At a craft fair last week-end I saw the cutest thing to do with old wine glasses. Turn them upside down and take trim with beads on it and glue it to the edge of the base. The beads or trim will hang down towards the glass and make a nice border. On what was the bottom of the glass stem is where you set a candle. You could put anything you like inside them to make them even fancier. I think it would be a great way to use old glasses and make a fancy, inexpensive centerpiece.

I have used wine glasses as candleholders during the holiday season. At Christmas, I fill the wine glasses with rock salt and position a votive candle in the salt. I tie a Christmas ribbon around the stem; when the candle is lit, the rock salt glistens. I have some stem glasses I got from a fast food restaurant during the Christmas season with snow scenes on them; when the votive candle is lit with the rock salt in them, the snow scene really shows up. The large Brandy snifter glasses make nice candleholders also and you can embellish them also. I have used old bracelets that have the elastic strung through them to go over the stem of the wine glasses and the bracelets sit at the bottom on the base of the wine glass; very pretty effect.

I would like to paint on wine goblets with gold paint. I already have 4 of them, but if I have more people I can't use them.

What exactly do you need to know? Painting wine glasses is my new hobby, so ask away.

If you have more people, use assorted glasses. They don't have to match. I think similar sizes would be more important than matching paint.

Hobby Lobby sells a paint called Gallery Glass! It's used for making inexpensive and easy stained glass! I love it and so does my Mom!

Desperate artist here! I have some great, fun artwork I've done and would like to get in on wine and martini glasses,coasters,etc. without hand painting or baking each one! I have tried expensive waterslide decals, lazertran paper, mod podge, everything and cannot find an easy, great looking solution! I would so appreciate any feedback! The product must be somewhat waterproof, i.e. able to hand wash, etc. Thank you so much!

Check Delphi Glass ....they have a nice selection of paints that I think will work for you...I know friends that use the Pebeo paints with great success on glassware.

I bought a fine glass engraving "pen" & use it to etch designs on glasses. It is battery powered. I don't know if this tip will help you at all, but I thought I would offer it. I was thinking it you painted a design on a glass, it might be interesting to add some depth with the pen.

You can buy a glass etching solution. Do a google search for glass etching.

Try and find a sandblaster in your area. It will look just like your artwork and be permanent!

If you can't find anyone let me know. I am a sandblaster here in Eureka!

Does anyone have any new and fun ways to paint on glass, especially old wine glasses? I'm looking to put Santa and snowman faces, etc. on them. Any info would be of great help.

You will need the type of paint designed for glass. It is a special medium.

Most craft stores will have it.

Staying simple in your design will increase the charm of the picture.

If I were to receive a gift such as this, I would prefer to have an everyday design so I didn't have to put it away for the holidays. Something in grapes would be very easy to do. Or a tri-color pattern of some sort.

Be sure to paint only the outside, not the inside or the rim as most paints for glass are toxic. One brand is called Gallery Glass by Plaid. I agree with dedeswrkshop that an everyday design would probably get more use. You could always add a Xmas theme wine charm to each instead.

I recently started a job bar tending weddings at a hall, and brought home a dozen flute wine glasses that were not taken home by guests. They are not engraved, but have the bride and grooms names and wedding date printed on them. How do I safely and effectively remove the writing so that I can enjoy them myself, in my home?

What I used once, was Oven Cleaner, the old kind in a jar. It took the printing off slick. Also removed some kind of stickie paper from an Antique Glass door and it worked wonderfully. After a warm water rince, I used Vinegar last. Good luck.

I scraped writing off of some champagne glasses with one of those Red Devil type, one sided blade scrapers. It was very easy.
