I came across a fabulous technique at Vickey Barone’s blog for dip dying glass. This craft tutorial is going to teach you how to make 2 types of Diy Dyed Frosted Tumblers, but you can use these techniques on many other glass objects such as wine glasses, bowls, votives etc. that will look amazing! I’m sure you will think of many other uses for this technique to add a splash of color to your home decor.
I’m always looking for ways to add artistic flair to my home and patio and these DIY Frosted Tumblers will look great for parties and entertaining instead of using plain glassware. I am excited to show you this craft project so let’s get started!
What you will need:
- glass tumblers
- rubbing alcohol
- painter’s tape,
- a foam pouncer,
- translucent frost glass paint (Martha Stewart ‘Beach Glass’ color was used)
Begin by using the rubbing alcohol to clean your glass really well to remove any dust or debris and let it dry.
Use the painter’s tape to section off the area you want to paint. Be sure to press the tape down well, to seal all the edges and remove all air bubbles.
Dip your foam pouncer into the frost paint and begin painting your selected area using up and down strokes. Let it dry for 2 hours and apply a 2nd coat.
Once the 2nd coat is applied, let them sit overnight to dry then carefully peel off the tape.
Follow Martha Stewart’s Directions for Baking and Curing Frost Translucent Glass Paint: Paint is permanent after air drying 21 days or can be baked to expedite permanence. Bake method: Let project air dry 1 hour, place in cool oven. Set temperature to 350 degrees. Once oven reaches 350 degrees, bake for 30 minutes (glass must heat gradually). After 30 minutes, turn oven off. Let glass cool completely in oven. Wait 72 hours before using. (source)
