If you do not want to paint the thickness of the base, then remove excess paint with a napkin or finger, each time after applying another layer.

We place the glasses on the drying surface for about an hour between the application of each coat of paint. To save paint and prevent it from drying out in a container, place it in a tight-fitting bag. In addition, after applying each coat of paint, brush.

The next step is very important. Place the glasses on a baking sheet with the base up in an unheated oven. Close the door and set the timer to 350 degrees. Hold the glasses in the oven for 30 minutes. Then turn off the oven and let your glasses cool completely. The product is not recommended to be washed within the next 72 hours.

Very few steps are left until the decoration of the glasses. There are many ways to moisten the rims of glasses. For example, this can be done in water using a sponge or wiping the edges with slices of fruit. In this case, we will use water. Pour some water into a separate plate and dip the rims of the glasses. After wetting the edges, dip them in chopped sweet chips.

Glasses, the instructions for which were presented above, can be used not only at a wedding. Having changed the decor, martini glasses are suitable for a beach party or for a dinner party, or maybe a bachelorette party. The inscriptions on the glasses can serve as a kind of guide for guests..

Glasses can be issued as registered «pointers» for seating guests or numbering the place of each guest, which is recommended to do on the website www.articlewedding.com. After completing the gala banquet, give glasses to each of the guests. Let such a pleasant trifle leave fond memories of your holiday.
