A note on how to paint wine glasses: It’ll only take you 30 minutes to paint your wine glasses, BUT they have to dry for four days, bake for 30 minutes, and then cool. So while this is an easy DIY project with not much “hands on” time, it isn’t technically quick.
1. Wipe down the surface of your wine glasses with rubbing alcohol
2. Allow to dry
3. Turn glasses upside down to paint
4. Add gold, silver, and black paint to your paint tray
5. Take a q-tip, lightly dab it in the black paint, and begin dotting your wine glass
Note: Do not put any paint inside the wine glass
Tip: To achieve the look you see here, place more dots on the bottom of your glass and just a few up top
6. Repeat step 5 with your gold and silver paint
7. Set your glasses aside and let them dry for 4 days (yes, seriously, 4 days)
8. AFTER 4 DAYS – Bake your glasses at 325 degrees in a non preheated oven for 30 minutes
9. Turn the oven off, open the door, and allow the glasses to cool before removing them
10. Once cooled to room temperature your glasses are ready
Note: These wine glasses are dishwasher safe as long as you followed the steps in this How to Paint Wine Glasses article.
See, learning how to paint wine glasses wasn’t hard at all!
Tip: Customize your wine glass by swapping out the back, gold, and silver paint for your favorite colors. In fact, feel free to share your color ideas in the comments.
