I made this wine glass for my friend who competed in the Miss Massachusetts/USA pageant this past weekend. Sadly, she did not place. She will always be a beauty queen to me, win or lose. I wanted to do something special for her, so I made her this wine glass. I went heavy on the bling because she is a girly girl.
My son helped by drawing the crowns on with a sharpie. I just filled them in with paint. I had to use ultra fine paint brushes. I think drawing with a sharpie first when doing bigger designs is the way to go.
This glass was the hardest one I have done so far. It took the longest time to make. I had to let the colors dry in between.
I was not happy with the way I could see the glue from the gems I put on the glass. I baked it to shrink it a little. It worked. I would have hated to throw this glass away with all of the work I had put into it. Thankfully the baking of the glue did not ruin it.
I did learn a lesson to take it easy on the glue. You need just enough to make it stick and so that the gems stays on through washing.
I need to start working on a few Christmas gifts. I hope I can fit in doing some Christmas crafts in between.
Have a great Tuesday!
