Glass Tumblers

Instructions

Instructions for a Solid Tumbler:

1.     Prepare an area where your painted glass can dry for several hours. Work over a newspaper- covered surface.

2.     Use stencil tape to mark off an area at least 0.8 inches wide at the top of the glass.

3.     Starting at the top and working down, pour paint onto the glass in a thin, even layer, turning glass to coat evenly.

4.     When glass is completely coated with paint, allow it to dry for at least three hours. In order to allow excess paint to drip off, elevate the glass slightly by resting it on a small, raised surface. (Tip: the plastic ring inside a roll of tape or the paint bottle cap work perfectly.)

5.      Using a craft knife, score along each taped edge. Remove the tape slowly.

Instructions for a Marbelized Tumbler:

1.     Prepare an area where your painted glass can dry for several hours. Work over a newspaper- covered surface.

2.      Use stencil tape to mark off an area at least 0.8 inches wide at the top of the glass.

3.      A marbleized effect is achieved when liquid fill paints to swirl together. Using the colors of your choice, pour paint directly onto the surface of the glass in sections, turning the glass as you work and alternating colors to achieve the desired effect.

4.     Continue turning the glass to swirl paint further, if desired.

5.     Allow paint to dry for at least three hours. In order to allow excess paint to drip off, elevate the glass slightly by resting it on a small, raised surface. (Tip: the plastic ring inside a roll of tape or the paint bottle cap work perfectly.)

6.     Using a craft knife, score along each taped edge to cleanly release the tape. Remove the tape slowly.

Instructions for a Patterned Tumbler:

1.     Prepare an area where your painted glass can dry for several hours. Work over a newspaper- covered surface.

2.     Use stencil tape to mark off an area at least 0.8 inches wide at the top of the glass.

3.     Using patterning tape or contact paper, mask off portions of the glass to create the pattern of your choice.

4.      Starting at the top and working downwards, pour paint directly onto the glass in a thin, even layer, turning glass to coat evenly.

5.     When glass is completely coated with paint, allow it to dry for at least three hours. In order to allow excess paint to drip off, elevate the glass slightly by resting it on a small, raised surface. (Tip: the plastic ring inside a roll of tape, or the clear plastic cap from the paint bottle work perfectly.)

6.      Using a craft knife, score along each taped edge. Remove the tape slowly.
