Methods on Wine Glass Painting:
1. Ready the glass:
⦁ The first step is to wash the glass with some lukewarm and soapy water. Even though your glass is completely new, it is better if you wash it beforehand to clean out any dirt or dust that is sitting on your glass.
⦁ Dry out the glass properly.
⦁ Now with the help of a paper towel and rubbing alcohol clean the surface of the glass. Instead of alcohol, you can also use white vinegar as it has the same cleaning agents like rubbing alcohol. Try to remove any of the dirt, oil, soap film or even fingerprints that can mess up your painting. After you’re done with that then simply let the glass dry for 8 to 10 minutes.

2. Making Designs:
⦁ Even some of the most famous paintings in the world needed some kind of practice beforehand. Hence, don’t directly go on with your painting on the glass, instead sketch your design first on a piece of paper or a tissue paper.
⦁ Also, if you draw a design on a piece of paper, it can get inside the glass, thereby helps you in giving a clear idea on how the paint would look in reality. Also, it would be easier to look at the sketch and paint to get the desired design. Tissue papers are much better at folding so if it is good with you then go for tissue paper instead of a normal paper.
⦁ Now put your design inside the glass in such a way that you can see the design from the outside. Don’t go overboard with sketching, simple geometric designs or a delicate pattern looks equally impressive.
⦁ Now you can go ahead and sketch the design or pattern on to your glass. Use a marker first so that if you don’t like, you can easily remove it by using a nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol.
⦁ Choose the paints that you would need for your wine glass painting.
⦁ If you need corrections, you can remove the paint by using a nail polish remover. However, you need to do it quickly and not wait for the paint to completely dry off.
3. Set The Paint:
⦁ If you’re air-drying, then leave the glass dry for up to three weeks or so. Follow the instructions that are given on the paint’s label.
⦁ Another way is by heating the glass. If you have chosen a paint that needs heating then let the paint firstly dry for 24 hours before you go any further with the heating. For heating, turn your oven to 180ºC. No preheating is required in this process. So turn the oven and set the timer for twenty minutes. Or you can look up to the procedure on the paint’s label.
Therefore, these are the simple steps that you can explore to perfect your next wine glass painting. After the paint has set, you can go ahead and decorate it with some candies or confetti.
If you’re gifting it to someone, then you can put in the birthday letters and best wishes in the glass. All in all, it will be a good decorative piece for your home as well as your loved ones.
