How To Care For Your Hand-Painted Decorative Wine Glasses

While the hand painting is done with much care and lots of detail, as well as baking after the painting to ensure that the paint doesn't leave the glass, there are some care tips that you should follow to ensure a long life shelf of your decorative wine glasses..

When you clean then you need to gently wash them with soapy water using a cloth or a mild sponge. Don't put them in the dishwasher because after a few times the paint will chip away and you will end up with boring, bland clear glasses instead.

Also avoid using any strong chemicals and don't keep your glasses immersed for a long time fully in the water.

In addition, you should never put these glasses in the freezer.

You can also decorate your own clear wine glasses with charms, stickers and tags

Using Charms, Stickers And Beads To Decorate Your Wine Glasses

While painting is one option to decorate your bland wine glasses, there are many other ways to do it. You might not be good at painting or might not have the patience for it. This is where accessories will be extremely helpful.

You can use a variety of wine glass charms, beads or cute stickers and 3D decorators that will glue nicely on your wine glasses.

Here are some wine glass accessories that will help you create beautiful and elegant decorative wine glasses. Have fun!

Handpainting Wine Glasses

If you are a crafty kind of person, you might want to give a shot to painting your own clear wine glasses to get a decorative wine glass effect. There is a growing trend in artisan hand painting work which can be very easily applied to wine glasses.

Please note that this is NOT a specific instruction on how to paint on glass. There are many instructions on how to paint flowers or motifs and below you can find some great videos to follow. This list is a general set of instructions on getting the decorative motif on your glass with paint.

So here are some of the basic steps to get you started with handpainting your own wine glasses. Have fun!

  1. Clean well your clear glass with rubbing alcohol. Once you've cleaned an area, avoid touching it with your fingers.
  2. Choose the paint (or paints) you want to use for your new work of art. Btw, a good paint type to start out with is enamel paint.
  3. Dip your brush into the colors.If you use only two colors, then dip each of the ends of your brush into one of the two colors selected.
  4. Start painting. For example if you are painting a flower, start with the petals. Then continue until you have the entire motif (or flower) painted on the glass.
  5. Once the painting is done, you need to clean your brush. Don't let it sitting in paint to dry as then you can throw away the brush altogether. Simply put it in a glass of water and push the brush gently from one side to the other so that the paint leaves easily.
  6. You can bake the glass in the over for extra paint durability. Place the glass in your oven, set the temperature and the time and let it stay there until the required time. Then leave it in the oven to cool off completely.

You get the best results with painting your own wine glasses if you use special panting for glass. Don't just use any paint as most of them will never stick long enough on the wine glass.
