Painting Glass

Even though I found the do if yourself's guide on 'how to paint anything' a little redundant, I was taken by the simplicity and awesomeness of their glass painting project:

The scalloped red edge adds a charming detail to the dish and is versatile enough to work perfectly into most decorating schemes! Plus it is super easy! I suppose some clueless newbie crafters might appreciate "buy glass paint to paint glass with" but I'd like to think I am more of an intermediate to advanced crafting type. Plus my new goal of becoming the next martha stewart means I need to start herding alpacas to make woven rugs out of or something right? Or maybe this project could be spiced up by me synthesizing the glass paint from wild flowers and earth minerals? Okay...not quite at that stage yet...but I do like the fruit bowl...


  1. It is a nice twist on those typically awful swirls painted on cheap wine glasses. I don't think my hand is steady enough for that craft though. Cut and paste for me!

  2. I can't find my moustache glasses. I think they're at mom and dad's house. Do you know where they are?
