Painted Wedding Glasses

Glass painting was definitely NOT on my to do list, however, one day it just happened and here they are: Vera's champagne glasses, painted in her wedding colors and motifs.

Her wedding actually took place in 2007 and I decorated the same glasses back then. But since I used printed paper butterflies they only lasted one night.

Here are the same glasses 4 years ago:

I promised to repair them and I have been keeping them on my to do list ever since. I wasn't really happy about the paper butterflies idea, but I didn't have a better one.

I think the seed of the glass painting idea was planted this spring when someone asked me if I could do both their invitations and matching painted glasses. I promised I would experiment with glass painting and here they are. I really love the result and I am looking forward to more playing with glass paints.
