Over the holidays, I sell a lot of hand painted glassware. They make lovely gifts and are affordable ($10-20.)
They take a good week to do a set because the vitrea and porcelaine glass paints dry out quickly in the bottles and drip. You have to let each layer dry. These I started with a Martha Stewart frost paint which added a gorgeous sheen. Then painting the translucent vitrea paints really take on a glow. After they are completed, I fire them in my oven at 320 degrees for 40 minutes. Glasses can be hand washed and paint is permanent.
