Growing up in Minnesota and Colorado I love Birch and Aspen Trees. I recently made myself some winter Aspen or Birch tree wine glasses. It was so easy and inexpensive to make. The other great thing – This glass paint works AWESOME!
Apple Barrel Multi surface Black and White Paint
Start by washing and drying the glasses. Then wipe the entire glass off with an alcohol prep pad or rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball to remove all fingerprints, oils, etc from the glass.
Paint the base and stem with the white paint.
I decided to tap the base with my paintbrush to give it some texture and hide the stroke marks better.
Start making branches up the side of the glass. There is no right or wrong way – just have fun.
Let this paint dry completely.
Next take your black paint and lightly tap little lines onto the trunk and branches. Again there is no right or wrong way to do this.
Let this dry for 1 hour.
To Bake Set the paint… Place glasses in a cool oven, set the temp to 350 degrees, bake for 30 minutes, turn off oven and let cool completely inside the oven. It’s top rack dishwasher safe after cured. I have used my glasses several times and put them in the dishwasher every time to truly test this method. I’m excited to say they’re holding up well and look as good as it did the day I painted them.
