Hand Painted Peacock Feather Wine Glasses Tutorial, DIY Painted Wine Glasses

I recently painted a set of peacock feather wine glasses

I used to paint on glass a lot, making decorative glass bottles
drinking glasses or decorative painting on vintage windows
 and it's a lot of fun and easy to do.

I found these great 20oz wine glasses at a local store.

Folk Art and Deco Art Glass paints
I have a bunch of different colors of glass paints on hand. 
They all require baking in the oven after curing to make them more durable.
I used both the Folk Art Enamels and the Deco Art Enamels
depending on the color I needed. 

You can combine different brands of bake-able paints, just
read the directions and if they have two different oven temps listed,
use the lower of the two and it should be fine.

A tip for painting on clear glass... your first coat is the one you are going to see
on the inside, so choose accordingly.
This shows the start of the feather and I used metallic gold for the first coat.

This shows the outside of that glass. 
After painting the metallic gold, I topped it with a yellowish tan coat and
then more metallic gold. This was so I could get the opaque look I needed
while having the pretty metallic gold showing on the inside.

I painted a turquoise round spot on top of that, followed by
 bright blue with a hint of dark purple.

When painting circles or rounded shapes, use a Filbert or Oval Wash Brush 
like the one in this photo, it makes it super simple to do.

I knew I wanted my design to sort of wrap around the glass, so
I started with the feather stem and swirled it around to the other side.

I love peacock feathers and use the design in lots of projects...

I started adding the rest of the feather using a long liner brush.
This type of  brush makes it easy to apply long strokes.

The back...

It doesn't have to be perfect, no one will be examining every stroke...
if they are, serve them another glass of wine.

I kept adding different colors of green, one was a pearlescent green.

 For the final touch, I added metallic gold.

When adding layers using glass paint, you have to make sure what you 
are painting over is dry or it will lift the paint up...don't want that.

And the inside. After curing for 24 hours, bake according to your 
paint directions for added durability.
