Cheers to the New Year!

My sister-in-law asked if I could make some handpainted wine glasses for her family Christmas swap this year. I said, "Sure!" even though I'd never done it before... Ha! It turned out to be so easy and fun. I used a different glass painting technique than I've used in the past (for ornaments, etc.)... I bought some enamel paints that you can let air dry for a number of days, or you can make them permanent just by firing the finished work in your oven! (No, your glasses will not crack or explode if you follow the directions.) :)

Here are the final pieces:

The glasses for the swap.
The paint is not food-safe, so leave it away from anywhere your food will touch.

I decided to make her a set as a gift too :)

Hi Kelly,
Happy New Year to you and your
family. Thanks for sharing your
beautiful hand painted wine glasses
and 3D House. All are very lovely
and the snowmen are my favourite!
Great that you are feeling creative at such a busy time!
