The Chew: How To Make Hand Painted Glasses
- Put three dollops of paint on a paper plate.
- Leave one dot intact. Add 1/4 portion of white paint to the second dot. Add 1/2 portion of white to the final dot.
- Use a Q-tip to mix each of the paint dabs separately on your plate.
- Dip the eraser of your pencil into the paint.
- Then apply it to the glass and repeat, forming a dot pattern.
- Move on to the next lightest shade of paint and create more dot patterns up the glass.
- Finally, move on to the last shade of paint and do another few rows of dot patterns.
- This will create a shaded effect in the pattern on your glass.
The Chew: Hand Painted Tumbler Glasses
- As another option, you can use painter’s tape to create a chevron stripe or other pattern on a tumbler.
- Then brush paint away from the tape using your makeup brush to create an inverse pattern.
- You can also use rubber bands to create a pattern of rings on your glass.
The Chew: How To Set The Paint
- To set the paint, place the glasses upside down on a cookie sheet, in a cold oven.
- Turn the oven up to 350. Let the oven heat and bake the glasses for 30 minutes.
- Turn the oven off and let the glasses return to room temperature before taking them out.
- Clinton recommended hand washing your painted glasses.
