Hi there! I’m so excited to show you this Fall paint project today. Now, at first glance you might think that there’s no way you’d want to paint wine goblets. A few hours ago, I felt exactly the same way, believe me.
You see, I have a little history with painting wine glasses. As in, a few years ago I painted over 100 of them for a fundraiser. Let’s just say I never wanted to paint another wine goblet again, for any reason.
But when I got Martha Stewart’s new decorative paint that works on multi surfaces, including glass, I thought I’d give painting wine goblets one more try.
And I’m so glad I did.
You can use regular acrylic craft paint on glass, but you’ll need to use a glass medium to prevent it from peeling off. And there are paints specially manufactured for glass too, but I was really happy with Martha’s paints.
You can slip the printable inside the goblet and it’ll give you a nice pattern to follow. You might want to secure it with painter’s tape too.
Guess it’s time for some stronger glasses. Eye glasses, that is.
One of the things that always bugged me about painting glass was how it looked on the inside of the glass. I usually had blotches because the paint wouldn’t cover fully in one coat.
I’d like to think that maybe I had just gotten better at painting on glass but since I haven’t painted any since 2009, it’s gotta be Martha’s paint.
I knew I wanted to add some little swirls to the pumpkin and the wheat on the base. I thought maybe I’d do the swirls in metallic gold.
Expect to see a lot of it in my Christmas tutorials. I’m just sayin’ . . .
If you’ve read my pumpkin tutorial, you’ll notice I didn’t do any shading or highlighting here. I didn’t think it needed it because the brushstrokes on glass become the detail.
