I know I’m a wee bit late for Valentine DIYs… I just wanted to share with you a last minute idea I had on Wednesday.
M and I both share the taste for good whisky and I new I wanted to surprise him with a nice bottle for us to share (not all that one night people, just a sip…).
And, since I am a special-glass-for-every-drink kinda girl, I just had to get some new glasses. And personnalize them. Yep.
I googled a bit to see if Sharpie would stick to clear glass as well as on porcelain. It won’t. Boooohoo. So I turned to my favorite craftstore for a solution.
I picked up Vitrail Outliner. I knew it would create an embossed look and would look cool. The only hic was that it takes 24 hours to dry and then needs to be cooked for 40 minutes. It was Wednesday night. We had dinner Thursday. Pas le temps de niaiser!
This was quite simple. I drew one tiny moustache on each glass using the tube and cleaned off the edges with the paintbrush. Then, I went to bed. (Told you it was easy…)
The next day, I hurried home to pop these cuties in the oven for 40 minutes. They had time to cool down before we finished our meal. Grrrreat timing!
M was quite surprised by both the whisky and the glasses. The tiny moustaches cracked him up. Hourra!
And I have washed the glasses twice since then and it’s holding on perfectly!
I promise that my next DIY will not involve dishware! PROMISED|
