Supplies you’ll need

This project only requires a few supplies, and I bet you already have all but one!

Plain champagne flutes. One of the reasons I love this project is because you can always find a pair or set of champagne flutes at your local thrift store! Give them a good wash and they’ll be ready to go. Alternatively, this project would look great with Psalms have no stem Or a Modern looking glass.

Liquid gilding or liquid papers. Liquid gilding is one of my favorite craft materials! It gives a polished look to any project.

Small wooden dowel. No need to buy these if you already have something at home that can work! A pencil eraser will also work. You are looking for something round that is about 1/4 inch wide.

Nail polish remover And Cotton swabs. These are optional and can be used to clean up any stains or small drips.

How to Make Gold Dotted Champagne Flutes

Time allotment: 20 minutes

  1. Start with a clean, dry surface on the outside of the glasses.
  2. Dip the end of the wooden dowel in liquid gilding. Be careful not to leave too much excess paint on the dowel, as it will slide on the glass and ruin the polka dot look. I recommend trying a few test spots on a piece of cardboard or scratch paper.
  3. Gently press the end of the dowel onto the glass, ensuring the paint is applied evenly.
  4. Continue in this manner, making the dots in the pattern you prefer. I wanted it to be heavier at the bottom and lighter at the top. Whatever you decide to do, make sure to leave the top of the cup uncoated, because you don’t want paint to remain in the area where you will be drinking.
  5. Once finished, allow the paint to dry completely.

Special tips and tricks to make your paint perfect

I’ve found it’s best to do one section of glass and let it dry a bit before moving on to the next section. This way, you will ensure that the paint does not bleed while rotating the glass.

The paint dries quickly, especially if you put it under a fan for a few seconds or gently stroke it.

In a pinch, if the paint gets dirty, you can quickly clean it up with nail polish remover and a cotton swab. Just make sure you get it while it’s still wet.

Leave the paint to dry for a few hours or according to the instructions on your package.

These glasses will only be hand washed after use!
