I had a blast painting these champagne flutes for New Year's! Michael was at IKEA and these flutes, which are normally about $1 each, were on sale that day for 4/$1!!!!! Wow!!!! For that price I could afford to experiment all day with my glass paint! I used a paint that can be painted on and then baked in your home oven. After baking, the paints are dishwasher and microwave safe! To make these glasses I put some paint into small squeeze bottles and then added some thinner to the paints (the thinner is made specifically for use with the paints). I then squeezed the paint onto the glasses and let it drip down (I had the glasses upside down so that I could paint from the base of the glass to the lip). For a final touch I added some pearl outliner (also made by the same company) to add some dots to the base of each glass. I also signed my initials with a glass marker. Now that I have played around with these glasses, I am on the lookout for anything glass! I have a feeling that nothing is going to be safe in the house! (except maybe for our windows since I can't fit them in the oven ;)

Out On A Whim - Painted Champagne Flutes
Welcome to my first "Out On A Whim" Wednesday!!!! I decided that for the new year I needed to do something a little bit different - at least one day of the week :) As you may have noticed, I enjoy dabbling in all kinds of art materials - not just my Stampin' Up! supplies. So, I've decided to give myself the freedom on this blog to go "out on a whim" every Wednesday and share with you something that is not Stampin' Up! related! Sometimes I will share projects, sometimes inspiration, sometimes just something that has caught my attention. While I may incorporate a Stampin' Up! product in a project that I share, I am not putting that limitation on myself! I hope you enjoy "Out On A Whim" Wednesdays! Would love your feedback about what you think or what you would like to see!
