so I go the great idea to try my hand at handpainting wine glasses for my bridesmaids and to glue swarovski crystal flatbacks on a champagne glass for myself. I tried it out using a glass paint pen and some swarovski flatbacks on some test glasses I got at goodwill. One glass has swarovski crystals and the other does not.
I’m going to practice on some cheapie champagne glasses next, to get used to the curve and where to place the crystals. I want subtle bling for the bridesmaids and some serious glitter-effect for my champagne glass….
please let me know what you think!

Instead of painting dots on, you could use this technique to splatter them on. It would look nicer and delicate.

Thanks ladies! I started working on my swarovski crystallized champagne flute, and I’m not sure if I like it! I like the job I did on these two test glasses more… Sigh.

you did a great job how will you seal them so they paint and stones don’t fall off?

@mishagirls79: instructions on the paint pen says to oven bake them. which frankly gives me nightmares of glass shattering, lol!
the crystals are another story… I think due to the crystals they won’t be able to put these into the dishwasher, but handwashing very carefully should be okay. On the next test run, I’m going to bake the paint first and apply the crystals last so they don’t accidently melt.

These are nice, but I like the one without the crystals more. Honestly, I’m just not huge on crystals, but the main thing is that they’d be a pain in the butt to wash, and the glue and the flat-backed nature of the crystals means they stick out a bit awkwardly.
Your painting is so cute; I’d just stick with that. Maybe you can get some paint that’s more sparkly or iridescent if you want them to still be shiny?
