Fun "Ladies Night Out" Gatherings

What better way to spend an evening, than with your close friends socializing and painting on your favorite drink glasses. All you need to do is to invite your friends and fix a few of your favorite cocktails. You might even want to have a few great drink recipes prepared to fill those lovely glasses once the paint dries. You can even choose to paint pilsner beer glasses and there would not be a need for the drink recipes to be made. You know your friends, let them decide what their beverage of choice is and paint glasses to accommodate what they like.

This is an easy project that can be completed within a few hours. You really do not need to have a lot of room for the painting to be done. It really is not that messy either. It is actually pretty easy to keep the paint contained. Only a small amount of paint is needed to paint the glasses with.

The glasses are painted with acrylic enamel paint. It dries to the touch quickly and can be helped with this process by using a heat gun or blow dryer. The paint cures within 21 days if air dried, or it may be baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. The choice is yours. You decide if you have the time to allow the glasses to dry for 1 hour prior to baking them. You will need to add the preheating time to the baking time. Normally allow 50 minutes from preheating to the glasses being finished. Place them in the oven cold and remove them once completely cooled.

After the class is finished, you will walk away with the knowledge to paint other glasses and continue on creating lovely art. These glasses will make great entertaining pieces for your guests and even wonderful gift giving ideas for future occasions. Do not be afraid, just jump in and have fun with your friends!
