Here's another idea I just had to try!! The original pin is HERE. I also checked out the tutorial to see if there were any additional instructions, but it seemed fairly straightforward. Just dot acrylic paints on a glass, put into a cold oven and heat to 200* for a half hour, then let cool in the oven. This is the picture that I used as a guide.
I did a couple of votive cups using the paint pens I had to make the dots. I should have overlapped them more but I didn't.
Then I stopped at the dollar store and picked up a couple of wine glasses and used another Pinterest idea of using a pencil eraser to dot the paint on and it worked pretty well to make even circles.
This was only a semi-win because they don't pass the washing test. While I'm sure people would use care when hand washing, because let's face it, the outside of a wine glass doesn't get so filthy that it needs to be scrubbed, the paint dots peel off easily. I also don't like how the paint dried dull and not shiny. There has to be a better way to seal the paint and/or make it shiny. Maybe I need different paints because all my acrylics dry dull. I have several friends interested in buying these so I'd like to find a fix as soon as possible. I'm open to ideas! Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
