed them to cool with the oven door
On the back of my wine glass, I added a cute saying. I cut this out in permanent vinyl using my Cricut and it went on perfectly even over the glass paint.
I can’t believe how cute these glasses turned out and I am so happy with the end result. The Glass Paint from DecoArt was so easy to work with — easier than any other glass paint I have worked with before.
I now have three adorable wine glasses – one for me and the other two are for my sisters. A perfect Easter gift.
Glass paint is now available at Michaels.
I hope that this project inspires you to try out DecoArt Glass Paint for yourself. I can’t wait to add a little colour and style to more glassware in my home.
If you like this project, make sure you pin it to your boards to save it for later.
