Surface Preparation:

  1. Remove price stickers and wash glassware in warm soapy water. Dry.
  2. Wipe glass surface with alcohol. Plate Painting Instructions: NOTE: The rim of the plate is painted on the back side of the plate in a reverse glass method. Everything that you see closest to you such as the stripes and dots will be painted first. The black basecoat will be painted last.
  3. Stripes – Begin by measuring to divide the plate into quarter sections.
  4. Load the No. 12 Flat Brush with Engine Red, paint four red stripes, one in each quarter section. Paint four more stripes next to the Engine Red allowing a small blank border between the remaining color stripes. Load the same brush one at a time and paint Calypso Sky, Pure Orange, Hauser Green, and Purple Lilac stripes. Allow to dry.
  5. Reapply colors until stripes are opaque.
  6. Polka Dots – Load the 1/4" Detail Painter with Engine Red and paint 4 – 5 dots in each quarter section. Using same size Detail Painter, continue painting additional polka dots using Calypso Sky, Pure Orange, Hauser Green, and Purple Lilac. Allow to dry. Reapply paint until dots are opaque.
  7. Basecoat – After dots and stripes are completely dry, load the 3/4” Flat Brush with Licorice. Paint over the dots and stripes around the rim. Allow to dry, and reapply if needed.

Stem Painting Instructions:

  1. Stripes – Load the No. 12 Flat Brush with Purple Lilac and paint a band around the stem. Allow to dry.
  2. Continue painting stripes around the stem alternating Purple Lilac, Engine Red, Calypso Sky, Pure Orange and Forest Moss. Allow to dry and reapply if needed.
  3. Load the No. 2 Script Liner Brush with Licorice and paint black line between each color stripe. Allow to dry.
  4. Bowl of Glass – Polka Dot Flowers – Paint polka dots of each color around the outside of the glass using 1/4” Detail Painter. NOTE: Do not paint designs within the top 1” of the glass rim. Reapply color and allow drying.
  5. Load the No. 2 Script Liner Brush with Licorice. Paint daisy petals around each polka dot. Add Licorice dots around the color center.
  6. Still using the No. 2 Script Liner Brush loaded with Licorice, personalize the glass with a name, phrase, Happy Birthday, or simply “Celebrate” as our glass was painted.
  7. Polka Dot Base – Paint the base of the stem the same as the rim of the plate. Paint the polka dots in a variety of colors first. When dry, basecoat paint Licorice over the dry polka dots.

Finishing Touches –

  1. Sign your name if desired and allow drying.
  2. To cure the paint follow the instructions on How to Cure Painted Glass Projects.
