Yesterday I decided to pull out the glass paint from
way back in the cabinet, wipe the dust off and
paint glasses. My thing is daisies this summer..can't
get enough of
I decided to paint daisies on these two glasses.
It has probably been 3 years since I painted on
glass. Some of the paint was dry but lucky for me
the yellow, white and brown was still good.
Wipe the glasses with vinegar to remove oils and
whatever may be on not have lotion on
your hands..I hold the glass by the top and sometimes
put my hand in it to hold in place.
It took about 20 minutes to paint these two glasses.

Into a COLD oven for 30 minutes..set temp @ 325..
at the end of time turn off oven, I open the door because
I don't want to wait for the oven to get cold with the door closed 
before I can get them out.  I usually let them age for a
couple days before I clean up whatever spots are on
them...with vinegar.

A quick and easy project.  If you have never painted on
glass, give it a is very forgiving..just keep
the vinegar and cotton swab close by.
I used Delta Perm Enamel and Apple Barrel Indoor-
Outdoor gloss acrylic enamel. I prefer the gloss
paint over the satin finish. Do Not use water base
acrylic paint. Soap and water or brush cleaner can
be used to clean brushes but clean them immediately
after you finish painting.
I always wash my painted glassware by hand.
Total cost $2.00 @ at Dollar Tree.
I think I will go back and get a few more glasses.
That was fun!!
