Here’s a pretty way to dress up your glasses for the big New Year’s Eve celebration. They sparkle and shine as the lights bounces off the glitter drips. Your guests will love them! A fun way to usher in the new year with friends.
FYI – air drying is 21 days HOWEVER you can still use these once they are dry to the touch. Just don’t put them in the dishwasher until they are cured. You can carefully rinse them out and let them air dry. :)
I used [amazon_link id="B008PY3BL8" target="_blank" ]plastic champaign glasses[/amazon_link] for this project and it worked great! You can certainly use glass, but plastic is a lot less expensive, especially if you plan to make several.
Turn glasses upside down on work surface. Using the Crystal paint, add one drop at a time around the bottom of the glass near the edge.
Keep turning the glass and adding drops, one at a time, on top of the other drops until it stars to dribble down the side of the glass.
Do not over do it, you only want the drips to go about half way down the glass.
Use the handle end of a paintbrush dipped in the gloss enamel paints to ad dots in between the Crystal drips. Make some of the dots large and some small, alternating colors throughout the design.
Add a few tiny dots going up toward the rim of the glass, staying about 2-inches from the actual rim. Allow to dry and follow directions on bottle for curing (usually 21 days air dry or can be baked after 48 hours of air drying).
Hand washing with a soft cloth or top dishwasher rack is best!
