  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for the paint. Notes: When applying multiple coats of paint on the glasses, do one coat on each glass. By the time you are done with the fourth glass, you can usually go back to apply the first additional coat to the first glass and so on To remove tape cleanly, use craft knife to score paint at taped edge before lifting tape. If you do not know how to make letters, and if you have a personal computer, you can open a document and then adjust the font until it is the size and shape that you want.
  • 2
    Clean glassware with rubbing alcohol and allow to dry.
  • 3
    Carafe: Tape off skewed square shape with tape. Use sponge and Razzle Berry to paint inside taped area. Repeat with light coats for opaque coverage, allowing to dry between applications. Carefully remove tape. Freehand or trace and transfer monogram of your choice inside square. Use #6 flat brush and Black to paint letter. Use stylus and White to dot letter. Use #6 flat brush and Festive Green to paint checks around square border.
  • 4
    Glasses: Tape off random square sizes to fit monograms on each glass. Use sponge to apply colors, one each, as follows: Festive Green, Calypso Blue, Razzle Berry, and Lavender. Repeat for opaque coverage, letting dry between coats. Carefully remove tape. Freehand or trace and transfer monograms on each glass. Use #6 flat brush and Black to paint letters. Dot with White.
  • 5
    When you are completely done with all your coats of paint, glassware can be allowed to dry for 48 hours then baked in oven at 325 degrees for 30 minutes or allowed to air cure for 21 days. For best results, hand-painted glassware should be gently hand-washed.
