Hand Painted Wine Glasses

My friends and I have started a little tradition.  Once we drop our kids off at camp, we head out to my brother's ranch for a little R 'n R.  I have the most generous brother in that he basically lets me spend the majority of the summer out here.  My friends all are petitioning to be adopted by him!  I say get in line!!
When the girls got here, I had little bags of goodies waiting for them.
Ear plugs (for shooting guns,) bug bands, flashlights and their own personalized wine glasses.
Dollar Tree wine glasses and Martha Stewart glass paint.  Gotta say I'm not overly impressed with the paint.  The Enabler first introduced me to glass paint and her brand works SO MUCH better.  I bet if she reads through this, she'll share her brand in the comments.  This paint seemed thick and did not cover all that well.  I had to do the blue several times to get it to really show up.

On the back, I added the name of the ranch and the date.  This is now our annual tradition, so we may need help in the future remembering what year we did what gifts.
A little colorful animal print on the bottom to sass them up a bit.

Oh, and I misspelled my dear, dear friend's I had to do it over...she said so.

Here's another group picture of the glasses...just threw it in because you can kind of get a glimpse of his AWESOME kitchen...simply gorgeous!!
Maybe I'll do a tour of the place for a future blog post...
I'm thinking about adding painted glasses to my Etsy store.
What do you think?  What is a good price point?

I paint glassware for gifts and I use enamel paint markers. They allow you to either have opacity or transparency depending on how you use them. I paint the glass, put them in the oven to "bake" and they come out beautifully. You may be able to put them on the top rack of the dishwasher but I always suggest washing by hand.

This is a great project! I am planning a ladies night at my house and thought this would be a lot of fun to do together. But I'm wondering, should the paint be dry before I cure it in the oven? Also, if I'm unable to find glass paint, will other types work? I'm currently living in Bangkok, Thailand so I have no idea what I'll find!

At the moment, it seems like hand painted wine and martini glasses are all the rage! And doing it yourself is definitely possible at home. In fact, painting on personalized wine glasses is a fun way to create unique, personalized, and inexpensive gifts for friends and family.
