Since we are getting close to the Holidays and some of us will be needing some little but special gift for Friends, Teacher, Mailman, Etc; etc; I am reposting a post I did on March 25, I have used this before as a Sunday repost, but though that right now would be a good time to redo it, incase anyone missed it...It shows how to take a simple wine glass and make it a special treasure for someone...I made several of these last year as Christmas gifts, for couples I would make a his and hers, and then would fill them with silver bells or other Christmas candy. Next week I will post how to make the cute, but simple hats for them to wear.....
Just started dabbing the glass with the white paint, do not paint all the way to the top, you need to leave an area to drink from where there is no paint. It will take about 3 coats to cover it good. Be sure and let it dry for about an hour between each coat. Cover the stem and the foot of the glass also
Just a few ideas, but you can make any face you like on these.. use your imagination.
Once the base coat is dry, completely, totally dry, draw a face on the glass, I usually use the thin point black marker, that way I already have my black outline and all I have to do is fill in the color. Don't worry if your lines aren't exactly where you want them to be, like my left eye, I can straighten it up with a little white paint and redrawing the line.
Then using the round paint the nose orange.....
Pick up some of the pink on a dry stencil brush, wiping most of it off on a paper towel. Using a circular motion lightly touching the glass add the cheeks...do not rub hard or you'll lift the white off.
I took the liner brush and some black paint and straighten the messed up left eye and then filled in the upper eye section with white covering up the first line...wa-la..the mess up is gone...I used the liner brush and some white to draw a high lite line on the nose, added a comma stroke of white to the eyes and mouth and just a dot of white to the cheeks, add hat and he's done.You can add pine or holly leaves around the base if you like or add a ribbon. I filled mine with silver bells.
