I love painting glassware and trying new methods to get different looks. I tried a drip method a few months ago and really liked the result. As Halloween approaches, these goblets would make a great way to festively adorn any table – and they are so easy to make!
There are many different types of glass paints out there, and each give a slightly different look. Some are dishwasher safe, some are not. Some may be put to your lips, some should not. I’ve used two types of glass paint (shown below) for this drip effect. The paint on the left is my favorite because the applicator is easier to use and you don’t have to thin the paint down. The Gloss Enamels paint on the right comes in more color options, but it needs to be thinned down with a thinning medium. I purchased both of these at JoAnn’s Fabrics, but you could also find them at Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, etc.
To be safe, I don’t let the drips get too close to the rim. When the longest streaks get within about 1-3 inches of the rim, I turn the glass back upright and let it drip down the other way. As the paint dries, I will flip the glass on either side every few minutes so that the paint distributes evenly.
When you’re done, let the glass sit for 10 days before washing them and you have modern and unique (not to mention dishwasher safe!) goblets in your collection!
