Prepare the Glassware
Wash the glass with hot soapy water and allow to dry. Wipe the glass with a glass cleaning wipe to remove any residual soap film. This will prepare the surface for painting.
1. Load the 3/4” flat brush with Berry Wine, Engine Red, and White.
2. Dip one corner of brush into White and the other corner with Berry Wine and Engine Red (Image 2).
3. Blend brush in a back and forth movement to get enough paint in the brush (Image 3). You need to load your brush 2 or 3 times to get enough paint on your brush. You can add as many different colors as you want, but for beginners, it is best to start off with two colors.
4. Start making petals with simple stroke movements (Image 4). Paint each petal adjacent to each other. If the first coat of paint is transparent, reapply a second layer after the first coat gets fully dried.
5. Load the dotting tool (or small round brush) with Daffodil Yellow. Randomly add small dots in the center of the glass (Image 5). Let it dry completely.
6. To achieve a darker shade in the center of the glass, apply Black paint on the bottom portion of the glass (Image 6).
7. After the dots are completely dry, load the scruffy brush with Engine Red and dab on paint (Image 7).
8. Load the flat brush with Classic Green and apply to the bottom to paint the stem. If the paint is transparent, apply a second coat after the first coat gets fully dried (Image 8) and (Image 9). Painting the glass stem is optional. If the step is followed, it will give more realistic look.
How to Cure Painted Glassware
9. Air-dry the painted glass surface for 24 hours to make sure that all the paint layers have completely dried.
10. Place glass in a cool oven. Do not place it in hot oven as the glass might break due to a sudden heat change.
11. Set the temperature to 350-degree Fahrenheit and bake for 30 minutes.
12. After baking for 30 min, turn off the oven and allow the glass to cool down completely before removing from the oven.
13. Do not use finished glass for 72 hours.
Maintaining/Cleaning Your Acrylic Painted Glassware
14. Acrylic painted glassware is dishwasher safe, top shelf. However, do not soak or scrub the glass in the sink when cleaning manually.
