    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • rubbing alcohol
    • sandpaper
    • sea sponge
    • 1" painter's tape
    • #1 liner brush
    • #6 shader brush
    • champagne flute
    • palette knife
    • 3/4" oval wash brush



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Clean champagne flutes thoroughly with rubbing alcohol and paper towels.
    2. Lay the glass on its side. Use an oval wash brush to apply Shimmering Silver (Metallic) to the stem of the flute. Rinse brush.
    3. Use a #6 shader brush and Glorious Gold (Metallic) to paint a stripe at the top and bottom of the stem. Rinse brush.
    4. Use painter's tape to tape about 3/4" the way down from the top of the glass, pressing the tape down with a fingertip.
    5. Place equal size puddles of Glorious Gold (Metallic) and White Crystal on the palette or plastic plate. Mix well with a palette knife.
    6. Take a small sea sponge and dampen it in the water container. Pounce it a few times on the palette or plastic plate and apply to the glass by lightly pouncing. (This gives the glass a nice transparent look.)
    7. Use a #1 liner brush and Black Gloss to paint on the words "Happy New Year" and "Celebrate". Rinse brush.
    8. Use a #6 shader brush and Shimmering Silver (Metallic) to paint the top edge of the Glorious Gold section. Paint a Shimmering Silver (Metallic) stripe below the rim of the flute. (Refer to photo for placement.)
    9. Allow to dry completely. Follow label instructions for bake times to make flutes dishwasher safe.
