The Chew: How To Make Hand Painted Glasses

  1. Put three dollops of paint on a paper plate.
  2. 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.
  3. Use a Q-tip to mix each of the paint dabs separately on your plate.
  4. Dip the eraser of your pencil into the paint.
  5. Then apply it to the glass and repeat, forming a dot pattern.
  6. Move on to the next lightest shade of paint and create more dot patterns up the glass.
  7. Finally, move on to the last shade of paint and do another few rows of dot patterns.
  8. 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

  1. To set the paint, place the glasses upside down on a cookie sheet, in a cold oven.
  2. Turn the oven up to 350. Let the oven heat and bake the glasses for 30 minutes.
  3. Turn the oven off and let the glasses return to room temperature before taking them out.
  4. Clinton recommended hand washing your painted glasses.
