DIY Rainbow Fish/Mermaid Wine Glasses

Sparkling Moscato in my new glass!

I’m a total wino, that’s no shocker to the world. Anyone who knows me personally knows I’m always talking about some new wine i’ve tried, my favorites or my desire to be a super wine connoisseur … I’m still working on that. 

Anyways, I’ve been dying to make some new wine glasses… and by make I mean decorate… I’m not in the business of glass blowing, though I think that might be interesting.

So I made some matching wine glasses! Check them out!

Again, use enamel paint! It works SO SO SO much better! 🙂

After a full round of the four colors, I went through and used a smaller sponge brush for the remaining rows. The circles, or scales, were getting rather smooshed, I wanted it to look more scaly.

I decided to bake them so that I can use the glasses and then wash them, hand was only, of course. To bake the glasses, stick them in a cool oven and turn the oven on to 350 degrees (F) and then cook for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes, turn off oven and let the glasses cool inside. Once their cool, you can take them out and use them! The paint is pretty secure! And while I like to hand wash my wine glasses, you can place them in the dishwasher.

What do you think? On the upside of life, everything seems to be going really well with me. For a while I went through a rough patch, but things are falling into place and I’m feeling very content right now. The apartment search is underway and have two places in mind currently! I can’t wait to have my own place, it’s going to be a DIY cavern! And of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a baby! … Of the four legged variety of course! I’m looking to adopt a medium-sized pup once I get settled.

All is well and hope it is with you all too! The summer is almost over, I hope you are enjoying it!!

    Hi, I have been painting glassware to sell..well at the beginning of my “business” I hadn’t known if they would last in a dishwasher or not. So I found an acrylic spray sealer to put on after the baking process. Well, sadly, one of my friends that I’d painted a mug for had a relative put their mug in the dishwasher not knowing it may not last..it was ruined…so how this paint is dishwasher safe just from baking alone is beyond me. I use this exact paint!

      I only just had one of my mermaid glasses paint chip, four years later. I wonder if it’s because I tend not to drink wine and thus use the wine glass as often as I do coffee mugs. Additionally, the base is different, usually ceramics for mugs while I tend to use glass with the paint.
