What you will need:
- Wine glasses
- Sparkles (I prefer to use fine sparkles)
- Sponge brushes
- Painters tape
- Mod Podge
- *optional – Stickers
For this project I used a .5oz (15gm) bottle of sparkles.
First start by thoroughly cleaning your wine glasses. If they are not clean the mod podge and sparkles won’t stick properly. Now tape off the rim of the glass with the painter’s tape. You want to leave enough room for someone to comfortable drink out of it.
At this point you can place any stickers you want onto the wine glass to achieve your desired look.
Now you can start applying mod podge. I suggest putting a couple table spoons into a dish, mod podge tends to dry out fast. Apply a coat of mod podge to the desired area.
As soon as you have finished apply mod podge coat your glass with sparkles. Do this over a bowl or a piece of paper. You will most likely need to reuse the poured sparkles.
Important: Take off the stickers and painters tape off after the first coat. If you let it fully dry with the stickers on you will have trouble pulling them off. It may wreck your glass.
Once you have completely coated glass shake off excess. Let the glass sit for 2-3 hours before applying a second coat. I usually use 2 coats per colour.
If you want to do multiple colours or different designs, you will need to do it in layers. Complete one colour before you start a second colour. If you want to do one like the blood drip just put some mod podge into a squeeze bottle and let it naturally drip down the glass. This only needed one coat of red sparkles.
To finish off the glass add 1 – 2 coats of mod podge to seal the sparkles. I have used dishwasher safe mod podge as a sealer before and it holds up amazingly in the dishwasher but it does take away from the sparkle. It is also important to let your glass cure for 20-30 days before use.
If anybody has a better sealer to use let me know in the comments. Let me know what you think of the craft and how it worked for you.
Keep clam and craft on!!
P.S. I don’t have a picture of the finished product because i didn’t take my own advice about the stickers. I let it dry with the stickers on and when i tried to take them off it completely destroyed the glass.
