DIY-ify: Striped Painted Glassware

I know we’re past Christmas, but there are still reasons to celebrate! We’ve got New Years, Valentines, and my birthday (hee) just around the corner! Let’s toast to all these good times with my Striped Painted Glassware! Earlier this year I created a separate design to be included in Make Your Day ebook my friend Chelsea and I built, but we later realized a mistake in the original pieces and needed to scrap the idea. I’ve edited and perfected this glassware and now it’s ready to share with you, and I LOVE how they turned out.

Make a set for your New Years toast, here’s how:

- Martha Stewart Glass Paint: white, gold, and blue
- new or thrifted glassware (tip: it’s hard to paint clean lines on tapered/curves glassware, I suggest straight glassware if you can find it)
- rubbing alcohol
- paint brush
- washi tape

- optional: X-acto knife


- Clean and dry your glassware. Follow this with a wipe down with rubbing alcohol and let dry

- From the top of your glasses, measure down 1 – 2 inches from the opening and wrap around a piece of washi tape. The Martha Stewart Paint is not food safe, so you need to give enough room so your mouth won’t touch the paint.

- Measure up from the base of the glass about 1/2″ and wrap a piece of washi tape around it.

- Time to tape off the vertical lines. The washi tape I used was 1/2 inch wide, so I tried to create 1/4″ – 1/2″ spaces to paint. Tip: if you use an even number of vertical taped washi strips, you will get an even number of spaces to paint. This is ideal if you are using 2 paint colors for the lines and don’t want a color to repeat. If you don’t get even lines, no worries. Just paint that extra line with gold paint. I chose to go this route.

- Use your finger to press down all the tape spots. Be sure there are no bubbles along the tape edge where paint can bleed under the tape.

- Let’s get painting! This first paint step is optional, but I like it. If you’d like a bit of gold for the undercoat (that you can see from the inside of the glass) paint 2 – 3 layers of gold paint on the vertical paint spaces (letting each coat dry about 20 minutes).

- Next up, paint a layer of white paint over all the gold. The gold paint is a bit transparent and this will help. Let this layer dry about 15 – 20 minutes.

- On every other stripe, paint 1 – 2 coats of blue paint (letting dry about 15 – 20 minutes in between coats). On the remaining white stripes, add more coats of white (if needed). Note: if you have an uneven number of stripes, paint your gold stripe now. You’ll probably need to paint 2 layers of gold. Let dry 15 – 20 minutes.

- Peeling off the washi tape can be a bit tricky. If you let the paint on the glassware dry completely, the paint may tear off when peeling off the tape. Pull the tape off with in 30 minutes of the last cost, very carefully. OR, use an x-acto knife to trace along the tape and paint line.

- When the tape is off, let the glassware dry completely. I suggest overnight. Tip: if you notice any spots the paint may have bled under the tape, you can use the tip of your x-acto knife to scrape it off.

- You have two options to make your paint job permanent. The Martha Stewart Paint instructions say you can let the pieces dry for 21 days, or bake them. In my experience baking has worked better with this paint. I haven’t had much luck with waiting 21 days, plus I’m inpatient. Hee. Here are the Martha Sterwart Paint baking instructions: “When oven curing, make sure your piece is completely dry before setting it in the oven. Be careful to not allow any painted surfaces to be resting or touching anything while in the oven and start with your piece in a cool oven before turning it up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and baking for 30 minutes. Allow your piece to cool completely before handling.”

You’re done! Give as an awesome hostess gift with some bubbly, or keep for yourself and toast to YOU for a job well done!

Happy New Year!
- Chelsey
