Mommy’s Sippy Cup

Is it strange that even though my husband had an unexpected day off and was home to help out today… I felt more stressed than normal?  He helps a lot and I want to be sure that I am giving him credit for that but, it seems as though it’s one more person to take care of despite the fact that he is a fully capable adult.  Anyway– I made this wine-cup a week or two ago and tonight was the first time I actually used it :)  It is a little rough around the edges but I figure after a few glasses of wine that I wont be able to notice… or simply wont care lol.

There are some instructions on how to paint a wine glass and here is the run down:

-clean your wine glass with rubbing alcohol and allow to dry completely

-Trace your design using a fine tip sharpee (or free hand it if your art skills are good enough)

-Use enamel paint to apply your design

-Allow it to dry overnight

-Place the glass upside down on a foil lined cookie sheet and place in an unheated oven.  Once the glass is inside, THEN begin to heat the oven to 325°

-Leave the glass in the oven for 10 minutes (while the oven is in the process of heating) and then turn the oven off once the 10 minutes are up.  Allow the glass to remain inside for another 25 minutes while the oven is off and cooling down.

-Remove glass from oven… using oven mitts (I shouldn’t have to state this, but you would be surprised…)

-Again allow the glass to stay on the counter overnight before washing and using it
