This Holiday DIY is as versatile as it is charming! Debbie of My Patch of Blue Sky textures and paints a wine glass that adds an elegant twist to your stylish holiday table setting. Once the holidays are over, you can use the conversation piece again and again for gatherings large and small.
- ShimmerStone Tintable Base
- Black Pearl Metallic Paint
- Wine Glasses
- Small Paint Brush
- Frosting Kit (plastic bag and small round tip)
I recently visited the headquarters of Modern Masters and was inspired to create this holiday project by the beautiful birch trees around the property, with a winter twist. For the stem, use a small brush to add the simulated tree bark, using ShimmerStone. The ShimmerStone adheres to glass beautifully and gives a shimmery textured look and feel.
Prepare the frosting bag with ShimmerStone. I kept it the original color here but if you wanted to, you could tint the ShimmerStone to taste using color concentrates. Use the frosting bag to create texture for birch bark and also add snowflakes and stars. Have your preferred image handy to guide your artwork, if needed.
Once the Shimmerstone has dried, add a few lines of Black Pearl Metallic Paint (not shown) to further simulate the birch bark look. Let dry. Use for wine (wash by hand) or as a candleholder, with small tea lights. If using as a wine glass, we would recommend drinking out of the back area where there is no ShimmerStone. Of course, the beauty of this project is that you can customize the placement of your design from the top to suit your use of the project.
