Tuesday Tidbits #18

Since we live in the desert I decided we needed cactus painted wine glasses. My friend in Pennsylvania gave me some but they are at the LakeHouse… So I took matters in my own hands!

I painted some!

I think they turned out pretty good!

I added a table setting around them…

They will always be special because I painted them!

Have you ever painted on glass? If so, what?

Thanks so much for enjoying our painted wine glasses with us!

Until Next Time ~Nancy

  1. Nancy, the cactus wine glasses are fabulous! You really did an outstanding job. I don’t even attempt painting on anything, an artist I am not. Love your tablescape with the fun succulent plates. Happy Tuesday dear friend!

    1. Oh Pam… I am not a painter but these came out pretty good. Painting on glass is freeing. The paint glides on easily!

      Happy Tuesday my friend and thanks for the visit!

  2. Very cool! Your tablescape looks so festive! {IF} I ever attempt such a thing, what kind of paint should I use? And what do you have to do after you paint, to cure it? Anything? Such a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for enjoying them!

      I used paint for glass I found at Hobby Lobby.
      My paint said to cure…
      place them in a cool oven. Then turn oven on to 350. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn off oven but leave glasses in oven until oven and glasses are completely cooled. Then take out. PLEASE follow what your glass paint directions say.

      I still will not put in dishwasher.

      Thank you for visiting!

    1. They came out pretty good! I am very pleased and am glad that you are as well!

      Thanks for the visit! Hope all is well with you!

  3. They turned out great!!! Painting on glass is so much fun, I like the slick surface. I saw in the comments you felt like you can’t paint on canvas, try painting on a board like ampersand. They are quite popular with artists because they don’t stretch or get damaged like canvas. They come in a range of sizes and styles just like canvases and have a smooth painting surface you might like. Keep it up!

    1. Oh Jenna… I love, love your work and I am going to follow your advice! Thank you so much for your compliment.

      And I am going to try to do more. ❤️

  4. Oh my goodness Nancy! Your glasses look professionally done. Great job! And your beautiful cacti salad plates are adorable. Many people do not realize just how pretty cacti can be. The blooms in the wild are amazingly beautiful as you and I know. Good job my friend.

    1. I am not a painting artist so when these came out so well I was sooooo pleased!! The plates are pretty …aren’t they?

      Thanks for the love!

  5. Nancy, a bang-up professional job! I have painted glasses of various sizes for three theme parties as favors — peacock, Holly Golightly (Tiffany), and Alice in Wonderland characters. Just this week, I painted 4 Dollar Tree beer pilsners with shamrocks —- because I couldn’t find any in the stores. Love that you created your own.

  6. Hey, they’re very beautiful!
    I’m not living in desert or arid place, but in tropical country (rather humid) instead. But I love cactus, that’s why I have some in my garden. I post about my Peruvian Apple Cactus when blooming here:

    And, I kind of want to make artwork with cactus theme too. Thinking of making children picture book about cactus family, with self-drawn drawing… Wish me luck! 🙂

  8. The glasses made the table setting extra beautiful!! What a wonderful job you did painting them. You’re very talented
